My post on Stack Overflow was automatically turned into a Community Wiki, the rules of which I was not aware of before. This seems to have happened because it was edited more than ten times by me. The edits had a valid reason, and the post was flagged to undo its Community Wiki status, which a moderator indeed did.
After almost one day's heavy work with the OP, it was accepted as the correct answer while in the Community Wiki state. With this state reverted, the relevant reputation, i.e. upvotes and answer selection after becoming CW, seems to be lost. I have tried to wait for several hours to check if this is just a latency issue, but it does not seem to be so.
I was looking for similar threads on Meta, and found these:
- What are "Community Wiki" posts?
- There was another one, which I cannot find right now. Sorry about that.
Would it be possible to implement a feature which makes it possible to either not lose or reclaim the reputation?
