Btw, it is not really a traumatic experience to me, because I would like more to have more professional accounts in my firsts. I've even planned to ask the SE to separate my area51 and MSE accounts to a secondary SE account (which had been probably rejected).

So, I am just curious, how has my area51 reputation suddenly fallen to around 1379 from around 2200?

Periodically rep counts are refreshed in Area 51, rep points for deleted proposals fall off as they don't exist any longer. It is not unusually for a long time participant to lose 1/3 or 1/2 of their rep. I don't keep that close of an eye on mine but I believe it was over 5,000 and fell to around 3,000 about 3 weeks ago. I think there may be some old posts still around this, but I did not look.
