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

On my reputation, it says reputation for today is -2...but I can't find what would have caused that, and I have a total history of 0 down votes, so I don't even know how I could have gotten -2. If I lost an upvote, that should be -5.

@jbyrd - Because it's been deleted. If you do a reputation recalculation - on the \reputation page - you'll get the 2 points back. However, you will probably lose more due to other deleted posts where you were up-voted. – ChrisF Oct 3 '11 at 20:42
Aha - didn't know about the \reputation page - thanks! In my case, I gained 6 points by triggering a recalc. – jbyrd Oct 4 '11 at 0:17
