My answer on this question is Community Wiki, but I didn't edit my answer 10 times, nor I checked "community wiki" checkbox.

Is there a particular reason why it became wiki when I posted it?


Yax, the answer's revision history shows that you made it Community Wiki yourself:

Post Made Community Wiki by Yax - occurred 21 mins ago

You can flag your answer for moderator attention, explain that it was made CW by mistake and ask for the CW status to be removed.

    I must have made it by mistake. Thanks for the answer! – Yax Jan 15 '12 at 12:42
  • Also, that revision history implicitly shows you clicked the checkbox while editing in the 5 minute grace period (the time in which edits do not create a new revision), @Yax. When clicking it before saving it the first time, the notice is below the post, in the revision history. – Arjan Jan 15 '12 at 13:04

Just testing to see if you get any alert when mistakenly checking the "community wiki" box..

Nope - no alert at all so it might be good idea to post Feature Request asking to add such alert as this can't be undone and people tend to do mistakes.
