After the suspension of my account from Super User, I noticed that my reputation was gone.

What are the side-effects of being 'boxed' or suspended?

Hi Joe. After the suspension period (typically one week) your rep will be recalculated. So you're only temporarily at 1 rep. For more info, see A day in the penalty box.

I must say that playing a Godwin right there in your question is not such a good idea. You may want to remove that remark and relax a bit. It's not the end of the word. (Oh, and may I suggest a spelling and grammar checker?)

Consider emailing if you want personal feedback on your penalty.

i was very sad before your answer . now i am so happy :-) – joe Oct 25 '09 at 20:00
@joe: good to hear that, but perhaps you shouldn't feel too good about the situation. It should feel a bit like punishment after all :) – Stephan202 Oct 25 '09 at 20:04
stephan, this is not a Godwin case, look at joe's prev question. – Henk Holterman Oct 25 '09 at 22:30
@Henk: I missed that one, I see. "Interesting" question. For future reference, the link is… – Stephan202 Oct 25 '09 at 23:12

Call me slow, but none of your linked accounts are currently suspended... do you have others?

Anyway; suspension:

  • prevents posting, editing, etc
  • prevents commenting (although it didn't once)
  • prevents you gaining rep for the duration
  • causes a recalc when the suspension ends

The suspension must have been lifted in the past fifteen minutes... when I looked he was indeed at 1 rep. – Stephan202 Oct 25 '09 at 20:14
i have completed my suspension now today only ;) – joe Oct 25 '09 at 21:34
