Yesterday I asked a question seeking published references studying popular games, to start building up an undergraduate research program. Today I woke up to find it had been made community wiki. Now, I don't actually care about reputation, and I don't want this to sound like sour grapes, but it made me curious. I googled "what is community wiki" and found another meta thread: What are "Community Wiki" posts?
Seems like the point of community wiki is to make the post "owned" by the community, in case it's going to be edited a lot. But mine is not going to be edited. Sometimes it seems we use CW on "soft" questions without mathematical content, but this seems clearly research related to me, since it's producing lots of references about published papers. On the other hand, there won't be one unique correct answer...does that affect CW status?
Can anyone clarify for me when something should/should not be CW, maybe with an eye towards this example?
