Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

This question already has an answer here:

What does this user do? What is its role? I read the description in which it's specified that:

Own downvotes on spam/evil posts that get permanently deleted

What's the use of this?


How this process got Editor and Organizer badge?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Badges are awarded automatically. The Community user earned the Editor badge because it inserts the text "Possible duplicate of bla bla bla" whenever a question gets closed as duplicate. – alex Jun 2 '10 at 14:06

When you flag a post as offensive/spam, it generates a downvote on that post, but it isn't owned by you (it is owned by the community user), so you don't get the -1 rep hit associated with it

ok.. thanks for this explaination. Please check edit part. – Mohit Jain Jun 2 '10 at 14:03

With regard to Editor and Organizer badges, it's the Community user who automatically edits questions closed as duplicate to include a bar with links to duplicate topics in top of the question.

I'm however more interested how it got two Organizer badges.

I still don't know why, but all ♦ moderators got a second Organizer badge. See: How did I get a second Organizer badge on SO? – Bill the Lizard Jun 2 '10 at 14:22
