Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I know that the Community user is not an actual user, and it keeps the site clean. I just wanted to know if there is someone who keeps a check on the actions of the Community user.

Will the rejected edits be manually checked by someone?

Your suggested edit here got stomped on by an edit by the original poster of the question. Yours is a lot better though, so please resubmit it so this injustice can be righted. (Also, get rid of "Hi", "please help me" and capitalize "Android" if you would. Thanks!) – Bill the Lizard Aug 1 '12 at 13:37

Community is no human; things are assigned automatically to Community under certain circumstances, as a result of voting and other actions by actual humans.

Those humans and their actions are accountable, no need to check Community for any irregularities here.

In other words, your edit was rejected by a human, and in this case the human probably clicked the 'Improve' button and marked your edit as 'not helpful'. Another possibility is that there was a conflicting edit that invalidated yours, resulting in an automatic reject.

See How do suggested edits work?

If this is the specific case then the edit most likely clashed with the one of the OP at that same time. – Bart Aug 1 '12 at 13:31
@Bart: right, I just found the same suggested edit; updated the answer. – Martijn Pieters Aug 1 '12 at 13:33

Such rejection can happen for two reasons I know of:

  1. User manually click "Improve" or "Edit" button when reviewing the suggested edit then untick the "this edit was helpful" checkbox.

  2. Other edit was made to the post and got merged with your suggestion, causing auto rejection. See this question for a good example.
