I answered a certain question correctly on p-n-p transistors and doping in Phys.SE and the answer was accepted and voted up. I got +25 reputation for that. Today I came to know that the question has been migrated to Electrical Engineering.SE community. Side by side, I have lost 25 reputation for no valid reason. Are the events interlinked? Can the reputation be somehow gained back or is it lost forever?

    $\begingroup$ I feel your pain, having lost a few hundred rep to migrations myself. There will be other questions to answer, however ;) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Though, I would like to point out that there is a valid reason: the question wasn't on-topic here on Physics but was on EE. $\endgroup$
