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

How do I read the history of my reputation?

I downvoted a question and a few hours later, can see the following in my rep history (when Show removed posts is enabled)...

+1   17:25  removed What's the demonym for people who use Stack Exchange or Stack Overflow?
-1   16:46  downvoted   What's the demonym for people who use Stack Exchange or Stack Overflow?

I didn't un-downvote and the question is still active. Can someone please explain what the removed entry relates to? The question is still active but locked so I can't re-downvote...

Any explanation greatly appreciated. Clearly this is a mechanism I'm not familiar with.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You downvoted a post and that post is now deleted – Lorem Ipsum Oct 1 '12 at 0:13

The question is still active, but there were several answers by the OP on that post that have been deleted. It appears you must have downvoted one of those.

I see. Thank you. Presumably if I had 10k I'd be able to see what I'd downvoted, I'll accept ASAP – Basic Oct 1 '12 at 0:16
