If you were awarded a best answer for a question, will you lose your points if the question gets removed for violating community guidelines?

    Depends.    If your answer was reported as well then you could lose points.  But assuming that no one reported it then no.

    No, you keep your points unless your answer gets reported.

    No, because that wouldn't be fair. If your answer did not violate the guidelines, then there should be no reason for you to lose any points, just because the question itself was deleted. Please ignore all the thumb downs CarolOkla gets, her answer is correct.

    No. You keep those best /favorite answer points. Your ANSWER did not violate EITHER the CG or the terms of service contract of a specific country.

    No. Your points are your points. You only lose points when a post of yours is reported enough to be removed (which sometimes happens to answers, before the question they were responding to is also reported enough to be removed).
