How does “Reputation” work?

I can't see the reputation votes on the question where people voted me up. I can see it only in my profile. Is this intended?

Here is one example: Symfony Question: How to get/read the HTML content of a page?

In my profile says I got 10 reputation upvotes from my post there, but when I enter that question, I only see 1 upvote instead the actual 10 upvotes.

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.

"This question covers exactly the same content as ..." In the FAQ you must click in expand reputation in order to see how it works. I think its not very intuitive for new users which quickly searchs for the vote and reputation system. – xtrm Oct 1 '12 at 12:17

1 Answer 1

up vote 2 down vote accepted

Each answer upvote gives you ten rep points, question upvotes give you five. Each downvote takes away 2. Each acceptance gives you 15.

It's all covered here.

Aside: and questions about Stack Overlow itself (rather than programming) are meant to be asked on meta.
