How does “Reputation” work? – Arjan Apr 3 '10 at 8:09
AWAN, you can't have negative reputation, unless you piss off user 1 :) – Nick Dandoulakis Apr 3 '10 at 8:24

You will never go below one. But predicting your next question: Removing a downvote adds reputation that wasn’t there.

Then why it shows minus votes on my questions/answers. It should also not go to minus. If i am downvoted 200 times without 1 upvote then how can I know that how many up-votes are required to get my 1+ reputation. – AWAN Apr 3 '10 at 8:03
@AWAN, why not? People's reputation can't go below 1. The plus/minus vote count for posts can. After getting 200 downvotes your reputation will still be 1, and you need just a single upvote for a question to gain 5 points and go to 6 (or to gain 10 on Meta, to get to 11), or a single upvote for an answer to gain 10 and go to 11 -- see the link I predicted you needed... – Arjan Apr 3 '10 at 8:16

Nothing, you stay at 1. If you get an Upvote, I think the downvote then applies to only give you +8/+3
