Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Apologies if this is a dupe...

Today on Christianity.SE, I reached the 200 rep cap. Then a question I answered got migrated to Philosophy.SE, along with ~70 of my rep. Since that time, I've had several more upvotes, but they continue to get 0 rep, as though I had still met the 200 rep cap.

Is this by design, or a bug?

If the answer is "Bug, but it's too insignificant to matter," that's fine, too. :)

Have you tried recalc-ing? – John Sep 21 '11 at 20:18

A rep recalc is now performed in these cases, syncing up the rep cap within 5 minutes of the migration being completed.

This is by design. It should all shake out with a rep recalc. If you go to you should see a button at the very bottom to request an immediate rep recalc, give that a shot.

Do note, though, that the recalc will trim off any other rep earned by other migrated / deleted questions and whatnot.
