Possible Duplicates:
12 edits make an answer community wiki?
Is there a way to remove community wiki status?

I added this answer and edited it to correct a mistake and add more information. It was made community wiki after 12 edits, but it is a regular answer. How can I undo this?

  • One a question is made community wiki (in this cause, caused by a large number of edits) as far as I know it can't be reverted.

  • @Sonorx, if you read the possible dupe you will see an explanation. The goal is to stop you making trivial edits for the purpose of bumping up your answer and getting more upvotes.

  • I noticed you added a comment to your answer. Note that a comment is not the same as clicking the "flag" link!

  • I add that comment in flag link, and duplicate it in comment.

I think you can still Delete a CW answer (if it is yours). So you could Copy-Paste it to a new answer and delete the old one. You can't take the points with you.

    Somehow this feels messy. Note that 10k users will then see both the deleted answer and the new one. Just for some reputation?
