Losing my reputation when I downvote


  • Whenever I downvote a post, I lose a reputation (upvote) in return. For example, I have 83 reputation but when I downvote someone else's post, my reputation goes down to 82. Is this something commonly known in the forum that happens when you downvote? Or is it a bug, does anyone know why this happens to me when I downvote?

    Still no response after over a day... @SpecialOne or @King_Jamiu_10 would you guys be able to answer my question above?

    Hi,

    This is by design. When a user downvotes other users post they lose one reputation for that.
    So 1 downvote = -1 reputation for the downvoter!
