What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

When I have a question or answer that is getting a few downvotes and I come to realize it is a bad post, but that it should not be deleted, I will commonly edit the post to be community wiki so I stop losing rep on it.

My question is, if a question had +5 votes before being marked community wiki, after marking it CW do these votes get reassigned to the Community user(and thus, you would lose 5 votes during a recalc)?

No. All votes before the CW switch still count.
