Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

Actually I want to see that what will be the effect on my "1" reputation when someone down vote me :)

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
All your votes are belong to us. +1. DON'T MAKE ME FAVORITE IT TOO ... – Tim Post Apr 4 '10 at 7:36
up vote 2 down vote accepted

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
