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

If I accept any answer which got down votes, does my reputation goes down also? Or is there no change?

Or still the same way by getting 2 points for accepting it?

up vote 12 down vote accepted

You get 2 points from accepting an answer (unless it's your own answer of course) regardless of the score the answer has.

Though it does seem odd to be accepting a negatively scored answer.

then i can accept this answer sure tension – Tahmina Jul 2 '12 at 10:25
Sometimes people prefer the easy and "less correct" way so they accept answer that directly answer their need but does not show good practice hence downvoted. Saw it happen many times. When others are looking in the answers, they should consider using the highest voted answers instead so it's all good I guess. @Tahmina any specific reason for asking this, or just curious? – Shadow Wizard Jul 2 '12 at 11:42
