It's a little confusing...

I voted on the bottom question but don't think I've touched the top one at all.

enter image description here

I have had the "reputation cap" tool-tip as in the question @Mat has just posted.

My first thought is that you downvoted an answer and then undid the vote. – Matthew Read Mar 8 '12 at 21:31
@MatthewRead, that's possible, but I don't think I did this evening ( I'm UTC ) and it definitely didn't show up like this earlier in the day. – ben is uǝq backwards Mar 8 '12 at 21:33
In my case all refer to posts I somehow interacted with: either I downvoted a question, or one of mine Community Wiki posts was voted on. – Arjan Mar 8 '12 at 21:49
@Arjan, in that case Matthew Read is probably correct; I probably unupvoted or undownvoted... it'd be too much of a co-incidence otherwise. – ben is uǝq backwards Mar 8 '12 at 21:51
It does show this 0 rep for questions I've downvoted here (and not un-downvoted). Tooltip on that 0 is wrong too, see meta.stackexchange.com/questions/125066/… – Mat Mar 8 '12 at 21:56
It's logging the 0 rep you lose from downvoting. It started happening sometime today. It looks like a bug. – The Community Mar 8 '12 at 22:05
The reputation calculation system is under major changes recently - can't avoid bug or two slipping through - moderator will probably pop in soon to explain. :) – Shadow Wizard Mar 8 '12 at 22:11
I get this when I downvote questions, could you verify? – Tom Wijsman Mar 8 '12 at 22:20
@TomWijsman, you want me to go around down-voting people? The bottom question I down-voted so probably. Sha Dow Wiz Ard +1, I figured it was something like that... – ben is uǝq backwards Mar 8 '12 at 22:25
@Ben: You could check whether you have down-votes on the freehand circled questions. – Tom Wijsman Mar 8 '12 at 22:28

up vote 8 down vote accepted

This did indeed change recently, we switched to an entirely different data source. What you're seeing is the result of up/downvotes, or changes that resulted in no rep.

We'll exclude changes that had no rep impact starting with the next build.
