- How does “Reputation” work? 1 answer
I reached the reputation cap yesterday towards the end of the SO day. However, before the day lapsed, the answer (which caused the rep to cap, though I don't think that's relevant) was accepted, causing another 15 points to accumulate. By that time, I had hit the cap, but I still got those 15 points, making my total for that day 215.
You can see my profile here.
Is this intended, or a bug in the cap system?
