This is a follow-up to Edit marked as by "Community User" I've noticed that some "Community" edits are not associated with any revision. For example, here's a question that is reported to have been modified by "Community":

However, if I click on it, I don't see any revision history.

What did "Community" do, in this instance? Is it some automated task that the system runs to bump unanswered questions to the top?

    Community does indeed bump unanswered question up from time to time, where 'unanswered' means no answers with positive scores. There's nothing in the (mod-only) timeline, so I guess this is what has happened. However, I think only a member of staff can be certain.

Occasionally Community bumps questions that are unanswered in order to encourage people to answer them. In this case, the one answer to the question has not been upvoted, so Community assumes the question hasn't really been answered.

  • Thanks for this, Jon.
