What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 130 Stack Exchange communities.

This was never an issue before, but now I notice it now that I have many answers accepted as the "accepted answer". We receive +15 rep for an acceptance. We receive notification in our reputation tab about "acc +15". However, when someone de-selects the answer, our rep decreases accordingly, but we never receive any notification on which question changed. I just wanted to know which question changed is all. Am I not seeing this somewhere or does this not exist yet?

This was implemented last night, you'll now see unaccepts in your reputation history (in the user profile).

Can you see exactly what answer was unselected? –  Macro Jul 24 '12 at 1:36
    
@Macro - you get a link to the answer (unless it was totally deleted along with the question, in which case you see the title but not a link...unless you have 10k rep and can see it). –  Nick Craver Jul 24 '12 at 1:37

I think it makes sense that you don't get notification because the deselection is actually wiping out the vote record in the DB.

Why the downvote on this one? This is a good technical reason if true. Is it not true? –  Troggy Aug 20 '09 at 22:00
    
LOL, this is the second time I've gotten a random downvote on a factually correct answer. –  TheTXI Aug 20 '09 at 22:40

Implementation should follow specifications, not the other way around. –  Marc-André Lafortune Jul 7 '11 at 17:40

No, you don't see it. You don't see any notification for revocation of upvotes or downvotes either. If the notification was in the time window you've speficied, it simply vanishes.
