My answer on this question is Community Wiki, but I didn't edit my answer 10 times, nor I checked "community wiki" checkbox.

Is there a particular reason why it became wiki when I posted it?

Yax, the answer's revision history shows that you made it Community Wiki yourself:

Post Made Community Wiki by Yax - occurred 21 mins ago

You can flag your answer for moderator attention, explain that it was made CW by mistake and ask for the CW status to be removed.

I must have made it by mistake. Thanks for the answer! –  Yax Jan 15 '12 at 12:42
Also, that revision history implicitly shows you clicked the checkbox while editing in the 5 minute grace period (the time in which edits do not create a new revision), @Yax. When clicking it before saving it the first time, the notice is below the post, in the revision history. –  Arjan Jan 15 '12 at 13:04

Just testing to see if you get any alert when mistakenly checking the "community wiki" box..

Nope - no alert at all so it might be good idea to post Feature Request asking to add such alert as this can't be undone and people tend to do mistakes.

That feature request exists: Are you sure you want to make this community wiki? –  Arjan Jan 15 '12 at 13:00
@Arjan thanks, looks like it won't get implemented any time soon, the community itself pretty much declined it. Oh well.. :) –  Shadow Wizard Jan 15 '12 at 18:47
Well, maybe the community downvoted that as the question itself is kind of bad. On the other hand: the question started okay; maybe we should rollback! –  Arjan Jan 15 '12 at 18:56
@Arjan well the OP isn't really active here anymore so it might be good idea. :) –  Shadow Wizard Jan 15 '12 at 21:11
