  • A response to your deleted question: I did not downvote your post. However, I think that your question is not clear enough to other users.

  • In particular: why a badge? It's not that well explained what the purpose or definition of the badge would be.

The Community user owns all suggested edits from anonymous users.

However, from your screenshot, it appears that the edit was done in 2017. Hence, it is likely part of the transition from HTTP to HTTPS. At that time, the Community user replaced all links in HTTP with HTTPS. This can be identified from the Revision History:

replaced http://stackoverflow.com/ with https://stackoverflow.com/

Furthermore, the Community user also assisted in editing posts during the migration to CommonMark this year.

    @noor The Community user isn't an actual person; it's a bot so it does not edit posts itself. When anonymous users edit, the edit is simply credited to the Community user. The Community also does maintenance work (examples listed in my answer).
