What are “Community Wiki” posts?
Threshold for turning posts to CW Mode, on 8th revision or 9th?

There's a few similar questions around here. Most of them suggest the answer is

  • Six edits by four different people, or
  • Eight edits by the original poster

But in a recent answer of mine I made ten edits, and the answer is still not a community wiki.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You only made 9 edits. Try it again and see if that does it. There are 10 revisions, but only 9 edits to the original version. – Adam Davis Feb 13 '12 at 15:55
One of your edits was probably inside the grace period; when you first post you have a few minutes to edit without it counting as an "edit" (so you don't clog up revision history I guess) – Ben Brocka Feb 13 '12 at 15:56
You might be counting the initial post as an "edit". I see only 9... oops; I see @AdamDavis already said that. D'oh! (on mobile; can't delete) – Andrew Barber Feb 13 '12 at 15:59
If you link to the questions that say six/eight, I'll go try to fix them. – Pops Feb 13 '12 at 16:20

The FAQ question on Community Wiki posts states that a post will be made CW if;

  • The body of the post has been edited by at least five (5) different users.
  • The post has been edited ten (10) times by the original owner.

... and a few other reasons, which aren't relevant to your question.
