I logged in today and saw that 15 of my reputation points had vanished. When I opened the reputation tab, I noticed that even though at the top it showed -15, it didn't list exactly where or how my reputation went. Even the reputation counts for today and yesterday show nothing. Is this a bug of some sort?

Did you expand the "today" arrow? Might be simple unaccept event. – Shadow Wizard Apr 5 '12 at 11:03
Expanding the arrow doesn't show anything .. but checking the show removed posts box did. See Lix/ManishEarth's answer below. – Arnab Chakraborty Apr 5 '12 at 11:08
If you'll post what question it is someone with 10K+ rep can see why the answer/question got deleted if you like. :) – Shadow Wizard Apr 5 '12 at 11:11
It says here that it was voluntarily removed by the author. – Arnab Chakraborty Apr 5 '12 at 11:12
Weird - you can see the deleted post?? – Shadow Wizard Apr 5 '12 at 11:13
Nope, can't see the question. Can see the question title in my reputation history after checking the show-removed-posts box. When I click on it, it shows an error page saying "This question was voluntarily removed by its author." Why do you think it to be weird? – Arnab Chakraborty Apr 5 '12 at 11:15
Oh lol, forgot about that! Thought your answer was deleted for some reason that's all. :-) – Shadow Wizard Apr 5 '12 at 11:17
@Aki: Can you give a link? (I'm not a mod but maybe I can get one to help) – Manishearth Apr 5 '12 at 11:25
I thought you said it was how things were, question gets deleted, you lose rep associated with that question. How can a mod help? – Arnab Chakraborty Apr 5 '12 at 11:30

Most probably a post got deleted. Scroll down and check the "show removed posts" box.

So that means, if a post, with my answer as the accepted answer, get deleted (even voluntarily), I lose my rep for that question? – Arnab Chakraborty Apr 5 '12 at 11:06
@Aki: Yep. ALL upvotes/downvotes/rep is gone. Deleted answers lose their own rep; deleted questions destroy the rep of all answers as well. A deleted question is of the sort that you shouldn't have answered it in the first place (usually)--instead just flagged it for close/delete. – Manishearth Apr 5 '12 at 11:08
@Lix thanks for the freehand circle goodness! Cannot do from phone atm :/ – Manishearth Apr 5 '12 at 11:08
+1 for the "shouldn't have answered it in the first place" – Arnab Chakraborty Apr 5 '12 at 11:10
@Lix another show off - you could start below the 155 you know. :P – Shadow Wizard Apr 5 '12 at 11:12
@sha! You are really on my case today! No FHRC for you! :P – Lix Apr 5 '12 at 11:14
@Lix: I drag-dropped FHRC to a new tab (to Google) a moment before it struck me that it meant freehand RED circle (always heard it called FHC). Flood Hazard Research Center Who'd want THAT? :P – Manishearth Apr 5 '12 at 11:16
@Lix but you got my +1 - show off or not. :) – Shadow Wizard Apr 5 '12 at 11:16
but @sha - this is not my post ;) – Lix Apr 5 '12 at 11:17
@Lix oops! Blonde moment alert! – Shadow Wizard Apr 5 '12 at 11:18
@Lix: I ATE YOUR REP BWAHAHAAH – Manishearth Apr 5 '12 at 11:18
@man - hahaha - I don't choose the names :P I just continue the memes ;) – Lix Apr 5 '12 at 11:18
