Let's say I answer a question. And there are upvotes for my answer (so, I get reputation points for my answer). Now, the question is deleted. What happens to my answer and what happens to the reputation points I earned?

    TL;DR: answer will be deleted as well, and reputation will be lost (unless it's 60 days or older and scoring 3 or more). – Glorfindel Feb 19 at 13:05

    Do note that question author can't delete it once an answer is upvoted. It can only be deleted by others. So those cases are pretty rare. :) – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Feb 19 at 13:17

    ...and usually mean that the question was deleted for moderation reasons rather than voluntarily. – Sonic the Bracketed Hedgehog Feb 19 at 14:34
