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

I thought this colum represented the total rep received on the question, but apparently not always. For example, John T has two votes on some question, plus an acceptance. The associated rep on his user page at the time I wrote this was indicates the rep is 570.

Is there a rule that would allow 10 + 10 + 15 = 570?

This result is not consistent with previous answers posted here

How is this possible? And no, I'm not envious, just curious. OK, maybe a bit envious ;-)

I believe there was a bounty on that question, which explains the spike in rep awarded to the accepted answerer.

Ah, I see the question mark shows it had a 550 bounty. So it turns out it's 570 instead of 585 due to some other reputation limiting thing happening? – DaveParillo Oct 15 '09 at 23:15
Yeah, maybe you don't get the 15 for an accepted answer if there is a bounty? – pkaeding Oct 15 '09 at 23:29
