I'm sorry if this has already been asked but I can't find similar questions, so I'm shooting in the dark here:
I recently joined The Awkward Silence and was surprised about some recommended behaviors to adopt while reviewing on IPS. For instance, I used to comment on answers that didn't respect our policy and then recommend deletion/delete them. But after discussing with other members, I believe I've understand that it's better to comment and downvote but not delete those answers. So I've begun to do this, and the rep points began to fall (which is normal because I downvote other users' intervention).
Because of that, a question came to mind: how's that that we lose reputation while doing reviewing tasks, in the goal of improving this site?
I'm very new on meta so please feel free to edit / critique / give further explanation about the answer policy. :)
