I have on my profile on StackOverflow (in Reputation section) this:

Oct 8
-25  12:08  removed I need to create a GUI that will launch external applications using Visual Studio 2010

As for me this is weird, because:

  1. I haven't used Windows for ~6 months
  2. Even when I used Windows, I used VS 2008 only (I installed VS 2010, but I hated it)
  3. I wasn't even using internet this day, had really important task to do.

So my question is, what is that?

Also don't just post an answer that's just a bunch of links with zero explanation. If someone flagged an answer like that as "not an answer," I would have deleted it. – NullUserException อ_อ Oct 22 '12 at 17:44

This question was deleted. The reputation you gained from posting an answer is reversed since the question was deleted.


So it's not really negative reputation (in the same sense as downvotes), it's just StackOverflow reclaiming points awarded for a question deemed inappropriate.

True, just note that if post is more than 60 days old and has score of +3 or more, the user will keep the reputation gained from it. – Shadow Wizard Oct 22 '12 at 18:27
