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
Does Community Wiki make it magically on topic? – random Dec 21 '10 at 17:15

You can't; only moderators can. This was done because some users would erroneously mark their questions as CW without knowing what it's for.

Also, even more people seemed to think that it should be used for off topic questions. This is not true and off topic questions are not allowed, CW or not.

Long story short the vast majority of the users didn't know what it was for or thought they did, so 90%+ of the questions tagged as CW shouldn't have, and now this functionality is mod only.

Stumbled across this, coming from this thread. I don't know if you or the other high-rank users are aware, but this is still a privilege, defined here. This page might mislead some users now that this feature has been disabled. – lunchmeat317 Apr 1 '11 at 23:37
@lunch: you can still mark answers as community wiki, and that page specifies "answer" – Andreas Bonini Apr 2 '11 at 11:55
Whoops! Nice catch. Thanks for the clarification. – lunchmeat317 Apr 2 '11 at 19:02
