The question Recent Linux USB exploits has been edited by Community♦. According to the description on the user page that is a bot.

The edit is not a organizational one, but adds real content. It's obvious that this cannot be done by a computer program.

  • @Graham - see, THAT kind of CAPTCHA I would get behind! Even if it blocks me once in a while.... :$ – AviD May 22 '11 at 12:42

I updated Community's user page to say that it "Own edits made by anonymous contributors to the site".

    @JeffAtwood, this should be done standard, please... This is not the first site where this issue comes up. – AviD May 22 '11 at 12:41
  • ah, if I'd known we could do that I would have. (Missed that snippet in pro-tem mod training:-) – Rory Alsop May 22 '11 at 21:02

    Good idea. It seems to me that it also owns edits that needed approval, and were modified by the approver, so I suggest adding that case also. – nealmcb May 24 '11 at 19:18

I think Community also takes ownership for edits by anonymous suggestions as well. I saw that proposed edit come through and at that point it was tagged anonymous-user.

    ah, good. But the user page of Community should mention that. – Hendrik Brummermann May 22 '11 at 9:19
  • Yeah- I honestly wouldn't have known if the edit hadn't appeared on my review queue:-) I'll have a look on the main meta page at meta.so when I'm back in print of a computer and post up more info here. – Rory Alsop May 22 '11 at 9:28
