(Preface: I'm not on a badge witch hunt or anything, just saw something peculiar and potentially buggy)
This user recently got
Mortarboard but the only day he's gone over the rep cap is because of a bounty, and that was 3 months ago. The
Mortarboard FAQ description states that Mortarboard is earned by
- Exceed the rep cap
- Exceeding the cap is defined as earning ≥200 reputation in one day from a combination of upvotes and accepts, but not bounties
But there's been no days like that as far as I can tell. Is this a bug?
edit: and also the answer that got upvotes on the day of that bounty was to a CW question that's always been CW (plus, he would have gotten 250 + the upvote rep since the bounty is immune to the rep cap)
