What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I have exceeded the daily rep limit. Why is this possible, not that I am complaining. :)

If I look at today, in SO I see 218, a couple up voted answers, accepted answer and a down vote.

Can someone please explain.

By "today" you mean you actually clicked the "today", right? – mmyers Mar 31 '10 at 21:56
Yes, under my account. – Dustin Laine Mar 31 '10 at 21:58

You've got 228 with 4 accepted answers and 1 downvote. Actually, you need another 32 points to even hit the rep limit, now that the +15 from accepted answers is immune.

That is what I was missing, I did not know that accepted answers were immune. Is there a way to see your actual applied rep, or do you just exclude the accepted answer items? Thanks – Dustin Laine Mar 31 '10 at 22:04
@durilai - there's always the rep report: – Marc Gravell Mar 31 '10 at 22:10
@Durilai, there use to be a reputation break-down page during the Great Recalc, but it seems to have disappeared. edit: @Marc, oh there it is. – Earlz Mar 31 '10 at 22:12
That has the accepted answers also, so just a manual exclusion. More curious than anything. Thanks – Dustin Laine Mar 31 '10 at 22:12
