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
