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. :( –  Anna 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 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 at 16:54
    
@Shog9 well, it's only part of what appears to be a bigger problem anyway. –  Shadow Wizard May 4 at 17:42
    
@ShadowWizard Hah. I ... forgot I even posted this. Funny how things change over the course of a few years. ;) –  Anna Lear May 5 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 at 19:17
