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

If person A creates a Q or A, then person B comes in and changes it, the percent contributed will be displayed next to the original posters name.

How does that affect rep? And is there a certain level where the original poster would no longer accumulate rep for votes?

It doesn't, other than that after 6 edits a post becomes communitiy wiki and no longer accumulates rep.

Percentage is only shown on community wiki posts, which by definition don't generate any rep.
