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

This question already has an answer here:

After a lengthy period of editing in this post and finally getting it right, the OP accepted my answer

However, my activity list then showed the following entry:

which is kind of disappointing. These are probably my hardest earned 0 points so far. ;-)

My votes activity list does not show any sign of my own voting on that post:

Does anyone know what went wrong, or rather, what I did wrong?

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.

Because it's a community wiki. You probably accidentally checked the checked box. – JonW Aug 5 '13 at 6:06
I have un-wikified the answer. – balpha Aug 5 '13 at 6:35
@JonW no, it's turned to CW automatically after 10 edits by the OP. – Shadow Wizard Aug 5 '13 at 7:38

Due to more than 10 times of editing by you, the answer converted to Community Wiki. And you don't earn rep from CW posts.

Indeed. This is potentially an edge case, where someone who was trying to be helpful and add additional information to his answer in response to comments from the asker got bitten by the automatic wikification. Moderators can un-wiki an answer that gets automatically converted; raise a flag to ask them to take a look. – Cody Gray Aug 5 '13 at 6:16
