Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Weird thing, I'm not sure if it's intentional design, so I'm asking here. On one site, yesterday I reached rep cap but then some votes were cancelled saying "User was removed". Now, the weird thing is that those votes still seem to count towards the cap, effectively “limiting” me to a lower cap:

Weird rep cap

Is that correct?

Yes, this is intentional and by design. When something (a user or a post) is removed, the votes are removed from the day they are cast. Therefore they are subject to those days' repcaps and not the day they were removed.

So if you didn't repcap those days, then it will deduct from your total.

If you go to your reputation audit page, you will see that you have gained +200 yesterday.

Well, indicating +179 in the stats page is not a very clear way of telling me I gain +200 :) – F'x Jan 31 '13 at 8:02
Yeah, it's kinda counter-intuitive. But that's just the way it is. – Mysticial Jan 31 '13 at 8:03
Does that day count towards the epic/legendary badge? cc @animuson – Y ez Mar 16 at 3:05
@Yez I believe it does. But don't quote me on it. – Mysticial Mar 16 at 18:09
