I deleted an answer which had no upvotes or downvotes, but after some time I saw that my reputation was -2 and the reason is linked to my search engine.

I want to know why this happened and what "linked to my serach engine" means?

    "linked to my search engine" is simply the title of that post... – Lix Aug 29 '12 at 7:26
  • I don't really understand the problem...you lost reputation because it was deleted, but you deleted it? Try to make the issue here a little clearer. :) – Purag Aug 29 '12 at 7:26

    No, it was not your question and you did not delete it. "linked to my serach engine" is the title of the question that got removed. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask V2 Aug 29 '12 at 7:38
  • I answered one question after sometime i deleted that answer, so i get -2 and linked to my search engine in reason. – Tony Stark Aug 29 '12 at 7:42

    Close voters: Despite the business about "linked to my serach engine", this is actually a potentially useful post for any sub-10k user who sees -2 from a removed post, since they have no way to see it and it's unlikely they'll figure out that they suggested an edit on it otherwise. – jscs Aug 30 '12 at 17:20

This is unrelated to the answer you deleted.

You suggested an edit to a question titled "linked to my serach engine"[sic] (10k-only link), and the suggestion was accepted, gaining you two rep points.

The question was later closed, then deleted by three other users (Charles, Mat, and John Saunders). The two rep from your edit was removed along with the question.
