I realized that I have less reputation (in SO) then when I looked before. I figured that someone must have withdrawn his up-vote but I am not sure. Am I right with this theory and how could I track that? (See what question the vote got withdrawn on?)

If you are only talking about 10 or 20 points then see Show rep lost or gained from rescinded votes which would make this question a duplicate. – ChrisF Nov 25 '10 at 12:41
@Jon: 5 points only. – hol Nov 26 '10 at 7:16
Most likely a rescinded question upvote then. – Jon Seigel Nov 26 '10 at 23:02
Yes and this is not visible. I tested it out with two users. – hol Nov 26 '10 at 23:10

If the reputation loss is unexpected, large (>50) and there is no trace in your profile. Its probably due to a rep recalculation, or the removal of suspicious votes. See also Over 400 reputation lost overnight.

Smaller changes are probably due to vote or acceptance withdrawal.

Thanks for the answer, but where can I see the vote withdrawels? – hol Nov 25 '10 at 12:41
@Jürgen Hollfelder: Either click the envelope at the top of screen and play with the time filters, or go to stackoverflow.com/reputation (less pretty, more comprehensive) – Piskvor Nov 25 '10 at 13:29
Ok. I tried it. Removed upvotes are not logged. I created a second user. Gave him an upvote on an answer. I could see the upvote points. Then I withdrew the upvote and it disappeared without a trace. It is simply not logged. – hol Nov 26 '10 at 7:35
