# 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. – Andrés E. Caicedo Sep 24 '13 at 16:55
• Would this have a retroactive effect on reputation? – The Masked Avenger Sep 24 '13 at 18:24
• In theory but only after a recalc, which are not all that frequent, I think. – François G. Dorais 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. – Andrés E. Caicedo Sep 24 '13 at 19:11
• (Thank you, @FrançoisG.Dorais for the prompt response.) – Andrés E. Caicedo 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. – Tim Post 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? – Jonas Meyer Oct 2 '13 at 7:21
• @Jonas: Yes, flagging is a good way to make such requests. – François G. Dorais Oct 3 '13 at 1:36
• (I upvoted one of the answers so Community won't bump it ever again!) – Asaf Karagila Nov 2 '13 at 12:12
• @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. – Emil Jeřábek Nov 2 '13 at 13:24

And noise to avoid this being turned into a comment.

• @François, thanks for that. I have always regretted on posting that as wiki. – Asaf Karagila Sep 26 '13 at 20:22

[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. – Todd Trimble Apr 4 '15 at 23:32

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

And noise to avoid this being turned into a comment.

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