When you have committed to a proposal and this proposal is deleted, why am I still commited to it?

It's not deleted yet, only closed. It'll be auto-deleted 30 days from its close date, at which point it will also disappear from your profile. Letting everyone go and uncommit because it's now closed ...

Is there a bug in the "total reputation" tab when committed users are shown?

The "total reputation" number will only ever match the user's reputation to the right if they have not referred any users to the proposal. The number is actually a calculation of that user's ...

I just lost 1k+ rep

I don't want to look at my reputation on A51, but the topbar makes me!

This was an intentional change made in response to this request. Personally, I don't think either is significantly better than the other... but for the moment, this is by design.

Unordered list after sorting after 'newest'

This being Area 51, the sort order is determined by the original proposal date, not how long the resulting site has been active. Since proposals of the past were once allowed to exist over a very long ...
