Till yesterday my reputation was 4769. Today I notice its gone down to 4701.
I understand reputation can go down because of various reasons [unaccept an answer, unvote, down vote etc].
But I would like to know if something on scoring & calculation has changed.

  • p.s. mine just dropped from 9025 to 8891, due to a recalc. See my answer below. Mar 2 '12 at 1:15

Occasionally, the reputation numbers in the system may be recalculated.

In such cases it is possible for reputation to decrease if you had, for instance, answered a question, had some up-votes on your answer, and the question were subsequently deleted (for instance, as off-topic, not a real question, etc.)

The recalculation doesn't count up-votes on deleted questions and answers.
