What are “Community Wiki” posts on Stack Overflow?

After finding zero reliable and working information on iptables and egress rules on the first page of Google, I did a bunch of research and thought ServerFault would be a great place to store this information to save other people time.

I initially posted this as a Community Wiki, then was yelled at, so I reposted it as a question and answer...and got downvoted for it by people that misunderstood the concept of "community wiki" as I did.

What can we do to clarify what Community Wiki means?

I was thinking that maybe we should put a little question mark next to it and say that it is for "subjective" posts only. Or perhaps we should change the name to "completely subjective"?

I don't see it as an exact duplicate. There is a difference between "What is a Community Wiki post" and "How Can we Clarify It". One is informational, the other might lead to good feature requests. Please re-open. –  Adam Brand Aug 30 '09 at 17:33
    
please provide links to your actual question, since this is about [specific-question] really. –  Jeff Atwood Aug 31 '09 at 5:39
