I was browsing my reputation audit and noticed this (which looks like a nice new feature not yet mentioned anywhere) in the footer:
rep cap was reached on 16 days rep cap was exceeded on 22 days
Now this puzzles me. I couldn't find any definition of "reached" vs "exceeded" on meta, but at least common sense would tell me that I can not exceed the rep cap without having reached it first, so the first number should be equal to or greater than the second.
Could someone shed some light on how the above statistics are actually calculated? And, following on that, which of / how do these numbers relate to the Epic and Legendary badges?
