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
  • What happens with your rep if you delete a question that was closed previously?

  • Do you lose rep points?

I deleted a question that I asked in Unix & Linux that was downvoted (-2), and I regained +4 rep. But I deleted a post that was closed, and I think I lost about 2 points.

Why is that?

There is a threshold. If a post is deleted that has more than 3 upvotes and has been visible for more than 60 days, there is no change in reputation. Else there is.

Also, deleting of community wiki posts have no effect on reputation.
