This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You have reached the daily maximum limit of 200 reputation points. You cannot achieve more that that. Check the screenshot below. Please read the faq –  user162697 Aug 10 '11 at 1:10
And: Congratulations on that ;-) –  Joachim Sauer Aug 10 '11 at 6:36
@Joachim, I wasn't trying to boast! :/ –  mre Aug 10 '11 at 12:20
I didn't think so. It was an entirely non-ironic congratulation. –  Joachim Sauer Aug 10 '11 at 12:49

Because the top of your screenshot shows "198", it appears you hit the reputation cap on that day. You can earn a maximum of 200 reputation each day (excluding accepted answers and bounties) – all other reputation gain on that day after you hit the cap isn't counted.

Yes, yes I do. (Slightly.) –  Kevin Y Aug 10 '11 at 1:55

You reached the reputation cap, which is the daily limit for the reputation you can gain; you cannot get more than 200 with up-votes. You can gain more than 200 with accepted answers, and bounties.
