I have been deducted points and the follow-through click shows a piece of text, which in situ has no downvote showing against it - in fact, it has an upvote that has not registered on the list of upvote/downvote. Is there a technical problem that others are experiencing with this?

It says on mine - "Note: only votes that contribute to your progress within the tier are shown"

So it looks like you only get to see the good things.

I looked earlier to see why I had two downvotes but couldn't find why. I don't think I've done anything to warrant losing ten points and am now rather put off from bothering with the immersion task.

This was the opposite problem: it was on the list of those that do count against you and I had over 100 upvotes in the tier, so it did count - but when I clicked through to the 'problem' sentence it only showed as having upvotes and I couldn't see anything wrong with it. But either it has resolved itself since or some kind person gave me six votes to compensate, so now I can't see whether it still counted for the last tier or not. Maybe there's a delay on the correction, as there often is with progress points for immersion?

Well, a person can only give one upvote per any given translation, so one kind person couldn't have given you six upvotes. :) Even if the sentence had received 20 upvotes, the downvote would still show, so that doesn't explain your issue. I suggest sending a message to support to see if the staff can return your deducted points back to you.
