How about a message letting us know the reason for large changes to our rep?

I just noticed that I'm now under 5000 reputation points. I was almost on 7000 here on Meta. I don't know when this was changed, but I'd say it happened within the past month.

My Stack Overflow account, however has not been affected, nor has any of my other accounts. Why are all my reputation points gone?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Is there any activity on your profile reputation tag? – Phil Lello May 1 '11 at 23:08
  • @Phil, no. I remember there being a largeish disparity between /reputation and my actual reputation. But even in /reputation it reported my reputation to be I believe about 6000 or 5500 last I checked. – Earlz May 1 '11 at 23:08
  • It was a hosed-up deal, I lost over 4k on Meta. Guess we just don't rate. – Lance Roberts May 2 '11 at 2:23

Ah, of course another unannounced reputation change. See here

    It's a little silly to post an answer complaining about an unannounced rep change in one sentence and linking to the announcement in the other – Michael Mrozek May 1 '11 at 23:25
  • @Mich it wasn't an announcement. It was another user complaining about changes to reputation. – Earlz May 1 '11 at 23:27

    No, @Michael, it's another way to get the message across that nobody is getting. And of course, he probably found the answer after he posted the question; that's happened to me many times. – Lance Roberts May 2 '11 at 2:22
