Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I seem to have gained one reputation point on this question, for no apparent reason:

NSOperation vs Grand Central Dispatch

Is this a bug?

I assume you downvoted a question on that post – psubsee2003 Sep 22 '13 at 20:55

...which was probably this answer: stackoverflow.com/a/10373781/19679 that was deleted two days ago. – Brad Larson Sep 22 '13 at 20:57

Yes. It's beacause you have downvoted on th post and that post has been removed meta.stackexchange.com/questions/7237/how-does-reputation-work – Sachin Sep 22 '13 at 20:57

Weird that it didn't record that in your reputation history... – animuson Sep 22 '13 at 20:59
    
Thanks, possibly I did downvote an answer on that question from the review queue, but as @animuson says, it's not appearing on my rep history. – Luke Girvin Sep 22 '13 at 21:03
    
@Luke Do you have "show removed posts" enabled at the bottom? Maybe it just doesn't show it to moderators since it involved a downvote. – animuson Sep 22 '13 at 21:06
    
@animuson: are deletion 'vote rebalancing' entries visible to mods normally? If so, do mods have an option to toggle the 'show removed posts' checkbox too? – Martijn Pieters Sep 22 '13 at 21:23

@Martijn I have a hunch that the downvoted and undownvoted events are hidden from moderators to preserve user anonymity. Other removal and reversal events are normally shown. And moderators only get that show/hide option on their own profiles. I'm not sure if it affects other profiles, though. I always have it on. – animuson Sep 22 '13 at 21:30
    
@psubsee2003 - I assume he downvoted an answer and not a question on that post. :) – hims056 Sep 23 '13 at 4:25
    
@animuson - yes, I have the 'show removed posts' box checked. – Luke Girvin Sep 23 '13 at 8:03
up vote 10 down vote accepted

The only thing I can think of that would cause such a rep change would be that you had previously downvoted an answer on the question, which would have cost 1 rep.

When an answer is deleted, all points gained or lost by users on it are refunded - in this case, you lost 1 rep on it by down voting, and the +1 is your refund.
