Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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've found some questions and those two badges "Epic" and "Legendary" regarding the "daily reputation cap". What is it and how can I hit it?

The maximum amount of reputation you can earn in one day from upvotes and approved suggested edits is 200. Any reputation you receive beyond that no longer awards any points.

You can still earn rep by winning a bounty, accepting an answer, or having one of your answers accepted, and downvotes will still count against you.

I think this has been changed a bit, but don't have the reference handy. – Lance Roberts Nov 19 '13 at 21:31
If you can still earn rep how is that a cap? – i3arnon Dec 28 '13 at 21:24
@I3arnon Well, you won't any longer receive reputation for simple upvotes. Otherwise, once you asked a clever question, your reputation would immediately go through the roof ;) This is sort of a cool-down. And the reputation you still can get should keep you encouraged in continuing to help others. – Nicolas Oct 1 '14 at 15:21
@Nicolas yeah, I get that now. I was a newbie back then. – i3arnon Oct 1 '14 at 15:30
