I answered this question on StackOverflow: Javascript to Dynamically Create Spaces/Folders in Alfresco Doesn't Work Correctly
Then a bounty of +50 is offered on this question. As the question is changed by the owner, I change my answer in accordance with the changed question. I changed my answer 13 times. It shows this:

community wiki 13 revs swemon

After the bounty period, the owner accepts my answer. As far as I know, when one's answer is accepted, one gains +15 reputation. But my reputation has not changed.


You don't gain reputation on community wiki posts, which includes the reputation from it being accepted by the OP. The only reputation you can gain from a CW answer is a bounty award.

  • Also I do not get bounty award because the question owner accepts my answer after giving bounty award to another person whose answer the most upvote. :D – swemon Sep 6 '12 at 3:08
  • When was this made? :o I thought only vote up and down are not affected. – Praveen Kumar Purushothaman Nov 10 '16 at 16:24
  • @PraveenKumar Pretty sure it's always functioned this way since community wiki was created. This answer is from 2012, so it's not exactly a recent change. – animuson Nov 10 '16 at 16:30
  • @animuson Tried answering a question in CW mode, and got slightly taken aback that I didn't get rep for getting my answer accepted. Woah! :) – Praveen Kumar Purushothaman Nov 10 '16 at 16:31
