What does "rep change" mean?

This happens when a post that gave you sufficient rep to give a bounty was subsequently removed. After a rep-recalc, the system finds that you no longer had enough rep to "have given" the bounty. But ...

How can I find posts related to lost reputation due to a "user was removed" message?

Today I discovered by accident that this information is (sometimes) visible in your personal timeline/feed in the Stack Exchange app: These two -10s corresponds to this -20 "user was removed" entry ...

Please hide "serial upvoting reversed" entries in the public reputation history

We can't easily hide these entirely; it would break the accounting for the reputation history in ways that would make it more difficult audit, which is sorta the whole point of having it public in the ...

Significantly upvoted posts, not suspended user, despite he has only 1 reputation

An often-forgotten effect of the "spam" and "rude or abusive" flags are that they impose a -100 penalty on the author of the post if they're actioned (that is to say, if enough ...

Negative reputation for unknown reason

Almost always, this is a post you edited before you had 2K that was deleted. You got the +2 for the suggested edit and when the post was deleted, you lost that rep.

Am I meant to be able to see a user's negative rep changes?

I'm pretty sure this isn't a bug. Other people can see the down-votes you've received on your profile. After all if they go to the post the can see the vote breakdown (assuming they have enough rep ...

Reputation tab shows +30, +40, +50, +60, +70, +80, +90, +100, +110, each as an individual event for one day

In the process of updating the layout for the Activity Reputation page, a bug was introduced that replicated the first reputation entry for a given item for each reputation change instead of the ...

Why only two downvotes shown instead of nine?

This is by design. A user can never go below 1 reputation, any downvotes when the user is at 1 are not generally not recorded if they are the only events in a day. Take this user for example, or this ...

How can I find posts related to lost reputation due to a "user was removed" message?

The system doesn't give you a way to figure out which posts lost votes. A sufficiently-curious person could use SEDE, which is updated only weekly, to try to figure it out, I suppose (assuming the ...

Why not combine the events for the same day?

As I can see from the yellow highlight, it was showing you the changes you hadn't seen on the 'Reputation' tab yet. After you saw them, it rolled them into one.

Answer re-accepted but still -15 RP

This is just a matter of both the unaccept and re-accept coming in at the exact same time and throwing the system off. A simple recalculation of your account fixed the issue.
