Lately I edited some questions to improve them and I got 2 reps per edit. Now 4 of them are gone.

When I edit a post I get 2 reps. When after that someone else edits the same post, do I lose those reps I got?

Did those questions get deleted? – Mysticial Apr 22 '13 at 15:41
I don't think so because in my reps it doesn't display removed at all. – HAS Apr 22 '13 at 15:48

No, additional edits following yours will not lose you the rep you gained.

The likely cause is that the posts you edited got removed and this is usually reflected in your profile under the reputation tab. See the below image:

Removed edit

One possible reason that you do not see removed entries is that you may not have ticked the option to show removed posts on the bottom of the page:

Show removed posts

Thanks for your fast reply, actually that might be the case, I don't know ... Yeah that sounds like a good reason! Thanks! – HAS Apr 22 '13 at 15:45
Um ... I've just taken a look at it and it nowhere says removed ... – HAS Apr 22 '13 at 15:47
That has happened me also in a few cases where the post was removed shortly after my edit was approved. – Ren Apr 22 '13 at 15:48
Ahhh that sounds plausible! All right, thank you very much! – HAS Apr 22 '13 at 15:50
There is another possibility as to why you don't see removed entries. I've updated my answer. – Ren Apr 22 '13 at 16:03
All right! Thanks and yeah that's exactly it! How could I oversee this box? Thank you! – HAS Apr 22 '13 at 16:06
