I have read the other questions here about 'user was removed'. This is not a duplicate because I understand the mechanics of the hit and have taken the hit before (although on the main site).

You will see the decrement next to the aviation site. The hit is 10 points. On to the question...

How could a user give me 10 points?

I asked a question and accrued rep at 5 point increments, but never answered one. Is it possible for a single user to up vote a question twice? I don't get it.

OR were two users removed and the software reported it as an aggregation?

Full rep history...

  • The question got two views immediately. Now I am guessing that there is 1 from me, and the software puts the question into the database and this counts as a view. – Gayot Fow Jul 4 '15 at 1:55
  • @mindcorrosive, there may be someone in the higher ups here who knows and is willing to share. Can we wait until the question has about 22 - 23 views before migration? The question is not the end of the world for me, not urgent; I just don't get how the system worked out what it did. – Gayot Fow Jul 4 '15 at 15:36

    Maybe two users were removed and the system joins the reputation delta. – JoErNanO Jul 5 '15 at 15:44
  • @JoErNanO Unless something has changed recently, only the reputation tab is joining user deletion events, not the dropdown as in the OP's question. – nicael Jul 8 '15 at 17:33
  • could you have two questions? If the single user upvoted them both, then was removed, you would lose more rep. I've lost up to a hundred at a time. – Kate Gregory Jul 8 '15 at 17:53
  • You sure you never answered a question? It might have been long ago. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Jul 8 '15 at 17:55

A single user did not give you 10 rep points on your question, there were 2 users who were deleted approximately about the same time that both had upvoted it.

The "User was removed" is showing an aggregation of both users being deleted.
