I am just wondering because I received a couple of upvotes and marked a question as answered on Cross Validated and my rep didn't go up. I have no idea why it might have been frozen so I was just wondering. [the upvotes were on Cross Validated today]

You probably hit the rep cap. You can only gain 200 rep from upvotes per day; accepted answers don't count, though. –  Adam Rackis Jan 12 '13 at 18:59

@AdamRackis He didn't, but I also don't see a problem if we're talking about the 4th; he got two question upvotes and accepted something and got +12 for it –  Michael Mrozek Jan 12 '13 at 18:59
    
@MichaelMrozek No I'm taking about today. –  The_Cthulhu_Kid Jan 12 '13 at 19:00
    
@Bart The upvotes are still there but it seems my question became a CW. –  The_Cthulhu_Kid Jan 12 '13 at 19:03

@The_Cthulhu_Kid Yeah, removed my comment. I thought you were referring to another account. CW is the answer. –  Bart Jan 12 '13 at 19:07

The post you linked to is a Community Wiki post and upvotes (or downvotes) don't count on them.

The moderator converted it to CW. Only moderators can convert Questions to CW, while users can convert answers to CW by themselves by ticking the checkbox at the bottom-right of the answer field:

Thanks. How did it become community wiki? –  The_Cthulhu_Kid Jan 12 '13 at 19:02

@The_Cthulhu_Kid The moderator converted it to CW. :) By the way: only moderators can convert Questions to CW (while users can convert answers to CW by themselves). –  Alenanno Jan 12 '13 at 19:03
    
Excellent, thanks for that I missed it. –  The_Cthulhu_Kid Jan 12 '13 at 19:04
    
@The_Cthulhu_Kid Glad to be of service! –  Alenanno Jan 12 '13 at 19:04
