I've looked around a fair bit on how the reputation system works, but I still can't understand how the situation I just ran into is possible:

I suppose I hit the cap, since I got 34 in rep out of 4 up-votes, but since accepted answers are "ignored"/"immune" against the cap, I should be able to reach 200+3*15 = 245 before capping, no?

Still don't get it :( I must have hit the limit at what point? And got what afterwards? –  aioobe May 21 '10 at 15:17

Hmm. that's possible... Still not clear to me how that comes into the picture? (but it's impressive that you could draw that conclusion). –  aioobe May 21 '10 at 15:18
    
@aioobe, deleted answers are not shown on the list, and which cause 235 and you have a downvote rep-cap give you +2 back, so its became 237 –  YOU May 21 '10 at 15:24
