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

I noticed that the reputation from the main site carried over to meta on Gaming (at least the first upvote), I guess that doesn't work the other way around, right?

Is it then impossible to have a meta reputation higher than the site reputation?

Did you read the faq on the per-site meta? I highly recommend it.

Here's a link to the webapps meta faq.

relevant section:

Reputation here is entirely derived from the parent website, and synchronized hourly. Your reputation here, is the same as your reputation on the parent website. Votes here do not affect your reputation on the parent site.

(However, please note that offensive penalties, if levied by the community through spam or offensive votes on your posts here, will affect your reputation on the parent website.)

The meta reputation IS whatever the site reputation is.

Reputation from the parent site is transferred to [its] meta hourly.

But badges are earned separately on the meta site.
