# Why do I have a mysterious reputation change on my profile?

I had $$256$$ reputation on MSE till yesterday. But today when I checked my account, it had decreased down to $$216$$. I did not post any question or answer in the past few days and there is no new upvote/downvote on any of my posts. The reputation change is also not visible in the reputation tab in my profile and the last reputation change was on July 20 as shown on the webpage. The reputation curve also modified cleverly and it does not show that I had 256 reputation ever even though I had.

Now you might be thinking that I never gained 256 reputation, but I did have it and I also had View close votes privilege. The Achievements tab mentions that I received View close votes privilege.

But now I no longer have that privilege due to this unknown loss of reputation.

Can someone please tell why my reputation changed mysteriously overnight even after no new post?

• At the end of the page of your reputation math.stackexchange.com/users/935059/riverx15?tab=reputation there would be a option Show deleted posts like i.stack.imgur.com/w0Kl0.png . Is that option checked? If not please check it and tell are you able to see the rep change

• @JitendraSingh Yes. One of the answers with exactly that amount of reputation that I lost has been deleted because the original post has been deleted. Thank you very much. Jul 28 '21 at 4:20

• @GerryMyerson FYI, you're partially correct. As stated & discussed in the Meta Conditions for keeping reputation in case of post deletion question & answer, the post needs to also have a score $\ge 3$. Jul 29 '21 at 0:27
