I got a "-10 Serial voting was reversed" on the Buddhism community - a community that the only post I made was a question in 2014. The last reputation I got from that question was in 2016.

Does serial voting tracking work on reputation that happened at least 5 years ago?

EDIT: While Non-serial voting corrected can be an answer, it doesn't confirm what happened and doesn't explain why it's happening on reputation earned 5 years ago. But it does answer some of my questions, so I'm editing them out.

    Does this answer your question? Non-serial voting corrected

  • If you check the time it was before 0200, while the reversal script runs at 0300, so it was an employee; possibly the person upvoted a number of people and gave you one too, all of their efforts were manually reversed. All the other votes belonged to other people. --- An exact answer would come from an employee who checks exactly what happened, if telling you wouldn't narrow it down to too few a number of people. --- Same thing here: meta.stackexchange.com/q/372199/282094

    I'm moving to leave this open since the cause may not be the same as in the proposed duplicate, i.e. a user using a script to mass-vote on others' posts to game badges, especially since the vote in question was cast at least five years ago. It'd be nice to have a staff response here as to what happened; if it was indeed the same cause, then staff can close it. Dec 2, 2021 at 4:12

    The answer from animuson is identical to any answer that would be put here - it's the broader voting behavior that's problematic, not voting targeted at a specific person - we can't really explain each and every case of this happening.

  • Roberto, if you wish to be certain that a particular person sees what you wrote in your comment you need to precede her user name with an @ it usually indicates that a particular person is reachable by a pop-up at the upper left of the comment window, there are a few additional people @-replyable who don't show up. --- See: meta.stackexchange.com/q/43019/282094

    Thank you @Rob, always wondered why this sometimes doesn't work, I had thought it never worked and I was crazy for thinking it did, so I stopped using :)

  • @Catija No but you could confirm that it happens with really old stuff too :)
