I'm very new to the stackoverflow community, so I apologize if this is a duplicate or inappropriate question (I tried to search for answers beforehand but couldn't find them).
I noticed that, on stackoverflow.com, I have 4 up votes on one question and 1 up vote on another, but my reputation is only 43. Is this because I have sustained some kind of penalty I am not aware of? Or does the reputation just take time to calculate sometimes?
So it looks like the fact that I edited the Trace Table question more than 6 times caused it to become CW, negating any reputation I might receive on up-votes to it. I'll be sure not to do this in the future!
