"Community" is not a real user. Several actions that are taken automatically by the system are shown as being done by the "Community" user, including this action of occasionally touching old questions to put them on the homepage.

    Izzy, flags like this one don't appear on mobile. Something else to go and winge about to the Devs, as primarily-mobile users like myself have no idea what is going on when flags start being set.

  • @DanBrown It seems that there's no real interest in updating the Android SE app, though.

  • @DanBrown Quite. Were it open source, most of these problems could've already been addressed.

  • @DeathMaskSalesman Yeah, true. Who knows, maybe we could ask nicely for that? ;)

  • @Hmmm, true. I'll see what I can dig up in a bit, though this is for the mobile site, not the app. Is it the same issue there then?

  • Hmmm might be interested in knowing that this issue occurs in the app as well. #D
