Are accepts considered towards the 200 daily reputation that a user should get in a day that counts for the Epic or Legendary badge? That is if I have a day where I have 205 reputation but 30 of them are from accepted answers, will this day still be counted towards the 50 needed for the Epic badge?

You just need to earn 200 points in a UTC day; accepts, suggested edits, upvotes, accepting answers on your own questions, bounties, everything but the association bonus counts.

From the Badges FAQ on the Epic badge:

  • silver; awarded once; same family as Mortarboard (bronze), Legendary (gold)
  • Earned at least 200 reputation on 50 days
    • All reputation activities, including up and down votes, accepted answers, bounties, and suggested edits count towards this badge except for association bonuses, which do not count.
    • Each "day" lasts from midnight UTC to immediately before midnight, UTC; days are not counted in local time

@izomorphius at the bottom of stackoverflow.com/reputation it will tell exactly earned at least 200 reputation on [x] days – Some Helpful Commenter Jan 30 '13 at 17:00
@SomeHelpfulCommenter really helpful link. Thank you – izomorphius Jan 30 '13 at 17:04
@SomeHelpfulCommenter: Actually, previous bug reports have shown that value to be inaccurate. It's only an approximation. – animuson Jan 30 '13 at 17:56
@animuson oh I see well that's a bummer. – Some Helpful Commenter Jan 30 '13 at 21:43
