Is there a way we can go back to look at reputation/badges history?

i.e the number of questions(asked/answered) before getting a badge, and number of questions asked/answered after getting a badge.

You can see your rep changes over time on your profile activity page, and it looks like actually, your rep increased by nearly 400 from 139.

Probably part of the confusion is due to the recent change making question upvotes worth 10 not 5. Many users have been confused by this change.

Also, I'm able to see the votes and can confirm that question was only downvoted once. I wouldn't worry about single "driveby" downvotes without comments, they usually don't mean anything and only cost 2 points; often a little while later you'll get a random upvote from someone who disagrees with the downvote and that's a net +8.

If you get many downvotes, or downvotes with comments explaining what you should have done better, that's when to stop and think about whether the way you're asking questions isn't doing enough to help the people you're asking for free help.

  • @forkdbloke I would recommend against purposely trying to get reputation. Try to use Stackoverflow as a tool and ignore the gamification of it. Otherwise you may find the reverse effect.
