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

Today I saw a question with just phpphpphpphpphpphpphphphp and the answer content was just sdfsdfsdfsdfsdf. So I added a comment like "Moderators please delete this question".

After a while I got a downvote. THe reputation tab and the popup which appears when mouse is hovered on my name showed requtation -1. -1 had a link and when I clicked that the old reputations appeared and I couldn't find for which question I got down vote.

This happened in Stack Overflow. The reputation was 341 and not it is 340.

Actually after a few seconds the moderators closed that question and had deleted it.

Please, use the flag link rather than posting "Moderators please delete this" – Sathya Apr 6 '11 at 17:11

Probably you downvoted this question, which is deleted already because of spam flags.

only 10k+ users could see question now.

if you think, you should get -1 back, check your reps at

and there is recalc button, if you see your reps is 341 there, you could initiate the button to get 1 rep back.

I recalced and it went down to 337. But there won't be any more surprises. – mmyers Apr 6 '11 at 17:30
