Today, I reached 200 rep, but 20 of them came from a now-deleted post (a duplicate answer posted really close in time to the first answer). I stopped getting rep from my answers after this was deleted and I hit 180 reputation on posted answers today (180 + the 20 from the deleted = the cap of 200).
After a rep recalculation, I will lose the 20 points from that deleted answer (I'm pretty sure). But will the system detect that I made more than 20 points after that and give me any rep from after that?
The only reason I care is because I want to reach 20k before the Boston Dev Days...
- 200 rep earned to hit cap
- 3 more upvotes for 30 "potential rep"
- Answer deleted wipes out 2 upvotes to drop down to 180 rep.
- Rep limit after recalc should come out to 200 with 1 upvote left over due to cap.
