Today I just saw a notification telling me that I got down vote. I looked for it, and I found that it was my up vote that made down vote.

It was really frustrating, because it shouldnt happen this, because the up and down votings is supposed to be a personal discion. Why when I down vote or up vote something, I get down votes?! It doesnt seem faire, in my point of view, but why is that?

  • What sort of notification? So far as I'm aware, SE never pushes a notification on downvotes. – goldPseudo Dec 31 '18 at 20:37
  • @goldPseudo Then how come I got the message that I got a down vote for an up vote of mine?! Its really weird. – Alex A Jan 1 '19 at 13:06
  • @goldPseudo Actually, I only get red colors as notifications... – Alex A Jan 1 '19 at 21:52

You get -1 rep when you downvote an answer. You do not get any loss of reputation for upvoting. See https://islam.stackexchange.com/help/whats-reputation
