When a question is deleted or hidden, do users who answered keep the points from voting and best answer?

Best answer

No. Currently the system works like this:

If you got up-votes or best answer, then you lose all points you got from those votes.
If you got down-votes then you don't gain the points back that you lost.

The reasoning is that if a bad question/answer is deleted it's a good idea for the user to keep the penalty. Hopefully they learn not to break rules again :)

That's just how the software works at the moment. When the next version comes out I may have more control over the points and might do something different. I'd rather have a way to "lock" the threads like on forums, to make sure the user saw what they did wrong.
