Just a quick question: It seems that we are marking quite a lot of stuff as community wiki. Apparently you earn no rep from community wiki answers, which raises the question of whether it is a good idea to be using CW so much this early. Is this intentional? If so, is this such a good idea while we still have so few users with enough rep to vote to close/open and edit questions?
I'd like to propose the following FAQ statement about CW.
Since this answer will probably need editing, I'm marking it editable.
IMO, we're doing a reasonable job here. The problem about having too few users with power will be resolved soon when we have moderators who will act in the community's interest.
Reputation should be a signal of someone who an expert. Allowing too many open-ended questions could dilute the meaning of reputation on the site.
That being said, I think that many questions which are asked and are totally open-ended, could easily be rephrased in such a way as to be considered a valid question. Putting some research into the question helps, backed by some specifics.
