I found something in my reputation history that I cannot explain. Could someone please put some light on this?

25 + 10 = 26

According to this log, 25+10=36

  • That question was already closed 2012 with the same dupe and you realize that know?

Try checking the "show removed posts" checkbox.

That "invisible" +1 rep is almost certainly the result of a post you downvoted being removed.

  • Has this question not been granted FAQ status yet? Something that explains generally how and why to use the "show removed posts" checkbox? Apr 21, 2012 at 23:44

    @TheEstablishment Iunno. Not that I'm aware of. Personally, I don't get why the preference even exists in the first place. Seems like a no-brainer to enable this as soon as you notice it.

  • @lunboks it is not that easy to notice... maybe the position should be changed to the top of the list instead of the bottom.Currently if I do not scroll all the way down I cannot see the checkbox.
