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

I have read the other threads about "User was removed", in particular what-does-user-was-removed-mean-and-why-did-my-reputation-change-because-of-it but I'm not sure this was addressed anywhere in detail:

I would appreciate if someone could give an accurate account of everything I may lose (or win) after someone's account has been removed.

A couple days ago, I answered three questions from a rather feisty user. After her account was deleted today, I am under the impression that I lost more than just the points she had awarded me. Including:

  • the rep points from other users' up-votes on my answers to the removed user's questions (please confirm)
  • in my summary, it looks as if I never answered her three questions

Anything else? Thank you.

is your answer count decreased by 3 ? – Lucifer Jul 19 '12 at 3:30
@Lucifer - truly ridiculous editing. You are changing content and writing style why? Because you don't like the contraction 'I'm"? Geez – Will Tower Jul 19 '12 at 3:35
I agree, this is insane. "User was removed" - thats it? Everything else is detailed to the Nth degree but for some has-to-be-interesting-reason, "User was removed" is all we're told? We cant even know the question(s)/answer(s)? The user(s)? Nothing else? Just "User was removed". Wow. Talk about raising red flags....... – SmartMethod Aug 16 '12 at 18:59
I love that after a year, this is still happening. Come on Stack, one of the biggest tech forums on the net should not penalise it's active community because of users being removed. – QBDSolutions Feb 10 '14 at 17:13
