Here's an idle question based on idle curiosity (so please don't feel obliged to spend time answering it; close/delete it if you like).
What's your rationale for making a question "Community Wiki"?
For example in the question titled Recommended budget waterproof jacket there's a comment, an up-voted comment, which says, "Converted to wiki, there's no right answer to this."
Is the reason:
- To prevent the question getting rep.?
- To prevent answers getting rep.?
- To make the questions and answers easier for other low-rep users to edit?
- Superstition (e.g. "if there's more than one right answer then it should be CW, for no particular reason")?
Policy for CW has varied over the years and it's now something of a moderator decision, and I'm curious to know the benefit of CW. I once argued against the CW police myself and, as I said, I'm just idly/mildly curious to understand the actual or alleged benefit of CW in this situation.
This is presumably a question adressed only to the mods, e.g. Neil.
