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

I wonder if someone is experiencing the same as me. My last +2 reputation coming from an edit was last December 20th.

I have edited about 20 more posts since that date like, for example, DataGridView validation doesn't work or Getting the _id of the rows in ListVew right (this is from today). I'm not getting reputation from those edits despite being Approved as you can see.

Is Stack Overflow experiencing some problems with the reputation system?

Thanks in advance

Note: Reputation from answers and questions are working fine.

this was fixed recently:, and you were one of the 13 users to be affected - you'll probably lose about 94 reputation next time you recalc too, if you haven't already – Jason Plank Jan 7 '12 at 1:24
Oh no! My precious reputation! – César Jan 7 '12 at 14:09

You can only earn up to 1,000 reputation from suggesting edits, ever. You are well past that. You will no longer receive reputation from edits. From scanning your profile, it actually appears that you've earned ~20 extra reputation that you shouldn't have. Perhaps a miscalculation, but not a big deal. Just know you've passed your limit.

Well thanks, I didn't know about the 1,000 limit – César Jan 6 '12 at 23:40

According to How do suggested edits work? there is a cap of 1000 rep from edits. Is it possible that you've hit this cap?
