I appear to have lost 75 reputation with no indication as to why. On meta it shows the 14019 but in the main site it shows 13944. I was wondering what happened (wasn't sure if this is the correct place to ask this but figured I'd try).

Need to prove: $| a + 1/a | \geq 2$ for $a \neq 0$ was deleted by vote, and your answer to that question went with it. You can see this if you check the box that says "show removed posts" which is at the bottom of your reputation list.

  • $\begingroup$ I looked in my recently deleted posts and I didn't see it. I guess I was looking in the wrong place. Thanks. $\endgroup$ – Matt Samuel Mar 29 '15 at 16:47
  • $\begingroup$ I can see the post in this list, but that list is sorted by date answered, not date deleted (this seems wrong). $\endgroup$ – robjohn Mar 29 '15 at 16:50
  • $\begingroup$ That's why I missed it then. I was looking at the top. $\endgroup$ – Matt Samuel Mar 29 '15 at 16:51
  • $\begingroup$ It is "recent deleted" not "recently deleted." The deciding factor for inclusion is the age of the post not the time passed since the event of deletion. This makes the sorting criteria more reasonable too. $\endgroup$ – quid Mar 29 '15 at 16:53

    $\begingroup$ I still would think there would be some indication of why the reputation was lost. I've gotten recent messages saying reputation was lost because a user was deleted, for example. $\endgroup$ – Matt Samuel Mar 29 '15 at 16:56
  • $\begingroup$ @MattSamuel If you check the "show removed posts" box at the bottom of the reputation tab of your profile, such events will be listed in your reputation history. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Fischer Mar 29 '15 at 17:01
  • $\begingroup$ @MattSamuel: I believe that that would take an SE wide code change to include "question deleted" events to the reputation lists, similar to the "user removed" events. Depending on how prevalent the deletion of answered questions is on other sites, and on how hard the code change is, the developers might be swayed to add such events. $\endgroup$ – robjohn Mar 29 '15 at 17:02
  • $\begingroup$ @DanielFischer Nice hidden feature, thanks. $\endgroup$ – Matt Samuel Mar 29 '15 at 17:02
  • $\begingroup$ @DanielFischer: That was the checkbox I was trying to suggest. Thanks. I've edited my post to link to that (but my link will only be relevant to Matt). $\endgroup$ – robjohn Mar 29 '15 at 17:03
  • $\begingroup$ Re: but my link will only be relevant to Matt. Wouldn't link like this work for any user who is logged in? http://math.stackexchange.com/users/current?tab=reputation math.stackexchange.com/users/current?tab=reputation $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Mar 29 '15 at 17:18
  • $\begingroup$ @MattSamuel "Reputation was lost because a user was deleted" is exactly what it says. When a user who has voted on your posts is deleted, their votes and their effect on your rep are also wiped. $\endgroup$ – epimorphic Mar 29 '15 at 18:09
  • $\begingroup$ @epimorphic that's not what happened this time though. $\endgroup$ – Matt Samuel Mar 29 '15 at 18:11
  • $\begingroup$ @epimorphic if you read the answer you're commenting on you would see that the cause has been identified. $\endgroup$ – Matt Samuel Mar 29 '15 at 18:14
  • $\begingroup$ @MattSamuel Sorry, misread your second-to-last comment. My initial comment is limited to your earlier comment about the hit from user deletion. $\endgroup$ – epimorphic Mar 29 '15 at 18:17
  • $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak: Yes, thanks. I keep forgetting about users/current. I will update my post. $\endgroup$ – robjohn Mar 29 '15 at 18:18
