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

A question on seems to have had its text edited by a user with 1 reputation. What's going on?

He's got about 9000 in rep. – alex Apr 23 '10 at 6:45

The user has a lot more rep, but was subsequently suspended until next year so his rep has been artificially set to 1. If you're really interested in what happened, you can find a lot more info about him here on MSO.

Note that this can also happen if the user has enough rep at the time of editing, but is severely downvoted.
