On this answer, it says I lost 5 reputation, and I'm really puzzled about what chain of events could have caused this. I don't care about the lost rep, I'm just curious to understand as I've never seen this before.
- Upvotes on answers are +10 reputation. Removal of an upvote on an answer would then be -10.
- Downvotes on questions and answers cost the author -2 reputation; moreover, this answer has a score of 15 up / 0 down.
The only way I could see this notification making any sense is if
- I downvoted another answer to the same question (-1), and
- Two users downvoted my answer (-4)
for a total of -5, except those would show as two separate events, and there are no downvotes on my answer.
What happened here?
