i recently answered a question and got upvoted for the answer. But the question was deleted later due to question being too generic. Then after a few minutes, i noticed that my reputation became the same as before when i got upvoted for it. Is this because the question was deleted? In such a case will the reputation earned be lost or was it maybe for some other reason that i overlooked??
