I recently posted an answer that got flagged as CW because I made 13 edits to it. I requested the flag to be removed because I think that post settles problems with other posts. The moderator wrote in his answer: “a CW answer should in no way be taken as an indication of being less correct”.
The overall question is: How is a CW answer ranked? In particular, my guess is that a CW answer still receives votes just the reputation is not assigned to anyone. Is that correct? Also, can the original writer of the post vote on his own post once it reaches community status?
