This is actually an odd question for me, so let me explain it as best I can...

After logging back into the Stack Exchange Network after some time, I got a notification stating that my 3D Printing Stack Exchange Profile has had 10 reputation deducted.

Now, after reading the 'Read more' link provided by Stack, I still fail to understand why I have this entry on my reputation change sheet. I don't recall voting to close anyone's profile on the Stack Exchange (that's just being cruel IMHO)

Attached is a screenshot of my reputation change sheet.

Reputation change


1 Answer 1


A user's account was deleted, for whatever reason. Therefore, any votes that they had cast in the past were automatically deleted, and any associated reputation changes were lost. A lot of other people, across many SE sites, also lost a lot of reputation on 25/05/2019 as the user, whose account was removed, was a frequent voter.

See the answers to Change the criteria for vote retention upon account removal.

I know nothing more than that. I did mention it in [chat], see this post.

  • $\begingroup$ Ah. That makes more sense. It also appears that I misinterpreted the explanation provided by Stack. Therefore, thanks for clearing this up. Marked as Answer $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @GipsyD - You got a -10 here ... I lost 800 points on Mechanics.SE during the same sweep. Argh. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 23, 2019 at 12:35
