This answer I posted was deleted by Robert Cartaino ♦ and I agree with the delete reason but the problem now is that in my reputation changes history it shows -28 for the deleted post but my change in reputation only shows -5. (From 581 to 576)

I didn't lose up to 28. What's the issue here?

Maybe you hit the reputation cap for that day and of those 28 only 5 were previously added to your score.

When the answer got removed you only lost the previously gained 5 reputation instead of the full 28 reputation. (I guess it got 3 up and 1 downvote to make up the 28)

  • I've actually hit the reputation cap today. I guess thats the reason

    That will do it. Go to [your profile] > 'reputation' > 'time'. Everything seems to be accounted for. Commented Oct 10, 2013 at 16:51
  • @RobertCartaino Thanks. I understand now
