I just lost 16 points because a "user was removed".

lost rep



When does -2 happen? I (honestly) can't remember participating in those questions in any way at all. And so I can't see, at least from the image, why the points were deducted.


Those were questions you edited in your pre 2k days, and they have since been deleted (either the question, answer or user). I'm not sure why the rep gets removed, I myself think a good edit is a good edit period..

  • Thank you for pointing the out edit stuff. I had forgotten all about the +2's I got that way. – user25656 Jan 18 '14 at 5:31

    If a user was removed, aren't their posts (and thus the revisions) retained? – kiri Jan 18 '14 at 6:52
  • @minerz029 I guess I should have been more clear on that. There are two types of user deletions, delete and destroy. If a user is destroyed all his posts go with him. Granted, it doesn't happen too often. – Seth Jan 18 '14 at 17:15
  • @Seth and everyone else, this MSO post may be relevant. – Thomas Ward Jan 18 '14 at 18:56
