Am I blind or is the community wiki checkbox missing ?

(I'm asking because I was trying to convert this question).

    I also don't see a need for this question to be CW. It is asking about the major differences of 2 Drupal database backends, that can be answered objectively. – Mad Scientist Mar 7 '11 at 18:17
  • I would think so too, but I doubt a singe post will list all reasons: it's most likely going to be multiple answers/authors that will make the full answer to the question. – wildpeaks Mar 7 '11 at 18:21
  • Furthermore, not all reasons that differ between database apply to drupal, it is/was more a guide to requirements that would indicate which engine fits better than the other due to what Drupal modules one uses, it's not a "mysql vs posgres" thread. But it's ok, I guess optimization is a too advanced topic for a Q&A site. – wildpeaks Mar 7 '11 at 21:06

Questions can no longer be made community wiki by the author, you have to flag a moderator and ask for the questions to be made CW. Answers can still be made community wiki as usual.

We have provided some additional guidance at the blog:

TL;DR version

Most of the time, you should be asking yourself “How can I improve this post so that community wiki isn’t needed?” Community wiki is like a cheese knife: it is a specialized tool to be used sparingly, and only in very specific circumstances.
