Currently, if a user edits their answer more than a certain number of times, that answer is automatically converted by the system to community wiki status. This trips up many well-meaning and active contributors to the site, and I believe it no longer serves a useful purpose. Therefore, I propose that the system no longer automatically convert answers to community wiki due to a large number of edits.
I know we've had this discussion before, and this was declined at that time, but the site has changed since then. Suggested edits allow anyone to provide improvements to answers, making the lowering of the reputation threshold for edits on community wiki posts effectively meaningless.
We've also been able to observe the behavior of people in the years since then. We see a decent number of flags and Meta posts from people shocked that the system did this to answers that they've curated, and disappointed with the reputation they've lost as a result. Handling the flags on this and reversing wiki status takes up moderator time that could be better spent elsewhere.
I understand the argument that people should try to make more substantive edits, but is this really that big of a problem? Do we care if someone makes many small tweaks to their answer over time to keep it up to date? We want people to maintain their answers over a long period, and keep them from becoming outdated. Given that few people seem to be aware that the automatic conversion even takes place, it wouldn't even seem to be a good deterrent of this behavior anyway.
I know that only a very small number of people are affected by this, but the harm appears to outweigh any possible good that this feature provides, so I propose that it finally be removed.
