There are some empty posts from the Community user in its activity history:

Empty posts

What are those? If it's something deleted should it be marked appropriately instead of leaving the rows blank?

I can answer what those are: they're orphan wikis. So this is perhaps another variation of Orphaned tag wiki edits have broken activity entries.

It turns out you can find the post IDs via the browser tools:

and navigating to e.g. https://meta.stackexchange.com/posts/359539/revisions will confirm:

You can even try to edit them (for science). It looks like this suggested edit created the post (found with SEDE).

The posts are not deleted (and even continue to give +2 reputation for suggested edits, IIRC). The problem seems not limited to Community, see e.g. this page on my profile – but you noticed that a couple of years ago already.

  • I suppose that they were created when somebody suggested an edit and it was rejected. For example, trying the id from your post leads to this suggested edit. A similar situation as here: Why wasn't this tag removed - despite having single occurrence?

  • Actually, the suggested edits page - the problem was that it was already selected for me. I've edited the link. In my case, the suggested edit was approved.

  • @Luuklag thanks, but in case of Glorfindel's profile I can unfold the item to see the content. Sep 2 at 8:02

    @αλεχολυτ I can do the same on one of the items from community. I guess the difference will be between the suggested edit being accepted or declined. See the screenshot here.

    @Luuklag actually, that was my science :)

    Wow, you found my old post "Asked 4 years, 9 months ago", so a couple of couple of years! Sep 2 at 8:19
