I deleted this answer, which had been downvoted once. I just checked, and it seems I have lost another 6 rep for removing it.

I never knew deleting answers removed rep. Can someone please confirm?

  • You have enough rep to see the upvote and downvote count on a post, just move your cursor on the count digit of rep and click it and you will see the up/downvote.

It's actually sitting at +1 / -2, which gives you 1*10 + 2*-2 = 6 rep.

Negative net rep from posts is always removed when you delete them, and positive net rep is also removed if the post is below +3 or younger than 2 months.

  • Ah, that makes sense. Thanks :)
