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'm a bit curious why you even got the 3, as that would put you at 203 for the day. – animuson May 18 '12 at 5:30
@animuson Yes that's weird. – Yannis May 18 '12 at 5:31
@animuson Off the top of my head, maybe downvotes he cast? – waiwai933 May 18 '12 at 5:33
@waiwai933: Those aren't supposed to be counted towards the daily limit. See this question. – animuson May 18 '12 at 5:35

You've hit the rep cap for the day.

then how come +3 ? what is 3 reputation means ? – Lucifer May 18 '12 at 5:26
what you mean by rep cap? – Romil Kumar Jain May 18 '12 at 5:28
@Romil You can earn up to 200 reputation daily from upvotes and suggested edits (excluding rep from having your answer accepted) – Yannis May 18 '12 at 5:29
@yannis, it means if I got more than 200 reputation from upvotes then what will happen for the reputation of further upvotes. – Romil Kumar Jain May 18 '12 at 5:42
@Romil It's a daily limit, you can only earn 200 reputation per UTC day. Every upvote after that doesn't earn you reputation, you can still earn badges though. – Yannis May 18 '12 at 5:44
