I was unaware that making too many edits to your own answer will cause it to go into community wiki mode. I wrote a rather long answer that took a lot of time and research, and over the course of its lifetime I've edited it several times to correct myself and to build a complete answer. I was wondering if it is possible to have the CW mode status removed, at least just this once? Not a big deal for me, but thought it'd be worth it to ask.
Even as a site mod, there is no way to do this. It's happened to one of my best answers too, and it isn't reversible. I'm sorry.
If you plan on putting a lot of work into an answer, I suggest doing your editing in a different editor. If you're really working on a good answer, it showing up an hour or day or even week later than other answers because you invested the research and editing time isn't going to be a real problem.
And sometimes, it's just going to happen. I had one highly upvoted answer I put a lot of time into that several different people edited punctuation back and forth and kicked it over to CW so I'm not getting anything from it any more.
Just a quick warning to keep in mind for the future: editing an answer bumps to whole thread to the home page. If you are making substantial content edits and improving a valuable piece of content, that's fine. If you are just tweaking things because you feel like it and the regular site visitors have already seen your content bumped a time or two, it might be time to let it go until there is a significant reason for a revision.
In particular I would say that editing to fix formatting/style issues is fine on an answer that is already on the home page. Also editing to change a statement or add references or whatever is fine, but a simple word bolding or capitalization isn't a good reason to bump.
