Q: Increase in unexplained downvotes on (old) questions/answers?

Alec RheaI recently received a downvote without comment on a question and all of its answers, which are good independent of the value of my question imo. I’ve also had two other questions receive similar singular downvotes with the (good) answer on the latter question also downvoted. I had written all t...

Moderators and users with 25k+ reputation can have access to site analytics where they can see whether there was an increase in number of downvotes. I have created also two simple SEDE queries which show number of downvotes per month and per day. — Martin Sleziak 2 hours ago
When looking at those results, you should keep in mind that the data in SEDE are only updated once a week. Of course, with SEDE one can do also further analysis - if somebody has time to look into that. (For example, it can be checked which users get largest numbers of downvotes, whether there are more downvotes in some tags than others, etc.) — Martin Sleziak 2 hours ago
Much appreciated Martin, looking at those statistics it appears as though things are on par for the recent trends. — Alec Rhea 2 hours ago
My personal impression is that also number of close votes was recently higher than usual. I don't know a way to count close votes directly, but they are reflected in close vote reviews - here are the numbers per month and per day. Feel free to ping me in chat if some other similar stats might be useful. — Martin Sleziak 8 secs ago
The table Votes does not contain close votes. According to the FAQ about SEDE - Database schema documentation for the public data dump and SEDE:
> effective 2013-06-25: Close votes are only stored in table: PostHistory
I might be mistaken, but I think that from PostHistory I can only find out when the post was closed. (So close votes that did not lead to closure do not appear there. For example, close votes which lead to these reviews: mathoverflow.net/review/close/111918 or mathoverflow.net/review/close/112051 )
If some statistics similar to the ones I have already provided, I might try to create a query if I am able to. (My SQL skills are not great.) Or we might ask more experienced users in the SEDE chatroom for advice.
