@Matt this can be posted as answer IMO as it clearly answers the question, maybe elaborate a bit by adding quotes from the faq page. –  Shadow Wizard Jan 18 '12 at 12:06
    
@ShaDowWizArd: I originally posted it as an answer, but it was auto-converted to a comment; I've elaborated a bit as you suggested and given the answer another go ;). –  Matt Jan 18 '12 at 13:12
    
@Matt auto converted?? That's new to me.. cheers anyway now that you got it through. :-) –  Shadow Wizard Jan 18 '12 at 13:25

Posts which aren't Community Wiki posts are deemed "non-wiki". For more info, see the FAQ section on "What are 'Community Wiki' posts".

Community Wiki posts work by transferring ownership of the post from the original author to the community. They make the post easier to edit and maintain by a wider group of users, but they do not contribute to any user's reputation.
