I am sure there are several reasons to make questions community-wiki and most of the questions are made community-wiki for the right reasons.
However, I also get a feeling that there is a sub-conscious/unsaid rule that you deserve only so many points for a particular question. No matter how good/relevant. If have too many upvotes, you're a point glutton - stay in your limits. So if your question seems like it will get several upvotes, you are forced to make it a community wiki. Is this right or am I missing something?
This is the specific question.
Within 10 minutes of asking this question. There was a comment to make it community-wiki. that read "This should be a community-wiki" - There were 8 up-votes for that particular comment in a very short time. I was surprised at the speed and the number of up-votes for it. I don't know if others have had a similar experience, but, just left a bitter after taste adding to the fact that more importantly, I had only one responses to the question(possibly because it was made community-wiki).
(Agreed, I should have included this in my initial question & Never-mind the downvotes.)
This experience seemed bizarre so I thought this is a place where I could understand it better.
