Why did I just lose 15 reputation?

Yesterday I had 1522 points I woke up this morning to find that I had an upvote and my answer was chosen as the right answer for this question

Adding a class to Html.MenuItem's

my profile shows that I got 25 points, but now my reputation is 1532

I don't see any downvotes either! and I am not at the 200 limit per day

This has happened before, so I figured I should ask maybe there is something I am missing.

Where did my other 15 points go?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

200 limit per day? – TryTryAgain Jan 5 '12 at 14:47
@TryTryAgain I have a vague understanding that there is a daily cap on reputation set to 200 a day, but one day I got >200 so I don't know if it's being enforced! – Bassam Mehanni Jan 5 '12 at 14:50
There are exceptions to the 200 rep/day limit, such as bounties. – CodeWarrior Jan 5 '12 at 14:58
@CodeWarrior yeah.. but that day I didn't get any bounty.. maybe it was because it was my first time to get >200 so they let it slide :D – Bassam Mehanni Jan 5 '12 at 15:01
There are a number of exceptions. – CodeWarrior Jan 5 '12 at 15:04
@CodeWarrior thanks, didn't know that correct answers don't count that's why I was able to get more than 200 – Bassam Mehanni Jan 5 '12 at 15:08

When missing 15 points that is often some other question where the OP changed his mind and selected another answer.

As you then no longer have any connection to that question, it will not show up on your a Reputation pane.

as of this moment, my answer is still marked as the right answer, and there was never another answer, unless this has happened on a different question while I was sleeping my answer was chosen and my answer was de-accepted on a different question, what are the odds?! – Bassam Mehanni Jan 5 '12 at 14:38
Guess what .. it's exactly what happened.. I'll select your answer as soon as the system let me – Bassam Mehanni Jan 5 '12 at 14:40
