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

I added one of my answer to community wiki by mistake. And asked moderator to remove it.

If a moderator removes CW, is the reputation earned from upvotes while the answer was CW preserved, or is it lost?

The upvotes are not rolled back, but I'm not sure if you get credit for the rep earned while the answer was CW. – Robert Harvey Jul 11 '13 at 17:53
the first question comes to mind... How many up votes? – Anoop Vaidya Jul 11 '13 at 17:54
I don't remember off the top of my head. Link to the post? – Adam Lear Jul 11 '13 at 17:54
@AnoopVaidya Can't get you? – Chirag Vidani Jul 11 '13 at 17:59
@AnnaLear Are you asking for link of the post? – Chirag Vidani Jul 11 '13 at 18:00
Why are you worry about, few 10s points, you should take SO as learning sharing of your knowledge, points wont help you. I know many SO friends with few thousand reps but more knowledge than me :) – Anoop Vaidya Jul 11 '13 at 18:05
@AnoopVaidya Yes you are absolutely right. But as question is raised in my mind, it's human tendency to search for an answer :) – Chirag Vidani Jul 11 '13 at 18:09
@AnnaLear - I believe the post in question is this one:… . I rolled back the CW status on it earlier today. Looks like it's as Robert says. – Brad Larson Jul 11 '13 at 18:11
@BradLarson Heh, I was partially responding to Robert. I seem to have left eloquence and clarity at home today, though. The upvotes are definitely not rolled back (not a surprise there - that'd be pretty weird behaviour if we undid the votes), but the rep will be awarded as if the post was never wiki'd. – Adam Lear Jul 11 '13 at 23:06
