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

It appears to me that "What is Community Wiki for?" should be a frequently asked question. That is: it was not among SO's faq's. I asked a question that could not have just one answer, but it was of a technical nature. I checked it, I believe incorrectly, as Community Wiki.

The FAQ on the top is different that then Community FAQ.
