What is "rep cap" in the Just Jesting hat in winter bash?

How to win it?

  • There is no rep cap. You just need to do the things that are pointed out underneath each item

  • @Pekka - in the descriptions, it mentions rep cap. I believe that this is what sfah was referring to :)

  • I think we need to earn just 200 reputation to earn this instead of rep cap. See this

    When in doubt about any term, refer to the glossary. Rep cap is mentioned there as well. Commented Dec 19, 2012 at 11:01

The rep cap, is the threshold for reputation. You can not get more that 200 reputation from votes in a single day.

  • I think we should get rid of this.

    Whitout the repcap some people wouldn't have a life outside of stackexchange. Commented Dec 19, 2012 at 11:26
  • That's not bad. Higher user activity means less time to get an answer.

    Great irony, this answer just pushed me onto the rep cap. Commented Dec 19, 2012 at 11:30
  • I hit the rep cap 2 days ago, before Winter Bash :(

Rep cap means you can only earn 200 rep/day from upvote .. note that accept and bounty isn't counted.

But I suspect you will get the rep cap hat on just reaching 200 rep/day check this question

Just Jesting! awarded before hitting rep cap
