Tonight I got the following reputation change notification:
According to this answer it must have happened because a user account which was used to accept my edits got removed.
Important fact: I still have <2000 reputation on AskUbuntu and I reached 1000 rep point limit from suggested edits some time ago. My reputation page shows
earned 1000 reputation from suggested edits.
That means if reputation change from "user was removed"-event was from the reputation gained with edits, my reputation from suggested edits should decrease below 1000 and I should be able to regain it my making another approved edit (just like happened several times with deleted questions). I tried and it did not happen, meaning my reputation from edits is still at constant 1000.
the 1000 reputation limit from suggested edits is not really set on reputation points, but on the number of 500 editswhich can easily be ruled out, because users can gain multiple +2s from editing one post or gain no reputation from editing posts after the daily was cap reached, yet reputation limit seems to be properly implemented at 1000 points;
- the reputation change from "user was removed"-event was implemented not as history rewrite (like in case of deleted questions), but by adding negative reputation (hence visible in reputation history)ーhowever it decreases only overall reputation, and does not decrease the reputation-from-suggested-edits counter (the one checked against the 1000-point limit)ーthis sounds like a bug (it should work in the same way as with deleted questions);
- -2, -1*, -2, -2 reputation change from "user was removed"-event was not really from reverting the editsーthen from what?
Which is true? Or is there any logical explanation to this?
* Because of a daily cap, one of my edits gave me +1 reputation.
