# My reputation is shrinking with no reasons

I have been busy with other things in my life lately, so I haven't been active on MSE for the last couple of days. First my reputation decreased by 2 points few days ago, and today when I checked my profile again my reputation had decreased by another 8 points. I checked the reputation tab and it didn't show any downvotes or changes in my reputation. How is that possible?

• @some1.new4u: Regarding your first point, I am not certain exactly what you see in your reputation tab, but I suspect that you do not see events associated with deleted posts (or perhaps they are mysteriously described). If you go to your reputation tab listed by "time" do you see any specific events for the following two UTC times 2013-09-28 03:00:20Z and 2013-09-30 03:00:15Z? If so, how are they described? – user642796 Sep 30 '13 at 11:52
