How does “Reputation” work?

I'm seeing odd behavior on SO. The last two upvotes I've received have been for a score of zero. For instance, Post1 I just got an upvote of 1, and Post2 I just got an upvote of 1 as well. My score did not reflect, and in the drop-down summary of my username at the top of SO it shows those two posts but with a score of 0 to the left.

Is there a reason for this??

You hit your rep cap. The cap is 200, doesn't count accepts. You have 260, 60 of which is accepts, leaving 200 from upvotes.

Congrats on hitting it btw

Wow, I did not know that! Very interesting. What happens to the non-counted upvotes? Do they just disappear, or do they perchance roll forward for the next day or something? I'm guessing the former, but figured I'd ask anyways. –  Thomas Stringer Nov 29 '11 at 21:28
    
If they would roll to the next day, Jon Skeet would likely hit the rep cap daily for 2 years without posting anything. No, this won't happen ;) By the way, based on your reputation history, you've hit it at least twice before. –  BalusC Nov 29 '11 at 21:31

It can be 1 of 2 things:

  1. your answer is (has become) Community Wiki
  2. you have passes the 200 rep limit for today

A quick look at your SO account shows it is 2)
