I have answered a question on Stack Overflow, but I didn't get any reputation points for the answer after my answer got accepted. I checked the wiki and search this site and cannot figure out why. Here is the link of my answer.
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
By editing it more than ten times, you automatically made your answer Community Wiki (see revision 12). You cannot earn repuation from Community Wiki posts.

Your answer is Community Wiki answer. In this case you do not get any reputation points for that answer.
You can not have any reputation as accepted answer or vote up for a Community Wiki answer
