Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

If you get upvoted on a question, then the question gets moved over to another site - the original site deducts it from your total but does not remove it from your daily limit.

For example.

(Picture taken whilst today button is pressed - this starts from my first bit of rep today 4/3/10)

The red line is approx at the time that this question was moved from to

I have clicked the today button and checked on Jon Skeet's reputation tracker, and they both say the same thing.

I guess the reason for this is either a bug or because I can undelete my answer and get the reputation - I am not really that sure and just thought it was worth asking.

It'll probably get straightened out if you get recalculated for some reason (like asking a moderator). – mmyers Mar 4 '10 at 20:34
@mmyers - To be honest, I don't really care to much about 30 reputation, just curious if bug or by design (and if by design - why? ) – William Hilsum Mar 4 '10 at 20:41

The adjustments for the reputation cap on the source (and destination) site will happen as part of the new reputation changes, so you'll get back those other votes which didn't count post-cap before the delete.
