How does “Reputation” work?

Upvotes for my answers have always brought me 10 points. But over the past couple of days, it looks like they're only bringing me 5 points.

Did something change?

I hardly think the mentioned question is an exact duplicate! In fact, I know how Reputation works. But was just unable to correctly interpret what I was seeing in this case. – Jonathan Wood Jan 3 '13 at 20:15
@JonathanWood - The answer for that community FAQ fully answers your question... that's why it got marked as duplicate :) – Oded Jan 3 '13 at 20:18

1 Answer 1

You hit the reputation cap of 200 a day.

You had 195 reputation from upvotes, then the answer got upvoted - you got the 5 to take you to 200.

Ah, that must be it. I thought I was getting several +5s but, after checking, I see some of them were in fact questions. So that explains why I haven't seen more points today from my other answers. Thanks. – Jonathan Wood Jan 3 '13 at 20:06
