I understood that it is not a person. But once in a while pushes unanswered questions to the top etc.,

But who writes the code and maintains it for our main Hinduism site? Is it our own moderators or someone else?


They are Stack Exchange developers, not community moderators.

Visit the FAQ: Who is the Community user? and refer Meta Stack Exchange for further information or question-answers about community user.

Yes, it sometimes does network-wide corrections e.g. it once actively replaced http: with https:// when SE adopted network wide https and redirected all child meta traffic from meta.*.stackexchange.com to *.meta.stackexchange.com; recently it had been modifying posts for as switching to CommonMark.

Community user bumps questions to home page based on certain criteria:

The Community user will bump non-negatively scored, open questions every hour that have at least one answer scoring 0 and none scoring more than that.

  • Questions are picked randomly from the top-viewed questions with last activity more than 30 days ago.
  • Once a question is bumped, it will be ineligible for bumping for the next 120 days, unless it receives new activity after the last bump. (Bumping a question counts as new activity, so at a given time,questions bumped within the last 30 days are guaranteed not to be bumped.)
  • The maximum number of unanswered questions bumped per hour depends on the site: 4 per hour on Stack Overflow, 2 per hour on Super User and Server Fault, and 1 per hour on Meta Stack Exchange and all other sites.
  • Some sites have limits on how many auto-bumped questions can appear on the homepage. Once the limit is reached, no more questions will be bumped until one or more bumped questions disappears off the homepage.

Whenever you find question is edited by community user, you can check revisions to find out the reason why question is edited i.e some correction or bump.
