In this particular answer of mine Community account made an edit - I always thought Community is a bot- account. It flipped the colour description of the functions wrongly - what is happening?

Needless to say human reviewers just approved the edit without checking it.

These edits are attributed to the Community ♦ user upon approval. They cannot suggest edits to tag wikis." $\endgroup$ Nov 18, 2019 at 15:32

The edit was suggested by an anonymous user, i.e. a user not logged in (usually because they don't have an account). If such an edit suggestion is approved, the edit is "credited" to Community♦.
