Hello everybody, I am new to SO. I ask a question and didn't get an good answer for a week. Now, to maintain my accept rate, I answer it myself and I accept that answer. Next day I saw a loss of 15 reputation. Why did this happen? There may be some other reason, but I think nothing will decrease reputation by 15. I hadn't set bounty on my question.
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
You don't lose or gain reputation from accepting own answers.
Probably, you got 2 downvotes in this post, which is -4 and may be someone revoked upvote on your answer, which will be -10, so most likely you lost -14 in total, if you remember you had 90+ the other day.
