Question Resolved: Rep and deleted posts

I was just wondering---what happens if I rep someone's post, and then they delete the post? Is the rep undone, or does it stay, but is no longer associated with any post? I'm just curious.

I have no idea. Let's run a test though. Go ahead and Rep me, then I'll delete this.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Will rep in 10 minutes. Make sure you know your current score. Will post when repped.

OK, have 1285 points now. So I'll go ahead and delete this and see what happens. But, I'm not sure how I'll respond if it's deleted.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

OK, I 'soft' deleted the thread which basically means it gets archived out of public view. Rep Points stay, thread title goes to 'N/A' in your listing meaning it no longer exists. But it doesn't change your total score.

Most threads are deleted in this manner. I'm sure the same is true for the threads physically removed though.

Oh, and I undeleted this thread after I did it.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

It's for the betterment of the community.

But this does bring up more questions. Like, what happens to your Rep points if someone Reps you and then gets banned? Do the points go away in that case?

So, any volunteers to Rep me and get banned to try it out?

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
