• What happens with your rep if you delete a question that was closed previously?

  • Do you lose rep points?

I deleted a question that I asked in Unix & Linux that was downvoted (-2), and I regained +4 rep. But I deleted a post that was closed, and I think I lost about 2 points.

Why is that?

There is a threshold. If a post is deleted that has more than 3 upvotes and has been visible for more than 60 days, there is no change in reputation. Else there is.

Also, deleting of community wiki posts have no effect on reputation.
