How does “Reputation” work?

I've just received 8 upvotes for my answer, but I can only see +25 reputation; all other upvotes have no reputation increase.

Is this a delay in the reputation system's internal processes or is it expected behaviour?

It means that you met the 200 rep cap from upvotes for the day.

You'll start getting rep again after the day changes.

@sll, note that although you will not get any more reputation from upvotes today, you'll continue to get +15 reputation for each accepted answer. – Chris Frederick Sep 12 '11 at 18:59

You hit the reputation cap for the day. You can only gain 200 rep for upvotes per day.

Per your account page you have 215 for the day, 200 for upvotes and 15 for an accepted answer.

Thanks JNK! To be onest I wondered why 200 is limit because there are a lot of users which posting many great answers and 200 is too low bound, this is my point of view – sll Sep 12 '11 at 19:03
