Something went awry in the reputation calculation.
I want my 10 points back! I'd like to have an explanation for the inconsistency.
Yesterday, I finished the day at
Today, I got another six upvotes (so far), and lost 20 reputation due to two users being removed:
But, in the arithmetic systems I'm used to,
89938 + 40 = 89978
so 10 points went AWOL, and I wondered why. It seems that the inconsistency is in the calculation for Friday. Originally, it was computed as 245, but now I see
a total of 21 upvotes and three accepts. One answer received an upvote before I deleted it (OP added missing parentheses to the code, so the answer became inapplicable) and appears both with the
+10 upvote and the
-10 removed. Fine. That used to mean that in total that answer would be irrelevant for the reputation cap, but in this case, apparently not so, since there is one upvote that didn't earn any reputation on that day.
Have the rules changed? Is it now "delete an upvoted answer and you can't make up for it"?
Or what went wrong here?
