Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Also, "Today" says "-15" while "Week" says "-5", how is that possible?

Don't the today and week values say negative 15 and 5, respectively? – DMA57361 Sep 1 '11 at 12:49
unaccpets and unaccept/accepts wreak havoc see my post earlier this week – waffles Sep 1 '11 at 12:52
What waffles said. Someone unaccepted one of your answers. No, you can't know which one. No, it won't be implemented as a feature any time soon. Yes, this is very annoying. :) – dlev Sep 1 '11 at 12:54
Here's the link for your convenience: Why is my reputation total for today off by 15 points? – Hendrik Vogt Sep 1 '11 at 12:56

Sometime it takes a bit for it to show the new day on the reputation page.

It looks like you lost 15 reputation today. This is almost certainly because either:

  • An old, accepted answer of yours got unaccepted, which is possible if it was edited after it was accepted Edit: That's for voting, not accepting.

  • An old, accepted answer of yours got deleted, either directly or through the question getting deleted (Note: ChrisF says this wouldn't show up at all, so it's probably the other.)

You gain 10 rep two days ago, adding up to a total of -5 rep for the week.

It's the latter. Rep loss from deletes doesn't show at all. – ChrisF Sep 1 '11 at 12:59
Thanks, added that. – agf Sep 1 '11 at 13:01
which is possible if it was edited after it was accepted: this is untrue. You're confusing with the ability to remove votes. An answer can always be unaccepted, edited or not. In this particular case, apparently someone else has posted a much clearer and better answer on the question and the OP changed the accept. This is >90% of the reasons for the unaccept. – BalusC Sep 1 '11 at 13:26
@Chichiray Really? I was under the impression it couldn't be changed? I've seen comments like "man, now I wish I'd waited longer to accept an answer" – agf Sep 1 '11 at 13:27
That's just caused by the same ignorance :) (have never seen them though) – BalusC Sep 1 '11 at 13:28
