I removed CW status from this answer. Before I did that, the revision history showed that the post was made Community Wiki by the poster.

Now that I removed CW, the revision history does not show either that the post was ever CW or that I cleared the status.

You altered the timestream. Stop doing that. – mmyers Aug 25 '11 at 21:59
@mmyers Sorry. :( – Adam Lear Aug 26 '11 at 18:46
Looks like currently, if you remove wiki, we record a wiki removed but the original made wiki is gone. If you remake wiki, the remove notice remains, and a new made wiki is added. Removing wiki again removes both those items and adds a new one. Looks like we only keep the data directly on the post and don't have history on it. Perhaps we should. – Oded Aug 8 '13 at 11:18
@Oded it just caused another case of confusion - think I should start bug report? – Shadow Wizard Nov 21 '13 at 19:31
@ShaWizDowArd - dunno. CW is rare enough that it is an anomaly by itself. Not sure this is worth our time to sort out. – Oded Nov 21 '13 at 19:33
Well, now that you're a dev, Anna, can't you just fix this yourself? – Shadow Wizard May 4 '14 at 13:16
Half of this was fixed about a year ago, @Shadow - we made the "mod removes wiki" entries public. The other half... Well, probably need to think a bit about what should happen there: it's not like we actually treat de-wikied posts as though they were wikied during that period. – Shog9 May 4 '14 at 16:54
@Shog9 well, it's only part of what appears to be a bigger problem anyway. – Shadow Wizard May 4 '14 at 17:42
@ShadowWizard Hah. I ... forgot I even posted this. Funny how things change over the course of a few years. ;) – Adam Lear May 5 '14 at 18:31
All good Anna, I sometimes post something only to find I already asked this exact thing (usually a feature request) in the past! :-) – Shadow Wizard May 5 '14 at 19:17

Apparently we started recording/showing this at some point. Using my own example:
