Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

So, what’s happening to my reputation? How do I report something fishy?

Some people get very upset about their reputation loss. I just helped moving question of one of them off stackoverflow.com and now being downvoted a lot. Well, not much damage is going to be done as the guy doesn't have much rep left but anyway, but where's the script I heard are there to prevent such kind of behaviors?

If a single person has downvoted you more than 5 times in a single day, the abnormalities script, when ran, will pick up on it and reverse those votes.

This script runs at least once a day, so give it 24 hours and you'll be fine.

@Chacha: Do you have inside knowledge of the magic number? I wasn't aware that it had been revealed. – dmckee Mar 22 '10 at 2:50

@dmckee: you can try it on stack exchange – Andreas Bonini Mar 22 '10 at 3:42
    
Looks like boundaries wasn't tested that well, downvotes got deleted even though there was just 5 of them. – vava Mar 22 '10 at 10:04
    
@vava, a moderator might have read this post and fixed it – Lance Roberts Mar 23 '10 at 19:59
