So recently I posted an answer to a fresh question. In some few seconds, another person added their answer very similar to mine. Since I was ahead of them, I received some upvotes. Suddenly I began to notice some reputation drop. I immediately checked it, only to find out that some of my long forgotten, dead posts have received downvotes.

I'm sure these incidents are related somehow. Can the mods help me with this?

    $\begingroup$ You should use flags for this. $\endgroup$ – Matt Samuel Nov 4 '20 at 18:02
  • $\begingroup$ What do I flag? Do I flag my questions that have been downvoted? $\endgroup$ – DatBoi Nov 4 '20 at 18:04

    $\begingroup$ I would flag one of the ones that have been downvoted for moderator attention with a detailed explanation. $\endgroup$ – Matt Samuel Nov 4 '20 at 18:05
  • $\begingroup$ Note the "custom reason" option for flagging moderator attention. $\endgroup$ – hardmath Nov 5 '20 at 0:19
  • $\begingroup$ There is no reason to flag unless they serial voted without seeing your content and the vote reversal script failed to catch to it. Even if you had an answer which has 100+ upvotes and more than 10 years old, anyone can downvote it (anonymously, moderators cannot catch/track them) $\endgroup$ – Anindya Prithvi Nov 6 '20 at 18:52
