In short, your entire contribution has been either inappropriate or off-topic. Of the six answer you've posted, 4 have already been flagged as comments and the remaining two have been flagged for deletion at least once and have attracted a downvote apiece. Simply put, this site isn't intended for discussion, it's intended for Q+A. Literally the first line ...

Thanks for introducing me to a world of science fiction I couldn't imagine I just joined this specific StackExchange about a month ago. I don't think there is a single post by you that I haven't read. Your posts really (and I mean really) made me enjoy this site. I didn't realize how in-depth Star Wars really is, and to be honest, you turned me into a ...

I shall assume this is au revoir rather than goodbye.

Unfortunately, as always acceptances are wholly the OP's decision. People can accept answers which are 100% wrong, or not accept answers at all, and there's nothing anyone else can do about it. "Vandalism" on SE is normally used to refer to actions on posts. A user's posts are licensed to SE, so if they vandalise those we can take action to stop them. But ...

I'm not a moderator here, but I see no problem with this. This user sees him or herself as an expert on a specific topic relevant to our site. They've posted numerous answers that seem comprehensive and knowledgeable (at least on the surface; I haven't had a chance to read them in detail yet, and I likely don't know enough about Superman to accurately judge ...

As one who specializes in story ID questions, I'd find it very useful to have all of the correctly answered ID questions so marked. DVK mentioned three kinds of evidence for an "unequivocally correct answer". Let me mention a fourth and even more unequivocal kind: when the OP accepts the answer verbally in the form of a comment, without formally accepting it....

Let's look at their profile. Website: manofsteelanswers.com Nothing wrong here. That's exactly what the field is for.

Awww. The internet is a strange place. I really don't know you, or anything about you. And yet I'm quite sad about this. You're contributions to the Harry Potter tag have been outstanding and I have learnt a lot. Certainly, when I joined, it was clear I was in the company of a profoundly knowledgeable individual and whenever I saw DVK at the end of an ...

You gave thanks to a lot of people in your farewell post,1 but the biggest one of all should be to you rather than from you. Thank you, DVK for your generally very high-quality questions and answers over more than 4 years on this site (recently I mentioned several of these among my nominations for best posts of the quarter) for your friendliness and good ...

I'm sorry to see you leave. I regret the fact that we butted heads, but I have enjoyed the times when we got along. You're a great guy, and you have been an enormous asset to the site. I hope you come back, and sooner than later. SF&F owes you a debt of gratitude. May the Force be with you.

Getting -2 from a 'User was removed' means that you got +2 from that user before the deletion of their account. The easiest way I can think of for this to happen would be: you accepted one of their answers However, other sequences of events that might cause a net +2 rep gain include: they upvoted one of your questions and you downvoted three of their ...

Is there a way to look this up? Not really. Past usernames aren't recorded on (the publicly visible parts of) a user's account. You might possibly be able to get some of this info using Data.SE, or by trawling through old comments addressed to the user and hoping to get lucky - but it would be frowned upon (see below). Is there a list? No. And this is ...

I am sad to see you go, and I hope you won't be gone long. I have enjoyed learning from your many answers on this site (especially Star Wars). Thank you for your contributions -- your site reputation is well deserved. On the bright side, your exile means you won't beat me to answering Star Wars questions like you have a tendency to do. Your answers have ...

This user is presently suspended. When their suspension ends, their reputation score will automatically be reinstated and recalculated if their answers and questions have been up or down - voted.

The saying goes... ...and so they must May I say THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING @DVK! You've contributed so very much to this site and made it a much more knowledgeable place. So, for now I say and remember to In the mean time, we shall all await the

As someone who has changed usernames in the past, I'd say this, It's 100% your call. I changed mine from my original username when I joined this specific SE and added a notice on my profile to let people, from other SEs who know me, know that it's same old me. It's a feature provided to you by SE and you don't need community consensus or discussion to do ...

Other than leaving a comment resembling something like: Are you [this user with a similar name]? If so, you might want to merge your accounts, otherwise you'll lose the reputation and privileges gained by the other account There's nothing we ("we" being everybody who isn't an SE employee) can or, indeed, should do. Users have the right to choose how ...

There is no warning, and the details are not public even to mods, but it takes several questions (5-7?) downvoted and closed or deleted, and very few upvotes. If you have downvoted or closed questions, take them as a warning.

I hope you find what you're looking for and wish you the best.

You're looking at the reputation of the users in this calendar month, August. Since this user gave a bounty, their reputation in the last month has fallen. Due to the numbers, it's evident that they probably gave a 200 reputation bounty (on this) and got one downvote.

Deleted candidates is not a scenario well-supported nor one we have any intention of encouraging. I manually patched up the list of winners, which should be sufficient to indicate what happened. But we will not modify votes or alter any other data connected to the election (that is: We're not going to create fake users with fake votes winning fake ...

This (probably) isn't a bug. This issue was raised recently on MSE; in a comment on one of the answers, animuson said: The message didn't change. You were probably looking at your profile on Meta, which doesn't retrieve the sub-reason from the parent site and just doesn't display one. I'm honestly not sure whether this is considered a bug or a by-design....

Regardless of who the user is, if the suggested edit changes anything about the original intentions of the poster, I reject it. If the edits are things like spelling, grammar, or formatting, I'd let it through. There is no fool-proof way for me to know that Null2 is really the same person as Null, so I'm not going to assume that they are the same person. ...

Per your comment, this is probably the answer you're talking about and this should then be your old user account. You can either merge your accounts or just stop using this one and try to log into your old one with the account recovery feature.

Nope. There isn't really. As long as all of the comments are helpful and not too chatty, and otherwise in keeping with the purpose of comments, we don't want to limit it. New helpful comments are always encouraged. Why would we want to limit how helpful a user can be? As for editing, the system allows users with 2,000+ reputation to edit as often as they ...

Both of your answers are about how you feel and your opinion. This site isn't for discussion or opinions; it's for verifiable factual answers. I wouldn't have banned you for it, and I don't know if you've been banned, but they're very low-quality answers for this site.

Process As Jonah has pointed out, if you wish to delete your account you need to contact the SE team using the "Contact Us" link, which can also be found below. What happens next? Given that you've accrued a reasonable amount of votes for your questions (as well as voting up and down on a number of questions), it's quite likely that your account won't be ...
