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

Since an answer being unaccepted is -15, I assume that 0 is for an upvote on your answer which was just removed / cancelled; why doesn't it show the question link when you expand the score though? I don't see the question's number on my audit page either.

The bug on StackOverflow

I did look at the "possible dupes", but none of them really answered my question and had more to do with up/downvotes on questions and not answers (which is what the rep. change in question was on).

If anyone has any ideas, please let me know, even if it's only a "you fail at reading comprehension", since that's entirely possible.


Ok, so I followed the FAQ's recommendation to add a bounty for this question since I really wanted more views and above all, just an answer or two. However, the full time allotted to the bounty expired and it got just a couple more views and still no answers. I still have the same issue.

Since I've now lost the privilege to start another bounty until I build it up again, the only way I can think of "bumping" this question in the meantime is to edit it.

I don't think it's a bug, more of a feature request as they probably didn't implement same mechanism for "unvoting" of posts like the one in place for unaccepting answers. – Shadow Wizard Nov 10 '11 at 9:48
@ShadowWizard: Thanks, I didn't think of that so I added the feature-request tag. – stealthyninja Nov 10 '11 at 9:51
up vote 0 down vote accepted

I got a downvote for an answer which I decided to remove and after doing a manual reputation recalc, I now have a similar 0 score, which has no link since the answer it would link to no longer exists. This is probably what happened with the other 0 scores during a system recalc after the author deleted the question.
