Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

Why my reputation is not changing though I am still getting upvotes?

I just upvoted… and your rep increased by 10. Nice answer, btw :) – Jarrod Dixon Jun 1 '10 at 5:23
@Jarrod Dixon true it did, but my reputation did not change at all for the upvotes I received… – nas Jun 1 '10 at 5:28

You probably hit the daily reputation limit (the "rep cap"):

A maximum of +200 reputation may be gained per day. Accepted answers are immune to this cap as are bounties.

Or, if these upvotes are on community wiki posts:

Posts which are marked as "Community Wiki" do not change reputation on up or down votes (but you can still earn badges).

Actually, it hasn't changed at all in the last 4-5 days so I don't think its a per day cap issue. Though it did add 100 points when I joined meta – nas Jun 1 '10 at 5:23
@nas: It has, if you meant on Stack Overflow. – Gnome Jun 1 '10 at 5:26
Thanks, yes that was a community wiki post. – nas Jun 1 '10 at 5:32
