I noticied this question: Notification when my answer is unaccepted? and Wrong display of reputation changes (unaccepts again) but saying this was fixed and that this feature was in the main Q&A platform however I have just received an unaccept which just said -15 rep but didn't give me any reason on my timeline.

It wasn't until I actually asked a question about hidden rep changes and checked my rep 5 times over that I realised it was due to an unaccept.

Any chance this feature might be broken? (hence why I've marked this as a bug)


I have just found out this is because I got the accept and unaccept in the same day which isn't actually a bug. Maybe it might be a feature request to show unaccepts as well as accepts despite being of the same day?

  • Unaccepts within the same day they were accepted don't show up in the rep history.

    @Mysticial Maybe it should? Cos it was kinda confusing to me, or would this be a bad thing do you reckon?

1 Answer 1


Votes and accepts that are undone within the same UTC day are coalesced and will not show up in the rep history.

When the new rep system was implemented, every single action was shown - including all the "bouncing" votes. So they were later all merged together.
