Yeah, one minute I gain 20 ARP and the next they just dissapear nowhere to been seem. Is there any way to find out where the mass downvote have occured?

And no I didn't spam or anything like that at all.

Thank you :)

Sadly, there is no way for you to see what was downvoted. I looked into your history and I see nothing of note that lost you any ARP.

It might have been a weird bug, but you did not get any negative ARP from your latest posts!

Thank you for having a look, you do have a point that it could just be a bug and then the ARP points shows up again later on :)

No problem! If they don't appear, do message me again!

Note that even as a moderator its almost impossible to ever notice lost ARP on someone's post from downvotes because:

          - If your post is in negative votes, you don't actually lose ARP. You can go from 0 to -50 downvotes and you will never lose ARP from that. 

          - ARP is lost if someone downvotes your posts that are already upvoted multiple times. 

Let's take your profile for example:

     

You have 1176 points. Let's take..... this thread:

33 upvotes, yes? Well let's downvote it.

Now let's take a look at your profile again:

Already 2 points lost just from 1 of my downvotes.

 

It's possible that one or more people could've retracted their upvotes and you lost your accumulated points from that, or someone might've downvoted other threads or posts of yours, but its impossible to actually find downvoters since its anonymous, and its nothing much you can do against that.

 Also yes, it's very possible it could've been a bug. Many people had temporary broken counters on their "ARP STATUS" and either the Consecutive Daily Logins or/and Vote on Content were set on 0 (not counting the daily login reset when it goes to 0 after it resets from 10 consecutive days logged in, since its normal). So if you had like 10-20 points from those two, the counter could've temporarily bugged out and made it look like you lost points. If that's the case, you never really lose points from that since it will always go back to its original number and get your points back.

Seriously, thank you so much for explaining that, now I understand what's going on :)
