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

For example, if a question you ask get 20 up votes, so you probably get 100 points for it, but it seems like there are some questions out there that have 200 up votes but is a Community Wiki, and the user only have 200 rep points?

Once you change a question to community wiki, do you lose all points you got earlier, or for future up votes?

You should note that questions can only be turned CW by mods now – Tobias Kienzler Nov 1 '10 at 11:47
up vote 3 down vote accepted

Only future votes are affected; you still keep the reputation gains and losses from votes before entering CW
