# Requests to remove community wiki

In the old days of MathOverflow, community wiki status was irreversible. This is no longer the case! There are many old questions and answers that became community wiki by accident or other reasons. For example, I had turned my first MathOverflow answer community wiki just to see what the button did.

Post requests for removal of community wiki status here. You can get a list of all your community wiki posts with this data query.

PS: Removing community wiki status is not an edit, so don't worry about bumping old questions.

• You read my mind, because I was about to request CW-removal for When does $ZFC \vdash\ ' ZFC \vdash \varphi\ '$ imply $ZFC \vdash \varphi$?, but I see you already removed it there. Sep 24 '13 at 16:55
• Would this have a retroactive effect on reputation? Sep 24 '13 at 18:24
• In theory but only after a recalc, which are not all that frequent, I think. Sep 24 '13 at 18:36
• @TheMaskedAvenger One can trigger a reputation recalculation, by going to mathoverflow.net/reputation, scrolling to the bottom, and clicking the button there. Sep 24 '13 at 19:11
• (Thank you, @FrançoisG.Dorais for the prompt response.) Sep 24 '13 at 19:56
• Recalcs are no longer necessary, rep is basically real time on SE 2.0 :) If the status is removed, any rep change should take an almost (within the minute) immediate effect. Sep 27 '13 at 15:49
• Is this intended for all requests, or only ones from MO 1.0? Is flagging a good way to make such requests? Oct 2 '13 at 7:21
• @Jonas: Yes, flagging is a good way to make such requests. Oct 3 '13 at 1:36
• (I upvoted one of the answers so Community won't bump it ever again!)

• @Tim Post: I don’t believe this. Around October 11, my reputation suddenly went up by 40 or so points in the blink of an eye, whereas according to the reputation tab, I was supposed to lose 50 points due to a deletion of a user at that point. After seeing this thread, the only explanation I have for that mysterious behaviour is that the deletion of the user triggered a recalc of my reputation, which retroactively added points for an answer to the question mentioned above by Andres Caicedo, de-CWed on September 24.

[DONE] Please remove CW from A recommended roadmap into inner models.

And noise to avoid this being turned into a comment.

• @François, thanks for that. I have always regretted on posting that as wiki.

[DONE] Please remove CW from Solutions to the Continuum Hypothesis.

It is a nice question (even though its wording could use some tweaking), and has received some excellent answers.

[DONE] perhaps this old answer can be un-CW-ed? (9 revisions triggered the CW status on MO 1.0)

thanks!

• Okay, it's undone.

There are a few requests to remove CW in the comments of: The conditions in the definition of Brownian motion which was bumped recently.

[DONE] Please remove CW from A question about Transfinite Induction.

And noise to avoid this being turned into a comment.

[DONE] Please remove CW from

And noise $\&$c $\&$c.

[DONE] Please remove CW from this answer to

And noise, as usual.

[DONE] I ask for removing CW from this answer to this question. It was a misunderstanding on my part at that time.

Here are two more, both in the same answer to avoid cluttering:

• It seems the first question was intentionally made CW by the author, and I don't want to override that decision. Sep 26 '13 at 21:54
• I removed CW from Noam's answer, but left it on the question since that is probably the author's wish. Sep 26 '13 at 22:25
• I also removed CW from the other question's answers. Sep 26 '13 at 22:29
