I got my post deleted and lost 15 reputation for providing just a link in my answer, why is it that I don't get my reputation back once I undelete my post?

Which post are we talking about? – Bill the Lizard Dec 17 '12 at 17:39
@BilltheLizard this one – X.Jacobs Dec 17 '12 at 17:41
Was this maybe just a caching issue? I see the +15 in your reputation timeline for this now. – Bill the Lizard Dec 17 '12 at 17:44
@BilltheLizard don't think so, my answer got accepted and upvoted, still +15 missing – X.Jacobs Dec 17 '12 at 17:46
@X.Jacobs: I see the +15 in on your rep tab right now. – Martijn Pieters Dec 17 '12 at 17:47
@MartijnPieters yes, +15 for getting my answer accepted... the same answer that was once deleted – X.Jacobs Dec 17 '12 at 17:48
@X.Jacobs: So, you never lost the rep now. What else is wrong then? If you still fear you lost 15 points and the tally is not correct, check that nothing else was deleted in the meantime, and head to http;// and hit the 'reputation recalc' button at the bottom of that page. If anything is skewed, that will right it. If you still don't see any change, then you must've miscalculated somewhere. – Martijn Pieters Dec 17 '12 at 17:49
@MartijnPieters I have -15: got deleted - 15; got upvoted + 10; got accepted + 15; got undeleted ??? – X.Jacobs Dec 17 '12 at 17:52
Are you saying you lost -15 twice? You probably misunderstand something. Screenshot? – Martijn Pieters Dec 17 '12 at 17:53
no no, just once :) – X.Jacobs Dec 17 '12 at 17:53
checked http;//, can't see -15 anywhere, either in my reputation tab – X.Jacobs Dec 17 '12 at 17:59
up vote 3 down vote accepted

An accept +15 followed by a -15 in the same day is a vote and reversal, they are cancelled out and not presented in the reputation view to avoid noise issues from someone spamming the vote buttons.

the problem is that I did not get my rep back... i had 643, got notified by stackapplet of -15 = 628, edit post, undelete, get upvoted + 10 = 638, get accepted as answer + 15 = 653... i should have 668! – X.Jacobs Dec 17 '12 at 18:07
Your reputation is correct, what you're not taking into account is that this answer was also unaccepted. – Nick Craver Dec 17 '12 at 18:10
