On some websites like Stack Overflow the Community account is there on nearly every bad question. But seeing it here is a truly rare sight. Makes me wonder that it is really a robot!

    $\begingroup$ Probably because the community (humans) are doing a better job than the community (a background process). $\endgroup$

The Community account is automated scripting. Community will bump old questions, delete questions meeting certain criteria, will show up as the editing user for anonymous edits and in a few other scenarios.

You see that user less here because:

  • lower question volume
  • less anonymous editing
  • less need for cleanup deletions
  • fewer unanswered questions needing bumps

For more information on what community does and can do, see the main meta site.
