Sorry for the horrible title, I'm not sure how better to phrase it.

2 days ago I had 1740 points, then 2 hours later my total had moved up to 1840 points, and I noticed I had 10 upvotes on 10 different questions. A little strange but excellent I thought and carried about my business. I checked again a day later and the 10 upvotes had disappeared and my total had gone back to 1740.

What gives? is this just some weird bug or reconciliation error?

  • You've got a lot more votes like that. There might be another big rep drop in the future when user accounts get merged. Best to flag a moderator and get it taken care of now. Feb 12, 2012 at 11:20

Sounds like the 10 upvotes were all from the same user and thus the vote fraud detection script (which runs periodically) cancelled them out.
