How does “Reputation” work?

I've just noticed that my reputation is at 360 in SO and nothing I do (getting upvoted, upvoting, commenting, etc...) changes my reputation at all. It's not even showing in the reputation logger.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I noticed the same thing on Programmers, but mine stopped at 200. Is this a thing? – aceinthehole May 11 '11 at 21:52
That's very impressive to hit the cap on your first day. You're both off to great starts. – mmyers May 11 '11 at 21:53

Registered user, completely filled-out profile, member for 2 days, rep capped on 1st day...I'm aghast! We can't have this! – Robert Harvey May 11 '11 at 21:57
@mmyers I'm glad you think it's impressive. I've long since hit that limit, and I has a six hour nap inbetween registering and starting posting again :/. I could have had 1K rep today if I were all at it. – cbroughton May 11 '11 at 21:57're making the rest of us look bad. :) – Justin Morgan May 11 '11 at 22:04

@Rick, I was just curious as to why it wasn't moving is all :). I posted another question, to continue on this thought. – cbroughton May 11 '11 at 22:06

I know this is a dupe, however:

Quoting the FAQ found in the top right corner of each page:

A maximum of 30 votes can be cast per user per day, and you can earn a maximum of 200 reputation per day (although accepted answers and bounty awards are immune to this limit). Please note that votes for posts marked “community wiki” do not generate reputation.

I was going to say, I'm well past that. – cbroughton May 11 '11 at 21:55

It looks like you've hit the 200 rep/day from upvotes rep cap. You still get rep from getting your answers accepted, but you won't get any more from votes until tomorrow (00:00Z).

which happens in a couple hours, yes? – jcolebrand May 11 '11 at 21:55
In one hour, approx. I run on UTC :D – cbroughton May 11 '11 at 21:56
Two hours, actually. The timestamp on this answer shows 21:53Z – mmyers May 11 '11 at 21:57
