How does "Reputation" work?
Stack Overflow has existed since 2008. Until now it's been about 4 years, so about 1460 days. With maximum 200 reputation per day, that means since the beginning of SO, the maximum reputation is about 292k for a "genius as god" user.
- How is it possible to have a user with more than 300K reputation?
- Does this mean that Stack Overflow rules have changed during its history?
- Did the one time "accept" per question with 5 more reputation than normal votes lead to all the differences?
