Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

My reputation page on Programmers reports the following entries.


They are referring to questions that have been deleted, and for which the reputation I gained for accepting an answer has been removed. The links take to the two accepted answers, which are visible only to 10k users.

In the same page, I notice the following events.


I would have though these entries were reporting reputation I gained for accepting answers in now deleted questions, but they are described differently from the previous ones. I take the reputation lose is caused by something that has been removed, but I cannot understand what the exact reason is. I lose 2 points when I get down-voted, but when the post is deleted, I should eventually get back those two points.

What events are described in those entries?

up vote 3 down vote accepted

They mean different things:

  • unaccept: the accept vote was retracted
  • removed: the post itself was deleted

"removed" is -2 here because 2 rep was all that post had on it relating to might be 12 or 22 in other cases for example.

Does that include also the reputation I gain for suggesting an edit that is approved? That is the only +2 I can think of, and that I could gain from a post for a question that is not mine. – kiamlaluno Mar 6 '12 at 16:33
@kiamlaluno You could also get +2 for accepting an answer (although I'm sure you'd notice if an answer you'd accepted was deleted), or from upvotes when you are just shy of the rep cap. – yoozer8 Aug 22 '12 at 21:37
