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

This is a little odd. I received seven points for receiving an upvote to my answer. Any reason? I don't think I've hit the daily rep cap, but if I did, would that be causing an incomplete reputation transfer?

You could go to and see whether you reached the daily rep.

(If reputation on this page does not reflect the reputation shown in your usual use of SO, questions have been deleted or moved. This page is accurate, while the normal reputation shown needs recalculation from time to time. You may request that from a moderator by flagging one of your questions for mod attention or emailing the team if needed and wanted. Recalculations are done automatically sporadically.)

Wow... is this a 'hidden' feature? I've never seen it before. – Delan Azabani Sep 16 '10 at 12:01

So... this can be proven by getting another upvote after this, and not getting any more rep? I'll observe and comment back here. – Delan Azabani Sep 16 '10 at 11:53
@Delan Azabani: Yes, exactly. You can still get rep today from accepts/bounties, but not from upvotes. – Piskvor Sep 16 '10 at 12:03
Hmm, exactly. I've gotten a couple more upvotes since then, and they've added no rep. – Delan Azabani Sep 16 '10 at 12:09
