For several weeks I have lost reputation points on the night between Friday and Saturday without explanation.

Two weeks ago I lost 2 points, last week I lost 4 points and last night I lost 4 points.

The problem is not losing points, but is not knowing why.

  • Is an edit that has been deleted?
  • Is there a bug?
  • There is a rule that I do not know?
  • Someone has a grudge against me?
  • Is there a curse of on Friday night?

An idea of ​​future suggestion (if it is not a bug) is to show why I lost these points.

The question may have already been asked, but I have not found them.

do you happen to post one or two bad question that I manage to see each friday night? – Jan Dvorak May 10 '14 at 12:44
Did you check the "show removed posts" checkbox at the bottom of your reputation page in your profile? – Mat May 10 '14 at 12:46
Don't be silly. There is no such thing as a curse. – BoltClock's a Unicorn May 10 '14 at 12:48
What transformed you into a Unicorn then, @BoltClock? – Mat May 10 '14 at 12:49
@Mat: Magic. Which is definitely not the same thing as a curse. – BoltClock's a Unicorn May 10 '14 at 12:53
That's what the wizards want you to believe, @BoltClock. Don't fall in their trap. – Mat May 10 '14 at 12:54
Thank you to you. It was the checkbox "show removed posts" that I had not checked. shame on me. :) And of course, the "curse" was a joke. :D – doydoy44 May 10 '14 at 14:35

As far as I can tell you are losing some score as questions with low views, score and no answer get automatically deleted by a batch job.

You seem to have edited a number of them, which of course gave you +2 rep. As the questions get deleted so goes the rep bonus.

Unfortunately, you can't see the questions because they are deleted and you need more reputation.

But if 'show removed posts' is checked, the OP would still see entries in their reputation history. – Martijn Pieters May 10 '14 at 13:22
Thanks for this answer, I did not know the existence of this batch job (although I suspected seeing the periodicity). And I have not checked the checkbox "show removed post" – doydoy44 May 10 '14 at 14:39
That checkbox only applies to your own posts, @doy. You won't see other people's posts that you edited. – Arjan May 10 '14 at 19:23
@Arjan: Thanks for this precision. – doydoy44 May 10 '14 at 20:50
