What happens to my reputation when I delete a question from me?

I ask this because there are some issues that could be better prepared. Or is it better to edit them and improve them?

If you delete them, any reputation (upvotes/downvotes) accrued from them is removed. Whether to remove your questions or just edit them is entirely your call if there are no answers; if there are already upvoted answers, however, the system will not let you delete those questions.

    There are some time restrictions to losing the rep from deletion. You don't lose rep if your post is > 60 days old and has a score of 3+. – rm -rf Aug 20 '16 at 3:43
