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

Also, what all badges would it have? Yes, I know the Community user isn't a person, but I think it would be interesting to see anyway.

EDIT: Anthony Pegram found his profile:, but I'm still wondering about all the Community question and answer votes.

I edited Community Wiki -> Community user, because CW is a type of post, not a user, but I'm still not 100% sure that's what you meant. – waiwai933 Jun 18 '11 at 4:06
@waiwai933, Well, I mean if it were a regular user, how much rep would it have from votes on its questions and answers. – PengOne Jun 18 '11 at 4:08
408. I don't know about badges, but Community sure is a hater. – Anthony Pegram Jun 18 '11 at 4:12
@Anthony: Hilarious! But how does Community vote? – PengOne Jun 18 '11 at 4:13
"Negatively." Oh, you probably meant the mechanism. – Anthony Pegram Jun 18 '11 at 4:14

Community is a stellar user, currently with 410 reputation points. Community has also managed to earn a staggering 15 badges, including:

  • Deputy,
  • Citizen Patrol,
  • Investor,
  • Yearling (x2!),
  • Tag Editor,
  • Electorate,
  • Supporter,
  • Strunk & White,
  • Civic Duty,
  • Critic (boy, is he ever),
  • Beta,
  • Autobiographer,
  • Organizer,
  • Editor

A round of apple sauce for Community.

Community is also active on meta:

Here he only has a reputation of 1, but he still has 12 badges:

  • Organizer
  • Deputy
  • Investor
  • Tag Editor
  • Citizen Patrol
  • Strunk & White
  • Civic Duty
  • Supporter
  • Taxonomist
  • Critic
  • Autobiographer
  • Editor

According to Community's own profile:

Own downvotes on spam/evil posts that get permanently deleted

so this is where some of the votes come from.

The reason Community has such a low reputation on meta is because it pays for bounties on community wiki questions. It recently "paid out" 300 points on May 6, 2011. Like ordinary users, Community cannot have a zero or negative reputation so it shows as 1.
