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

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.
