Now, my reputation goes down everyday by -2 to -6. For example, yesterday I was 702 or 704, now I am at 698. And I have no clue when it started, it has been happening for at least a week now. I remember it being around 714 on April 27th, and I made sure there is at least +2 everyday (shown here - there is even a +20 in the log, which never showed up.).

Nothing unusual is shown here except a down voted answer here, can that be the reason?

Also, the (+XYZ) near reputation in new user profile is updated correctly.

    $\begingroup$ It is possible that the posts that you've edited have been deleted. I can't say for sure. There should be a checkbox at the bottom "show removed posts", try to check that and see what happens. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila, since April 27, I have gained at least (+)30, and lost more than (-)40, even if its just post edits, that would mean deletion of ~20posts. $\endgroup$ Commented May 5, 2015 at 4:33
  • $\begingroup$ Also, will downvoted (for reason unknown) answer cause recurring reputation loss? $\endgroup$ Commented May 5, 2015 at 4:36

    $\begingroup$ (1) Many posts get deleted all the time. (2) No. Unless it is downvoted several times. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila, (1), I agree, but I doubt that's the reason. And why gradual loss, -2 to -4 everyday for more than a week? Also, answers/questions last week were not deleted, and also, the last +20 was never reflected on reputation! $\endgroup$ Commented May 5, 2015 at 4:42
  • $\begingroup$ Those as speculations on my side. I don't know. You can ask a moderator to look into that, either by lurking in the chatroom of the Mods' Office, or by raising a flag on one of your posts. I don't have access to the information you seek. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ According to this, suggested edits should still be visible even if the post is deleted - however I do not know how to find a link to the suggested edit, even if I have a link to a deleted question. But I suppose that also review of the post will be visible. (Maybe some user with less than 10k can confirm.) $\endgroup$ Commented May 5, 2015 at 6:38

  • $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak Click the "post history"/"revisions" link, for instance, to go to this page. Since the header for Jesse's edit says "edit approved Apr 25 ...", we know it was a suggested revision and not one made with edit privileges. $\endgroup$
