There is no rep cap. You just need to do the things that are pointed out underneath each item –  Pëkka Dec 19 '12 at 10:56

@Pekka - in the descriptions, it mentions rep cap. I believe that this is what sfah was referring to :) –  Ren Dec 19 '12 at 10:57
    
I think we need to earn just 200 reputation to earn this instead of rep cap. See this –  hims056 Dec 19 '12 at 10:59

When in doubt about any term, refer to the glossary. Rep cap is mentioned there as well. –  Shadow Wizard Dec 19 '12 at 11:01

The rep cap, is the threshold for reputation. You can not get more that 200 reputation from votes in a single day.

I think we should get rid of this. –  SiPlus Dec 19 '12 at 11:24

Whitout the repcap some people wouldn't have a life outside of stackexchange. –  Toon Krijthe Dec 19 '12 at 11:26
    
That's not bad. Higher user activity means less time to get an answer. –  SiPlus Dec 19 '12 at 11:28

Great irony, this answer just pushed me onto the rep cap. –  Toon Krijthe Dec 19 '12 at 11:30
    
I hit the rep cap 2 days ago, before Winter Bash :( –  SiPlus Dec 19 '12 at 11:31

Rep cap means you can only earn 200 rep/day from upvote .. note that accept and bounty isn't counted.

But I suspect you will get the rep cap hat on just reaching 200 rep/day check this question

Just Jesting! awarded before hitting rep cap
