My statistics say I've made 187 rep from 2009-11-13 00:00:00Z to 2009-11-13 23:59:59Z on

But since the last few answers I seem to keep receiving   rep. Why?

Weird rep

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You're at your rep cap. Dupe: – JSONBog Nov 13 '09 at 19:57
The cap is at 200 not 187 right? – dtb Nov 13 '09 at 19:58
The cap is also horribly buggy. You're at your rep cap. Don't worry about it. – JSONBog Nov 13 '09 at 19:59
But shouldn't I receive "0" rep for the answers then, not ""? – dtb Nov 13 '09 at 20:00
Would you rather have 0 added to your reputation or nothing added to your reputation? Is the distinction really so confusing? – JSONBog Nov 13 '09 at 20:01
It confused me enough to post here. And, buggy or not, 187 is pretty far away from 200. – dtb Nov 13 '09 at 20:03
Well, in reality you're probably not really very far off from 200, unless you do a lot of downvoting. Do you do a lot of downvoting? – JSONBog Nov 13 '09 at 20:04
I've made 2 downvotes today. My statistics for from 00:00 to 23:59 today contain one red box with "1" in the first row and "-2" in the second row. – dtb Nov 13 '09 at 20:07
Well then you've probably gained 198 rep today, and the rep page isn't showing it right. That's always what happens. It happens to everyone. Like I said: big ol' dupe. – JSONBog Nov 13 '09 at 20:10
@Hellbog: Ok, thanks. – dtb Nov 13 '09 at 20:11

That only happens if you've hit your daily cap; if your time zone is not UTC, your day is different from the server's day.

Doesn't Z stand for UTC? – dtb Nov 13 '09 at 19:59
Yes, Z means 'Zulu Time' or zero time, which is TZ=0, or UTC. – pavium Nov 13 '09 at 20:26
