Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

Do you lose the 15 pts if someone later unaccepts your answer?

Yes you do lose points.

Yes, and unfortunately this is one of the instances where it's quite difficult to determine exactly which answer you lost the points for. The best way I know of is to keep a page open containing a list of your accepted answers (from the envelope page, for example), and compare it to the post-unaccepted status page.

Since September 2011, users are notified of unaccepts. – lockstep Jan 29 '12 at 12:52
