Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

I have reached the rep cap for today, I understand that my reputation cannot go any further (with exception to accepted answers). However what I am curious about is how it affects the badges I can earn?

For instance, my C# stats currently stands at 354. If my C# answers are being up voted during my phase of exceeding the reputation cap, does this also stop votes towards this badge or does it take into account any additional votes even though I have hit the cap?

Upvotes are not capped, only the reputation is capped.

Upvotes on your answers still count towards your tag badges.
