Considering https://android.stackexchange.com/privileges/community-wiki,

When should I make my answers Community Wiki?

  1. When you want to enhance the "wiki" aspect of your post, so that it can be a continually evolving source of good information through repeated editing.
  2. When you feel your post would benefit from less concern about voting affecting the reputation of those participating in it

should the following questions be made CW? I am specifically concerned about point #1, since these canonical questions will benefit from regular updates:

How do I root my Android device?
I've rooted my phone. Now what? What do I gain from rooting?

If not, how are questions like When will my phone get Android 2.3 different?

  • Thanks for bringing this up. I guess I forgot to wiki them once I became a mod :)

Sure, I think that's a good idea -- I've gone ahead and wiki-ed those posts.

There are also some fairly major changes coming to allow more editing by low rep and anon users, but the community wiki designator will always make editing easier.
