How does “Reputation” work?

I am new to this, I also don't know how to ask question but probably I think I get my answer here, In SO I answered this question I want to make transparent listview in android and someone upvoted it but my reputation on that is 0 instead of 10. So I can't understand what happened?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I always wondered, why do old regular users with high reputation (more than 6K for OP) use names like "user123456"? – Idolon Dec 5 '11 at 14:13
@Idolon - post it as a question on meta... – Oded Dec 5 '11 at 14:17
@Idolon - That could be a feature request. After a certain amount of rep, the system would be like Er, let's get you name there chief. There ya are. *pat on the butt* – Paul Bellora Dec 5 '11 at 14:38
@Oded Done. meta.stackexchange.com/q/114873/158912 – Idolon Dec 5 '11 at 16:21
@KublaiKhan Can you pls repost it as answer on the question I just created? – Idolon Dec 5 '11 at 16:22
@KublaiKhan - The mortarboard badge does that. – Oded Dec 5 '11 at 16:27
@Oded - Even the butt pat? Impressive. Then we should expand this feature so that thereafter the system occasionally insults your poor choice of a name. – Paul Bellora Dec 5 '11 at 16:34

You seem to have reached the reputation cap for normal votes. This is 200 per any single day.

See the community FAQ:

You can earn a maximum of +200 reputation from upvotes in any given day. Accepted answers and bounties are counted separately (source).
