I edited the title of one my old questions and then I noticed that my reputation points got reduced by 48 points. Are those two events correlated?

  • $\begingroup$ It's possibly because after you edit a question, it becomes active, and comes to the attention of users browsing active questions. Then, it might receive new up-/down-votes. $\endgroup$ Apr 22, 2011 at 19:21
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks Sadeq. Actually, that question got one more vote and became 7 upvotes. $\endgroup$ Apr 22, 2011 at 20:07
  • $\begingroup$ I can't see any reason for the reduction. I suggest you look at your answers to make sure that a question that you have answered previously has not been deleted. Btw, I can recalculate your reputation to make sure it is up-to-date if you want. $\endgroup$

Sometimes, when questions get deleted, users who had originally provided answers lose those points. So I'm more inclined to think the events weren't correlated.
