I asked a question on SO in late March (unable to bind event to datetimepicker plugin). Today, a month and a half later, it received a downvote.
I don't like to ask questions. (That is, so far, my only question outside of meta.) I will only ask a question on SO as a last resort, when I think I've exhausted all my options. I clearly outlined what the problem was, what I had attempted, and showed code examples. When no one answered it initially, I posted a bounty and eventually received a very good answer.
Now, I suppose the question could be considered too localised (although it relates to a popular plugin and I'm sure others have run into this difficulty), so I'm willing to delete it for the sake of not losing my two reputation points.
However, I am concerned about the consequences of deleting the post. Will the user who answered the question lose 85 points awarded him (2 upvotes, selected, and bounty)? Will I lose points and/or badges?
Is the question poor quality and thus should be deleted? Or should I just live with the downvote and leave the question as is?
