My account had 2 reputation deducted for a question which I haven't asked. The question also doesn't appear in my question asked list. Why did it happen? Will I be refunded my reputation points?

Here is the link for the reputation page: https://stackoverflow.com/users/2776146/kptryin?tab=reputation

The change in reputation was on december 28th.

    You should at least post a pic or link to it. We have no clue as to where & when of the problem. Dec 30 '13 at 11:30
  • We can't see the item you're referring to. Please post an image of your reputation page, and a link to the question. Dec 30 '13 at 11:49
  • Post the title of the question for which you got -2, we can't see it in your reputation tab. Dec 30 '13 at 11:49
  • @MichaelPetrotta no link for <10K users, but title will be enough to search and hopefully Google cached it. :) Dec 30 '13 at 11:50
  • Please click either "post" or "time" next to "graph" and then take screenshot. Graph does not provide details. Dec 30 '13 at 12:04

  • OK, here is link to the question. (10K only) Dec 30 '13 at 12:30

On December 18, you suggested an edit to a question titled "javaWrite a small program using JQuery and JavaScript that can take a number and print it upside down on the screen".

enter image description here

That suggestion was accepted, and you received two points. Unfortunately, that question was poorly received, heavily downvoted, closed, and finally deleted on December 28. When it was deleted, you lost the points you gained from your suggestion.

Deleted posts are hidden in many places - that's why we can't see it in your reputation history, and why you won't be able to visit the links above, until you have at least 10k reputation.


Probably you got two points for editing that question, but if that question is removed, the points that you gained for the editing are also removed.

  • In my reputation graph, I don't have the +2 reputation change shown

  • @KPTryin: I don't see any other reason than the editing points that are removed.

  • Why doesn't it show the +2 reputation change when I might have edited it?

  • @KPTryin: I'm not sure, but probably it didn't include the +2 because this +2 was removed.

  • Is it a bug or purposeful?

  • @KPTryin: I think it is by design, but I'm not sure.
