I have just had an answer marked as community wiki after I edited it once. What's going on? Is this deliberate?

    $\begingroup$ @Kaveh vzn's link points out that moderators can un-CW a post that was made so because of edit count. Can this be done in this case? (Ditto for the answers.) $\endgroup$ – David Richerby Jan 30 '14 at 17:14

    $\begingroup$ @David, yes, mods can do that (though we normally don't do it as it is quite a pain to do this every time a question and its answers becomes CW). $\endgroup$ – Kaveh Jan 30 '14 at 17:16

It became CW because Mohammad edited his question and it became CW because of the number of edits and when a question becomes CW all its new answers become CW also automatically.

    $\begingroup$ Ah. Thanks. That's a pretty ridiculous "feature". $\endgroup$ – David Richerby Jan 30 '14 at 16:01

    $\begingroup$ CW is left mostly untouched since SE 1.0. I think SE is working on changing how CW works as they did for closing and faq/help page. $\endgroup$ – Kaveh Jan 30 '14 at 16:32
