Notification when my answer is unaccepted?

Today I lost 5 reputation despite someone upvoting one of my old answers. So I suspect that someone else that had accepted an answer of mine have un-accepted it. Out of curiosity, is there any way to track this?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
Go to stackoverflow.com/reputation and save it, diff that later on. – YOU Apr 28 '11 at 10:45

There is not an easy way to track this other than saving information about your accepted answers and manually comparing it later. YOU's idea of using the /reputation page is most likely your best bet.

There are other ways to lose rep that are hard to track as well: Up-votes that are removed, user's deleted or questions deleted.

Thanks for your reply. Looking my reputation page I've discovered that two days ago I reached 205 of reputation and now it's 190. So I've lost one day of reputation cap. :) – nick rulez Apr 28 '11 at 11:04

If you remember the question, you can check the "unaccepted" status on question timeline

For example, http://stackoverflow.com/posts/5780298/timeline

So it could actually be reported then? – ChrisF Apr 28 '11 at 13:21
    
@ChrisF, technically, I think they can, but I am not sure they want to alert users with that status change, because we cannot do anything with OP's unaccepting our answers. – YOU Apr 28 '11 at 13:24
