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

I've been deleting quite a few of my own questions on Area 51 when I realised they weren't good questions. Sometimes they were heavily voted but even so, the question wasn't actually a good one. I've just deleted a question on this proposal which had seven votes, but from the discussion I was seeing under the question, it looked like a bad question (i.e. something which wasn't going to attract experts). I've done this several times now but don't seem to see a hit on the reputation. Just wondering why the reputation doesn't go down along with the deleted question.

Reputation isn't recalculated when you delete a post.

If you run the reputation report - - you'll see your new correct reputation.

If you want to see the correct value on the site then you'll have to request a recalculation from the team.

I don't need it to be recalculated. I worked at it in order to get 1,000 points in order to edit the mistakes etc. in other people's proposals and question, but I can't see anything I want above 1,000 points. – delete Jun 30 '10 at 13:57
