I am pretty sure my reputation score yesterday was 2095. It was 2080 prior & +15 was added by acceptance of an answer. But when I logged in today it is showing as 2087. I tried looking at https://magento.stackexchange.com/reputation but didn't found any decrease in score infact the whole calculation is showing that my score yesterday was 2072 and +15 was added making it to 2087(which is not correct).

This is not the first time I see my score getting decreased by strange reason, it had happened previously as well but I had not kept note of score so I did not posted a question.

Is there a way where I can get why my score was decreased ? I know it can happen when someone deletes the question for which I earned reputation by making edits/answer. But can I see it in log ?

Thanks

I know it can happen when someone deletes the question for which I earned reputation by making edits/answer.

Yes, that's the most likely scenario. It's a difference of 8; that could be an answer with 1 upvote and 1 downvote, or 4 suggested edits. It usually happens automatically on old posts with low scores.

This SEDE query, which looks at a snapshot from the Magento.SE database from last Sunday, tells me you have approved suggested edits on the following questions, all posted about a year ago, which have now been deleted:

Is it fair to lose those points? That's a tough question, but at the very least it's an incentive not to spend too much time on low quality questions.

(I've saved a copy of the query in the Wayback Machine, because tomorrow those records will be deleted from SEDE; almost all information about deleted posts is removed from SEDE.)

  • Thanks for given such a detailed info. Just a quick question, So next time whenever I get such behavior I can debug through the query you provided ? Jul 25 '20 at 11:00
  • Yes, if you do it before Sunday morning. Look for questions which are just over a year old (or 30 days / 9 days, see magento.stackexchange.com/help/roomba).
