Since a wiki is usually edited by a couple of different people, over a longer period of time, it is impossible for the system to judge who actually wrote the part that make people upvote or downvote the article (be it a question or answer).

So to keep things simple it just won't give karma points to wiki-posts. I.e. if people upvote a wiki-article, the user won't get any karma for it, as the cited line tells.

If a regular article is upvoted, the author gains karma points for providing something that is helpful to others.
