How does “Reputation” work?

I got two upvote on an answer for following question but the reputation got only 3.

INSERT statement that checks if an equivalent row already exists

For one upvote, I got +3 and none for another vote.

  • I'm a bit curious why you even got the 3, as that would put you at 203 for the day.

  • @waiwai933: Those aren't supposed to be counted towards the daily limit. See this question.

  • @yannis, it means if I got more than 200 reputation from upvotes then what will happen for the reputation of further upvotes. May 18, 2012 at 5:42
  • @Romil It's a daily limit, you can only earn 200 reputation per UTC day. Every upvote after that doesn't earn you reputation, you can still earn badges though.
