http://stackoverflow.com/reputation?recalc=true  

But after 5 min my reputation from 11928 became 11865 Why ?

Don't forget, "reputation can down as well as up". –  ChrisF Dec 8 '10 at 21:51

What problem? The system did exactly what you asked it to do.

Your displayed reputation is denormalized from your posts, and as posts get deleted (or undeleted), the actual rep and displayed rep gets out of sync. A reputation recalc synchronizes the two.

@org: By default, never. That being said, moderators are able to trigger a recalc on your account at any time. –  Jon Seigel Dec 8 '10 at 18:14

@org: Unfortunately, that's not directly possible because the system views deleted posts as if they never existed. See this question for a possible way to find these posts. –  Jon Seigel Dec 8 '10 at 18:17
    
Ok Thanks Jon . –  Jigar Joshi Dec 8 '10 at 18:18
    
@org: You're welcome. –  Jon Seigel Dec 8 '10 at 18:20
