Just curious. I marked a question as a duplicate an hour or so ago, and came back later to see if it had indeed been closed. It had, and I expected to see a list of names after mine, or at least one more name besides mine, i.e. a moderator.

Instead what it said was "marked as duplicate by tcrosley, Community"

What does Community mean in this context? I've never seen that before.

I know that Community magically brings back unanswered questions to the active list every so often, and she (somehow seems like a she) "owns" Community Wiki answers. Not sure what else her superpowers are.

A (new) feature is that if you suggest that a question is a duplicate, the original asker can agree with you and the question will be closed immediately (as a duplicate).
