What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

It appears that the more accepted moderator flags you raise, the more moderator flags you are allowed to raise each day, so could other activities be made consistent with this?

For example:

  • Could the reputation cap increase as your reputation grows, and it becomes evident you are not doing anything fraudulent? Maybe increase only within the certain tags where you have proved yourself?

This is a follow up to the question Increased Daily Limits With Increased Reputation

Reputation is not capped to prevent fraudulent behaviour. For one thing it's capped to make sure people still have a life besides SO. –  Bart Nov 9 '12 at 20:07

We were doomed before we started. We might just as well enjoy ourselves at the same time. –  ben is uǝq backwards Nov 9 '12 at 20:30

and it becomes evident you are not doing anything fraudulent?

That is not at all why we have a reputation cap. You should read up on What is the reasoning behind the reputation cap?
