Until a year ago, when posts were edited by the same author at least 10 times, the post is automatically converted to a CW-post. This was perhaps reasonable if the edits happened within the same day. However, this also affects edits over longer periods. As I constantly maintain my answers over years, generally to fix outdated/broken links, improve/alter based on comments, and/or to reflect the current state of technology, a few of my older and more popular answers suddenly became auto-CW'ed this way. Among others, it are the below ones:
This felt like as a punishment. It's as if my edits over years were not appreciated by the system. Moreover, the CW status implies in some way that answer is subjective/grayish and I just don't find it fits the posts in question. This was also reflected by the community via the below meta posts:
- Can we disable automatic community wiki conversion for answer edits?
- Don't auto community wiki answers to questions made CW through too many edits
- Stop auto-cw for self-edited posts
As per the first meta post, this has one year ago been changed by disabling all forms of auto-CW conversions. I also noticed that moderators are able to undo a auto-CW conversion.
So, hereby I want to request you, can you please undo the auto-CW conversion on the abovementioned posts? I also wonder what happens to the "missing" rep collected by votes during the CW period. Would this be automatically recalculated, or doesn't this change anything?
