I am just trying to figure out how many days I have capped with this code in /users/rep-report

javascript:alert(document.body.innerHTML.match(/+(?:\d{4,}|[2-9]\d{2})/g).length)

Edit: see my answer for the correction

I got 29 days with 200+ but can I assume I've capped on 29 days?

For example following day, I got 218, Its not really capped, because 4 are accepted answers, they can consider in separate box with new rule.

Good question.. –  dmckee Mar 20 '10 at 14:20

I'd like to know how this works as well, I wonder how "hitting the cap" is determined when calculating the badges, e.g. if you received 40 answer upvotes but 1 downvote at the end of the day leaving 198 rep, is that "capped"? Example: codepad.org/7WO4oIoZ –  Nick Craver Mar 20 '10 at 17:46

I think the answer is the reverse of the accepted here, running this on my rep report:

javascript:alert(document.body.innerHTML.match(/\+(?:\d{4,}|[2-9]\d{2})/g).length)

Gives me exactly 150 days, and I just hit 200 rep for the day, granting me the badge (the latest greasemonkey script shows 4 more days remaining, if you're curious (profile link)).

For a view of my rep report right after the badge, here's it is for analysis:
http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=Lneqdxve

It seems that the calculation is just 200+ points per day, from any source. I don't have quite 150 of 200+ rep from raw upvote days, so it can't be based on pure votes, at least not from what I'm seeing.

Here are two of the days in the above rep report to show bounty/accepted being included:

+280 had to include 250 from the bounty, only +30 from votes:

 2   1495589 (10)
 2   1495589 (10)
 9   1495589 (250)
 2   1424659 (10)
-- 2009-09-30 rep +280  = 1983  

+245 had to include 75 from accepted, only +170 from votes:

This is correct - cap badges are based on the "exceeded" calculation (get 200+ points from anywhere), not the "reached" calculation (which is what Jeff is talking about in the cited comment). Oh, and congratulations, by the way. –  Grace Note Jun 22 '10 at 12:21
    
Yeah, that's correct. My previous answer was just an wrong assumption from Jeff's comment. I've deleted now. Thanks. And Congratulations! –  YOU Jun 22 '10 at 12:41

Imm, Jeff said here, rep cap calculation does not include bounties. So, looks like its changed now. –  YOU Jun 22 '10 at 12:59
