Whenever a question is made community wiki after the fact, it seems like all the associated answers don't also get concerted. Here's an example:

Video lectures and presentations on quantitative finance

This is by-design. Answers posted after a question is manually converted to community wiki will automatically be made community wiki. However, answers posted before a question is manually converted to community wiki are not switched over.

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.
