Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Possible Duplicates:
When to mark the ‘community wiki’ checkbox on a new question?
What are “Community Wiki” posts?

I have been chastised for marking things "Community Wiki" when they shouldn't be. I thought anything that would help the community would go there, but maybe I'm wrong. Help please!

Whoa, I had no idea the "possible duplicate of" comments were autogenerated. – Pops Jul 19 '10 at 18:36

That's a proposed FAQ entry; there's actually an official FAQ entry, too. – Pops Jul 19 '10 at 18:32
Good answer, though! :) – Bill the Lizard Jul 19 '10 at 18:36
