I expected the feature to work as specified here:

...In order to show removed posts, you need to make sure the checkbox all the way at the bottom is checked.

show removed posts

Yesterday, that worked just fine. For example, my reputation tab at Programmers used to show me votes on posts removed on Apr 3 and 4.

Today, this is not the case anymore, as shown at below screen shot. Apr 3 events do not display +1 that has been shown yesterday for deleted post.

enter image description here

To make sure that it's not something else, I also checked a couple of recently deleted questions having answers with my downvotes - none of these are reflected in my rep history tab (details for SE developers - 10K only Programmers links I checked: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

It looks like a side effect of the fix for recently reported bug: votes on removed posts became hidden for everyone, including myself.

This was my bug from yesterday, we intentionally started hiding those votes from other users but owners were not properly special cased. A fix is building out now to remedy this.

  • ...(as an ex-tester) I also verified that yesterday bug didn't leak through back again: in logged out mode, my reputation-history doesn't show removed posts; these are invisible to others, just as it should be

    @gnat - excellent, sorry for FUBARing that! Commented Apr 12, 2013 at 12:19
  • @NickCraver I don't think a small mistake like that qualifies as "FUBAR" :) But thanks for fixing it.
