Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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.
