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 lost reputation when a question was removed. I understand that much. But how is it possible that 5 questions were removed at precisely the same time 13:11?

It seems that the periodic old question deleter has run about 14 hours ago.

You had 5 accepted suggested edits on questions that were deleted.

Here's one of the questions (10k link):

enter image description here

When a post is deleted, all rep gained/lost on it (with a few exceptions) are reverted. Since you gained +2 rep on each of these edits, they were reverted when the questions were deleted.

Thanks i got it. – Shree Feb 24 '13 at 4:19
Huh... I did not know that you lost rep obtained from suggested edits when the post got deleted. Is this new? – Lorem Ipsum Feb 24 '13 at 6:20
@LoremIpsum It's always been like that. When a post is deleted. All rep that is attached to that post is gone. (with a few minor exceptions) – Mysticial Feb 24 '13 at 6:21
@LoremIpsum Quoting this FAQ answer, where an edit added the following in Feb 2011: "...Like any other reputation, the +2 is deleted if the edited post is ever deleted." – Asad Saeeduddin Feb 24 '13 at 7:00
@Asad Oh wow... never knew. I guess I've never noticed it because I've only made 5 suggested edits in all and most of them to tag wikis. Thanks for the link! – Lorem Ipsum Feb 24 '13 at 15:06
