What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I checked my SO account this morning to find that I had -15 rep for the day. I find this rather odd since I haven't been down voted or have any bounties out. It looks like one of my accepted answers got unaccepted but I don't seem to have any visibility into that? Is there a way to track down this phantom negative reputation?

If you lose an accepted answer you are not notified of this and cannot track this within SE (see meta.stackexchange.com/questions/1659/… , meta.stackexchange.com/questions/25351/… and meta.stackexchange.com/questions/72207/… for example), this seems the most likely cause. – DMA57361 Apr 8 '11 at 11:59

If you like to monitor which answers got unaccepted,

save http://stackoverflow.com/reputation page everyday to your local computer,

and try diffing those when you see, you losing something.

@andrew-white this happened to me recently, when an asker initially accepted my answer, but then switched their accept-checkmark to someone else's answer. – Kelvin May 24 '11 at 19:54
