This is relevant to the question What is serial voting and how does it affect me?.

I had the same thing happen to me yesterday, as six of my answers were downvoted at the same time. According to the answers provided to the question above, I should get the reputation back.

However, it seems that while some of my reputation was returned, not all of it has been. (basically half of the lost reputation)

enter image description here

Can I do anything about this?

  • Not really no. Then the system, with its detailed information, determined not all events were serial downvotes. Perhaps some of them were legitimate and just unfortunately timed.

    5 of the downvotes were within 2 minutes and 3 have been reversed. Oct 9 '13 at 8:41
  • @huMptyduMpty Mere assumptions. We don't know and moderators don't know. You could flag for attention, or perhaps this post will be seen by a dev. But getting more of your rep back is unlikely I'd say.

  • @fedorqui: All those answers were already having 5 or 5+ votes! So what happned to the other two? Oct 9 '13 at 8:43

    @Bart: How can I flag this kind of situation for moderator attention? Oct 9 '13 at 8:44
  • I guess there is a pattern that those 3 matched and the other 2 did not... As the algorithm is not known, it is difficult to guess what really happened. Oct 9 '13 at 8:44

    @huMptyduMpty Flag one of the affected posts using the "other" option.

    Yeah happened to me too. Serially downvoted on 20 Aug on 6 posts. But only 3 were reversed on 21 Aug. Oct 9 '13 at 8:56
  • @Bart - I did it but they didn't find any evidence to support it. Oct 9 '13 at 9:06

    I think it's two users. I've asked a community manager to look at it.

  • @Flexo: Seems something happned. I can see two of those questions with undownvote and reputation is given back. Thanks!! Oct 9 '13 at 14:49
  • Lol!!! It is just 12 downvotes... Not millions of money :-D Aug 21 '17 at 10:12

I have flag one my question (which got downvoted) as others - >needs moderator attention (As suggest by Bart in one of the comment)

I received response from Stack Exchange Team after sometimes and they have un-down voted those down votes and reputation is back.
