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

In wake of SUs lower threshold of posts for a community wiki switch.

Should SO follow suit, what is the magic number?

Etc ...

How is this working for you when you come across answers that have 10+ variations on a theme for simple questions? Like that SQL question you tried cleaning up some time ago – random Nov 27 '11 at 21:28

No, not until we have at least a month of data under the SU change to see how it's going to pan out.

can I mark this as correct? – waffles Jul 19 '09 at 23:41
@Sam: I would! No better answer than the person that's running the site! :-) – JFV Jul 20 '09 at 0:11

No, it doesn't take too many edits right now to switch it.

No, IMHO CW is there basically to stop rep whoring on fun questions, not to disincentivize answering questions that a lot of people find interesting.

I agree with this. I was against lowering the answer threshold on CW, but it looks like I was overruled. I would have only favored a lower automatic threshold if there was also a way in place to flip questions BACK in case of mistaken flips. – TheTXI Jul 20 '09 at 0:58
