I stumbled across a question on SO while looking for answers and ended up adding my own answer to the list of suggested solutions. Soon after this I realized that this question was a community wiki before I had added my answer to it.
According to the community this was the best answer as it received most upvotes for the question but I received nothing for it. Why?
Why does making a question/answer a part of the community wiki mean no one can earn points for contributing to it?
What's the reason for the reputation being disassociated with the contributor?
I understand on a technical level that the posts sort of gets owned by the community user instead of me but that shouldn't mean I get nothing for contributing should it?
I've read the post What are "Community Wiki" posts and I'm not concerned with what Community Wiki posts are. I'm concerned with the rep-denial aspect and the reasoning behind it.
That said Robert's answer addressed this.
