This question shows as being Community Wiki on the question page. However, if you check its revision history, it shows that a moderator removed Community Wiki status.

Additionally, I tried answering that question as a test (10k-only), and it was also marked as Community Wiki, by virtue of the question being such. There was no checkbox to select it for myself.

Why does it continue to show and behave as Community Wiki, even though a moderator removed its status?

It appears* that removing Wiki status, then adding it again, only generates a Mod Removes Wiki revision history entry.

* I removed, edited, then re-added community wiki status to that post.

One would expect a subsequent Post Made Community Wiki revision, but this does not appear.

Perhaps a "made wiki" entry is only ever added once. Who knows - there is quite a long history of weirdness with CW revision history entries.

It was made Community Wiki again, but that action does not show in the revision history.
