Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

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
