I wonder why my rep counter stopped adding up, even though I got some up-votes on my question. Here is my question I asked 1 hour ago: Why do we usually use `||` not `|`?

+55 24 mins ago upvote Why do we usually use || not |?

I got only 55 reps while I got 18 upvotes. Is it a bug? Or is it because I got so many reps in a short time?

You've hit the rep cap, basically. You can only earn a maximum of 200 rep through upvotes alone in any UTC day.
