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

Possible Duplicates:
Can you lose an ability if your reputation falls below a threshold?
Does loss of reputation cause loss of privileges?

Heaven forbid, I gave a 'funny' answer, and I got down voted pretty severely.

If I do this, is it possible to lose privileges?

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.

Yes, you lose the privileges again if you fall below the threshold by being downvoted or by posting bounties.

You can just delete your question to regain your reputation, if there are no upvoted answers present.

The privileges are tied to your reputation, so yes, losing rep will result in the respective privileges being not available till yor rep meets the privilege criteria.
