My answer here was switched from CW and I did not get any rep for it. (except for the accepted answer rep)

There is nothing in the revision history to even suggest a CW ever happened even.

Did you the recalc? –  BalusC Dec 27 '11 at 14:26
    
@Chichiray yep. to no avail. the +60 rep just is not there.... –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Dec 27 '11 at 14:27
    
Did you get upvotes after the change? –  Oded Dec 27 '11 at 14:27
    
@Oded no I did not. (well not that I know of). –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Dec 27 '11 at 14:28

Well, that would probably explain it. Upvotes that happened during the CW period are CW upvotes, not yours... –  Oded Dec 27 '11 at 14:30

@Oded that makes no sense. It was switched back. it should have a fallback to me. I would understand if it was the other way, but it was not. –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Dec 27 '11 at 14:31

I believe you only get the rep for upvotes you got when the post was not marked as CW. –  Oded Dec 27 '11 at 14:34
    
@Oded do you have any documentation to that fact? –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Dec 27 '11 at 14:34

@amanaPlanaCAnalPAnaMA It was switched back. it should have a fallback to me. would it be right to assume that you'd agree to get all the CW-period downvotes in this case, too? –  gnat Dec 27 '11 at 14:38
    
@Oded -- that is the other way around.... –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Dec 27 '11 at 14:38

@gnat yes, yes I should get all of the votes no matter what they were. ^_^ –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Dec 27 '11 at 14:39

Related thing here - but I don't really understand Jeff Atwood's comment on his answer, apart from the fact that this type of thing is quite rare. –  Mat Dec 27 '11 at 14:42

It makes sense though. Votes are easier given away if the post is CW. –  BalusC Dec 27 '11 at 14:43

up vote 6 down vote accepted

Based on the rundown in the FAQ on CW, these points seem to indicate that you shouldn't necessarily expect any reputation for the post (on votes cast by peers within the period of it being CW):

  • Community Wiki posts are owned by the Community User, not by any individual user.
  • Voting on a community wiki post (up or down) does not affect any user's reputation.
  • The original author keeps the reputation gained (or lost) before their post entered community mode.
  • Rollbacks do not reverse any of the Community Wiki mode calculations.

Perhaps the FAQ needs to be updated to be more explicitly clear on that, but if you get reputation up to the point of it being made Community Wiki then you should expect to gather reputation from the point that it was non-Community Wiki (which is redundant now, since there is no such thing, the post is just yours again (but not votes, Community owns those given)), but not to gain reputation of votes cast throughout that period (as in a backlog).

Ahhh I see. Rollbacks do not reverse any of the Community Wiki mode calculations. <-- from the answer. –  amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Dec 27 '11 at 15:41
    
Forgot to add that item, thanks, I'll edit it in. –  Grant Thomas Dec 27 '11 at 15:43
