This question may have been addressed in another post but I could not quite find what I was looking for.

My question is what exactly is Community Wiki and how does reputation work on Community Wiki?

I am curious because I answered a question last night that was originally posted on MSE. Then when I looked this morning the post had been moved to Community Wiki. I received a nice answer badge but obtained no reputation. Do you not receive reputation for Community Wiki answers?

Again sorry if this question has already been asked. I appreciate and comments. Thank you!

You do not earn or lose reputation on Community Wiki (CW) posts. However, if some votes were cast before the post became a CW, you keep the points. This may be relevant for your answer to another soft question which I expect to become CW in near future.

For details of the CW feature, see What are "Community Wiki" posts?
