I'm just curious and not particularly concerned to know that when my rep changed from 2005 to 2003, I went to check the rep tab, and there I could see no reason for that happening which is the first-of-its-kind thing for me.

Any ideas?

As pointed out by quid, above is the reason for the change of 2.

for users below 10k, as MartinSleziak has shown, can check from the above link.

But still I wonder why it did not show up in the reputation tab?

My rep tab (Kindly focus on the "yesterday" part. No negative is present!:

    $\begingroup$ It's hard to be sure, it could be the deletion of a question you edited via a suggested edit. There is a somewhat recent event of this kind and it maybe does not register instantly. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The obligatory question: It the checkbox "show removed posts" at the bottom of your reputation tab checked? $\endgroup$ Aug 31, 2022 at 17:27

    $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak yes. $\endgroup$ Aug 31, 2022 at 17:33
  • $\begingroup$ @quid if the register happens late but it does nonetheless then I will make sure to inform here. But nothing yet. $\endgroup$ Aug 31, 2022 at 17:35

    $\begingroup$ You were downvoted recently here. Is that the reason? $\endgroup$ Aug 31, 2022 at 17:53
  • $\begingroup$ @ArcticChar no, that post was downvoted 2 days ago and I have received it's notification right then itself. Confirmed from the reputation tab again. $\endgroup$ Aug 31, 2022 at 19:02

    $\begingroup$ Here is a SEDE query which lists suggested edits on deleted post (for a given user). The database is updated once a week - maybe after the weekend (i.e., after the next update) you can check whether some new entries are shown there. $\endgroup$ Aug 31, 2022 at 19:52

    $\begingroup$ I do not understand what you say. It was displayed. I am referring to this post math.stackexchange.com/questions/4521786/… $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Quid's theory is as good as any. I once saw in my reputation tap that I lost 2 points because a user was removed. That was a bit baffling. The best match could be that somebody had upvoted one of my posts and downvoted four for a total of +2, and those were then invalidated. But I don't get many downvotes. Go figure? $\endgroup$ Sep 1, 2022 at 3:49
  • $\begingroup$ For an approved edit, a post that was removed due to the deletion of the user will result in a -2. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ All I'm saying is that perhaps what @Nij or Quid says might have happened But, there is no record of it in the reputation tab. That's all. [No removed notification, no deleted notification, no user deleted notification, etc. All the entries are positive and none negative.] [None belonging to yesterday.] $\endgroup$ Sep 1, 2022 at 5:45
  • $\begingroup$ Also, I can't see the post by @quid so I can't verify either, (none to blame ofc). $\endgroup$ Sep 1, 2022 at 5:46
  • $\begingroup$ @InanimateBeing The post is deleted - but if you check a link to the suggested edit, you should see it. (At least I see the suggested edit even while not logged in, so I do not think that for viewing the suggested edit review of a deleted post one needs 10k+.) $\endgroup$ Sep 1, 2022 at 7:11
  • $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak thank you. That must be it. quid was right then. Though I wonder still why it did not show up in the reputation tab. (?!) $\endgroup$ Sep 1, 2022 at 7:13
  • $\begingroup$ @quid Looking at another question here on meta (and your answer there) it seems that in that case the reputation change was displayed in the reputation tab. (Or at least it was shown to the OP - who included the screenshot.) Here is a link to that question: What is the reason for this change of reputation? Reputation tab says "-2" and "removed". $\endgroup$ Sep 1, 2022 at 7:25
