Barry and Simon, what am I doing wrong??? It drives me crazy when I think of a good question, and you "Wikify" it. Can you outline what makes a "wiki" question, and especially, what does not??? I feel especially picked on [just paranoia- I have enough points for a baseball team...]. Help!!!

You've asked this question before at A LOT of my questions end up being turned into Community Wiki questions. How can I avoid this? and the answer remains the same.

We have tended to switch questions to Community Wiki when it is clear there can never be a definitive, correct answer to a question.

For example, "Why is the sky blue?" may have a definitive answer and so it will never be turned into a Community Wiki question.

"What did you have for dinner today?" is obviously a question with no definitive correct answer and may well be turned into a Community Wiki question.

Avoiding asking this second type of question will definitely avoid the question becoming Community Wiki.
