I'm afraid you might be out of luck here. I won't claim to know all the odds and ends of weird events in 10 years of SE history, but I very much doubt there's a way for you to get that reputation back. There's two problems to this. The moderators and/or SE employees have absolutely nothing but your word to prove that it was actually your roommate that did ...

Why is that happening? What's meaning of that? Those users you see with 1 rep are actually suspended for a certain time and for certain reason. You will see on profile page of those users a text like this, This account is temporarily suspended for [a reason]. The suspension period ends on [date]. Reason and time can vary which you can see on the page I ...

Its to give everyone fair chance to catch up in reputation race. I mean everyone doesn't gets more then 200 rep in single day. It also save from trolls. Sometimes user can cheat in reputation by making different accounts (Which can be cached or sometimes not). On the side note reputation here means the trust you earn by the form of privileges. By doing this ...

Your question actually had an additional two upvotes (+10) and two downvotes (-4) [at the time of writing]. So the positive score (1) remains apparently the same but isn't just (+1) it's actually (+3/-2) which is a net +1. This would be the difference you are seeing. Probably 2 upvotes and a downvote for a net +8 rep gain. You can always visit your ...

According to this related answer on Meta Stack Exchange the reputation gained from the votes on a deleted post is not removed if it's at least 60 days old and has a score of at least 3. Reputation changes from bounties, votes (both up and down), and acceptances on deleted posts (including answers to a deleted question) are nullified. (Exception: ...

Looking at the respective page in the help center, it says: You can earn a maximum of 200 reputation per day from any combination of the activities below. Bounty awards, accepted answers, and association bonuses are not subject to the daily reputation limit. And in fact you have an accepted answer in your reputation changes this day, that's why you're ...

Have you checked your reputation log extensively enough? You get -2 when someone downvotes you, so that SF&F post got 2 upvotes and 1 downvote, resulting in +20-2 = +18 for you and 1 upvote for the answer. The second case of getting -2 for changing the accepted answer is probably due to the fact that you get +2 for accepting an answer, but not if it's ...

The user's question did indeed get a downvote, as can be seen by any user with the privileges for showing the vote differences on question: The reason he didn't get a reputation change from the downvote but only from the two upvotes is likely that the downvote was the first vote he got and since a user's reputation can't sink below 1, it resulted in no ...

If you reach a day's reputation limit of 200, every additional reputation point you gain that day will be entirely lost in the empty void of nothingness forevermore. They will not be netted back on the next day (which might undermine the whole point of a reputation limit). There are some things, though, which are exempt from this limit and they're listed in ...

I suspect its because you deleted a question with 3 downvotes on it: You can view your reputation changes here: https://movies.stackexchange.com/users/43257/natural?tab=reputation

No, those votes won't be erased. Votes are only erased in case of voting fraud (massively voting on posts from specific other users) and when a user deletes their account. I looked for an authoritative answer on Meta Stack Exchange but all I could find was Do votes get canceled if voting privilege is lost?.

Generally I don't like this because ID requests are self serving. Rarely do 2 users have the same recollection and there is no grantee that how a self answered ID Request is asked is going to found by anyone else looking for the same title (especially when it's easily google-able the asker is just being lazy). Assuming however we are talking about this ...

I think the limit is as high as it needs to be. It's actually very tricky to hit the daily limit if you don't get any of your questions or answers featured in the Hot Network Questions tab (which the question you edited in was, all day for that matter). At the point I'm writing this answer there have been 225 votes cast all week. Even if all those voters ...
