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.

I believe the edit was anonymous and when it got accepted, it's done by the Community User. – HoLyVieR Jul 11 '11 at 0:56

Anonymous edits are owned by the Community user, that's what you're seeing here.
