Whenever I am on a Community Wiki, it seems that the reputation of users is hidden. I'm running on Google Chrome Windows XP. Is this a bug? or working as intended?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
Working as intended. Community Wiki questions do not affect reputation, and therefore, the reputation is hidden. Generally, CW questions should not be something that has one and only one answer, where reputation is awarded and important.
Not a bug - as designed as I understand CW.
CW is about the question and answer content, not the rep of the people asking and answering. Thus, one can edit others' CW questions and answers freely. There's even less ownership of CW content than for SO in general.
The editors' rep is not germane, and I suppose the editors' names are displayed just to enhance the sense of community.
