I have only two zero scored questions and no answer. However I got +5 reputation by upvote of this (my) question. How can this happen?

Thank you in advance.

In the meta SE profile rep history, I could see downvote logs though it didn't affect my reputation. However that of SE chemistry doesn't show me any of them (only upvote).

It's probably because your question was also downvoted (do you have a -2 in your reputation list?):

Score = upvotes - downvotes. Hope this helps!

    $\begingroup$ Downvotes cannot cause reputation to drop below 1, which is why there is no -2 $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, but how did you get the screenshot? I can only see sum of upvote and downvote, not individually even in desktop version. $\endgroup$ Apr 15, 2018 at 0:18

    $\begingroup$ @KYHSGeekCode you can see the different counts after you surpass a reputation threshold. $\endgroup$ Apr 15, 2018 at 9:51
