Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

So yesterday while I was in the midst of answering some questions on SO, I mysteriously lost two reps points. I checked my rep page and it didn't show any downvotes, etc...so I waited to see if anything would change with the recalc that takes place.

Nothing changed today, still missing the two points but I cannot figure out where I lost them from especially since there is no record that I can see.

It was weird because I got an upvote on an answer but then seemed to lose two rep points out of nowhere. I have looked on meta and saw the other questions about this possible behavior that is partly why I waited to post but I cannot see any reason why I lost the rep.

The rep was lost around this time frame yesterday:

Did you unaccept an answer? –  U2744 SNOWFLAKE Jun 1 '12 at 1:17
nope, I didn't. –  bluefeet Jun 1 '12 at 1:18
I applaud freehand drawings, but you call this a circle? On an equally serious note: Did you check show removed posts on your reputation page? –  Dennis Jun 1 '12 at 1:22
@Dennis yes I checked the removed posts and it doesn't show anything unusual either, I tried checking everything before wasting people's time by posting this on meta. I know its not a circle, I am obviously not very good at drawing without a mouse. I suck at it. –  bluefeet Jun 1 '12 at 1:23
Still better than the non-freehand alternative. Resorting to wild guessing: Maybe a post of yours with a single downvote got undeleted. That doesn't show up in the reputation history (it just removes the removed event). –  Dennis Jun 1 '12 at 1:31
@Dennis Hmm, not sure. I am def stumped. –  bluefeet Jun 1 '12 at 1:34
@minitech: 10 minutes for 2 reputation, eh? –  animuson Jun 1 '12 at 2:49
@animuson: I saw a freehand circle in distress. –  U2744 SNOWFLAKE Jun 1 '12 at 2:50
@minitech what happened to my horrible circle??? I was proud of that terrible freehand drawing. :) –  bluefeet Jun 1 '12 at 2:54
What was your rep before & after the lost 2 points? –  Emmett Jun 1 '12 at 18:48
@Emmett I don't know the exact amount but the issue came up when I was answering this question stackoverflow.com/questions/10822912/… –  bluefeet Jun 1 '12 at 18:51
I notice this behavior a lot, myself. It's happened more than once and happens quite often (right now, I think it happens at every up vote on any of my posts) –  inspectorG4dget Oct 15 '12 at 2:24
