Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

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
