I understand that bounties received do not contribute at all to the rep cap. Are bounty awards immune to rep caps as well?
- [+204] gained 300 rep from votes (capped at 200) - [+ 50] received a +50 bounty - [+ 60] answered 4 questions - [- 4] downvoted 4 answers (note: this can be recovered)
One would sit at +310 rep for the day.
If you then awarded a bounty
- awarded a +500 bounty
Are you at -190 effectively for the day, or can this be "recovered" from upvote reps, like the downvotes? So is the outcome
- -190; or
- -94 (96 recovered from upvotes)
Proposal: If it isn't the latter, can we make it so?
EDIT: It seems Grace has asked this before but that was a long time ago. You know how things age here on SE... I'm making a
proposal here as well.
