if the user I am voting on (upvote) has hit the daily maximum, does my vote get rejected? i.e. the vote will not increment?

Go to StackOverflow, upvote Jon Skeet, and find out. – Macha Oct 17 '09 at 22:15

The vote is incremented, but no reputation is gained. So you can still see how many people actually like an answer, but it just doesn't help the poster's reputation.

ok so reputation (points) can't be gained, but badges can? Doesn't that basically mean that you can manipulate badges but not points? – user68183 Oct 17 '09 at 21:11
Yes, badges can be gained. I'm not sure how you'd "manipulate" badges though - the rep cap is to stop people from gaining a lot of rep (and thus power) really quickly, rather than to stop people from gaming the rep system (IMO, anyway). – Jon Skeet Oct 17 '09 at 21:34
(Indeed, if badges couldn't be gained and votes weren't counted, it would greatly disfavour those who post a lot of answers. I suspect I'd be stuck on very few badges...) – Jon Skeet Oct 17 '09 at 21:34
pfff, 1200 badges is nothing... :) – squillman Oct 18 '09 at 0:13
I hope you don't get any rep from my upvote, Jon. – Super Long Names are Hilarious Oct 18 '09 at 1:22
