This question was converted to community wiki by its most recent edit, which exceeded the threshold for number of editors. The message in the revision log is "[made Community Wiki by being edited by more than 5 different editors]".

What surprised me is that the triggering edit was made by the original poster. Is that correct behavior -- CW is triggered specifically by the number of editors, not writers, of a post, so the OP doesn't count unless he edits after posting? It does say "editors" in the CW-ification note in the revision history; I'm asking because I had previously thought it was the number of total people involved in the post, and I'm not sure where I got that impression.

Far as I know, this is currently by design. Only actual edits (except ones done by the Community "user") contribute to the number of people involved in the post and the original posting doesn't count.
