Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

I answer this question originally entering just the following:

Tools > Import and Export Settings > Reset all settings > No, just reset settings, overwriting my current settings > Take your pick!

I then immediately edited to change the answer to:

Tools > Import and Export Settings > Reset all settings > No, just reset settings, overwriting my current settings > Take your pick! (i.e. Visual C# Development Settings) > Click Finish

And then the answer become a Community Wiki? I can't see what conditions I met to have this happen? I thought you needed about 10 edits for the answer to become a wiki entry?

Can anyone explain to me why this happened? I definitely didn't click it to be a wiki.

PEBCAK or 1d-10t error. –  Randolpho May 28 '10 at 13:55
    
Seat to Keyboard interface bug apparently. I still stand by the fact I never checked the box. –  GenericTypeTea May 28 '10 at 14:01

the threshold is 8 edits (9 items in the revision list), not 10 edits. The 7 ways a post can become community wiki is in meta.stackexchange.com/questions/11740/…, near "How does a post become a Community Wiki post?" –  Peter Mortensen May 28 '10 at 17:59

You definitely must have click it to be a wiki, at least accidentally

I thought that before I posted, but I always press TAB TAB enter to save. I thought maybe the TAB had skipped to the CheckBox, but the CheckBox isn't in the tab order. –  GenericTypeTea May 28 '10 at 13:50

You're right about that (just tried it), but unless there's a weird bug that only happened to you (as I recall, nobody ever had this problem) then you must have click it by accident. –  jmfsg May 28 '10 at 13:53
    
Yeah guess so. But in a year of editing answers I've never done it before and my hand was no where near the mouse. Never mind, just one of those things. –  GenericTypeTea May 28 '10 at 14:01

I suggest you try to reproduce it again and update your question with details, try it with answers to this question @gen –  jmfsg May 28 '10 at 15:23
