Today I received the maximum amount of points possible on StackOverflow - 199 (?).

I answered questions and got 21 up votes 1 down vote and down-voted one answer.

I know it sounds a bit picky but why didn't I receive 200 points (and a badge)?

The same thing happened to me. It is a conspiracy. The extra points are dropped off and funneled into Jon Skeet's reputation instead. –  ベレアー アダム Dec 10 '09 at 13:57

Congrats on hitting the rep cap! –  Troggy Dec 10 '09 at 15:56

You only recieved 199 points because you downvoted once (bringing your rep down 1 point).

You have still hit the cap and you'll recieve your Mortarboard badge in a few hours.
