You might've noticed that some of my answers are community-wiki. Why? There are 3 reasons:

  1. I want to submit an answer, but if it's not good enough, I want everyone to participate and make edits to make my answer a lot more better.
  2. With the same reason earlier, downvotes could happen, but as it turns out, all my answers have a score of 0 or more (unless that changes).
  3. It's a good way to make things better. If it is a bad edit that they gave, I can just rollback to the desired revision.

But then @Penguin came up to me after I answered this and now I have made a decision to ask moderators to make some of my answers no longer community-wiki, particularly this one.

Now here are some questions you might ask because of this:

  • "Is this for the reputation?" Not quite. Instead of just getting people to edit it freely (if you have enough rep), I can review those edits instead if it suits well.

If you have more questions, feel free to ask them in the comments and I can put my answer here.

So here are the answers I want to no longer be community-wiki:

I will continue to make more CW answers if necessary.

Done! - I've removed the Community Wiki status from the two listed answers for you.

For future scenarios, here's some help center guidance for when posts should be considered for Community Wiki status:

When should I make my answers Community Wiki?

  1. When you want to enhance the "wiki" aspect of your post, so that it can be a continually evolving source of good information through repeated editing.
  2. When you feel your post would benefit from less concern about voting affecting the reputation of those participating in it.
