  • $\begingroup$ @ToddTrimble I wonder whether it would be better to retag the question as (support) or - since it was originally tagged as bug - simply to add (status-bydesign). But since the latter can only be added by moderators (or other diamond-bearing users), it seemed natural to ask you for opinion on this. $\endgroup$ Dec 9, 2018 at 7:56

  • $\begingroup$ @AryehKontorovich: no need to delete it! Community Wiki doesn’t mean the question was bad, just that it fits certain criteria — mostly, that it can have many good answers, and that it’s unlikely any one can be definitive — which, for various reasons, clash a bit with the usual reputation system, and so a CW flag keeps the question open but makes it reputation-neutral. $\endgroup$ Dec 10, 2018 at 10:37
  • $\begingroup$ Since the question is about situations when upvotes do not add reputation, the daily reputation limit should probably be mentioned, too. For more details, see: Reputation not moving up while having 27 upvotes and 5 points for an upvote to an answer?. $\endgroup$ Dec 14, 2018 at 11:24
