## I know that when a person likes an answer, the contributor gets additional karma. But if that person then unlikes it, will you lose the karma you earned for the like? Thanks.

No.

#### Explanation:

You will not lose the amount of karma that you get when a person gives you a "like" if that person then unlikes the answer. Once someone hits that little red heart, the karma that you receive cannot be taken away by unclicking the "like" button.

The same is true if, for whatever reason, your answer to a question is deleted, meaning that you get to keep all the karma that you accumulated before the answer was deleted.

Bottom line $\to$ the amount of karma you have cannot decrease.
