Just a few seconds ago I typed in an answer to this question.

How to use $_GET or $_POST variable to distinguish each type of request?

that type my reputation was 1971

and I deleted my answer for the question after some seconds and some seconds later I found that the reputation now is 1969. I could not see any downvotes still.

I went to check my reputation change feed and couldn't find any record for this.


Please help me out


I checked it with the show removed posts check box on, and still couldn't find any feed for today.

    You probably had an unrelated suggested edit on a post that was deleted at around the same time.

    Make sure you check the "show removed posts" box at the bottom of your rep page.

This question (10k+) for which you had an approved suggested edit was deleted and factored into that recalc, that's where the -2 came from.

Once you hit the 1k cap from suggested edits though, another suggested edit will take its place in situations like this.


Same thing happened to me.. I too lost two points unknowingly. It has nothing to do with your deleted answer. A post which brought you points earlier would have been deleted. so the points which you gain from it like edit/upvote/accept will eventually vanish
