On August 21, I had a reputation of 2529 in stackoverflow, and after some time, it dropped to 2527. I thought it as a -1 to my answer. But the reputation tab is not showing anything. Reputation

What will be the possible reason for this?


I enabled "show removed posts" option and the complete screenshot is here https://i.sstatic.net/JzZtF.png

    Did you turn on "show removed posts" at the very bottom of your reputation list? A post for which you suggested an edit might have been removed.

    See Lost reputation, but the decrease does not show in my reputation history. One option is that post you edited (with a suggested edit) was deleted, that'd be a -2. Commented Aug 25, 2012 at 13:05

  • You can always visit stackoverflow.com/reputation to trigger a re-calc and do a full audit. Also, though I am not certain, if an suggested edit was approved for a post and the post was subsequently deleted within the grace period, it could be that the removal event is not shown on your reputation tab, you just loose the 2 points again. Compare to a accept then unaccept event close together, which are also removed from your history. Commented Aug 25, 2012 at 13:26
  • @MartijnPieters it shows "rep today: 20". I know about 20, 2 upvotes for my answers, but still I don't know about -2
