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

Currently if you downvote a post and it is removed your lost reputation point is not restored. Wouldn't it make sense to restore lost reputation if you downvote on a post that is subsequently removed?

You'll gain the reputation back when your reputation is recalculated. You can trigger a reputation recalc if you scroll all the way to the bottom of your Reputation Report.

@BilltheLizard I removed posts which was not supposed to do - if I knew that it would automatically ban you.. (I removed my post because I wanted to reask them, and then suddenly I could't ask anymore questions. Could you perhaps help me to lift my ban? – Castrovalva Nov 28 '12 at 13:34
