The Community♦'s profile page's "About Me" currently states:

Hi, I'm not really a person.

I'm a background process that helps keep this site clean!

I do things like

  • Randomly poke old unanswered questions every hour so they get some attention
  • Own community questions and answers so nobody gets unnecessary reputation from them
  • Own downvotes on spam/evil posts that get permanently deleted
  • Own suggested edits from anonymous users

Can we add more detail in it? Such as:

  • Reject suggested edits which may involves edit conflict
  • Own Community Moderator Election

  • The "Own Community Moderator Election" is too minor. As for "Reject suggested edits which may involves edit conflict" it might fit, but better explain it better in the rejection itself. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Jul 3 '13 at 6:10
  • @AsheeshR Maybe "summon"? I can't find a better word. (I'm not a nature English user) – johnchen902 Jul 3 '13 at 6:10
  • Own Community Moderator Election
  • Reject suggested edits which may involves edit conflict
  • Own tag wikis and privilege wikis
  • Flag smelly stuff for moderators and/or 10k users
  • Own certain meta posts
  • Become the second acceptance vote on an edited suggested edit
  • Own bounties from deleted users
  • Lock and delete spam posts
  • Lock migrated posts and rejected migrations
  • Own FAQ and about wikis


If we're going to get that specific, then we can probably fill a page or two worth of Community functions.

A better fix would be to improve the corresponding meta post and link to it on the profile

  • I was about to link to that meta post before realizing you already linked to it. Why don't you post this answer there? – Michael Mrozek Jul 3 '13 at 6:22
  • @MichaelMrozek On it :) [done] – Manishearth Jul 3 '13 at 6:24
  • @Manishearth Just curious, who have privileges to edit Community♦'s profile? – johnchen902 Jul 3 '13 at 11:18
  • @johnchen902 Mods do (we can copy to all SE accounts too), but I bet (a) We're not allowed to, and (b) it's better that a dev changes the text because we may break something. – Manishearth Jul 3 '13 at 11:21
