Here is what I have in the end of https://stackoverflow.com/reputation:

rep cap was reached via rep from upvotes *only* on 11 days
earned at least 200 reputation on 11 days

Checking my reputation tab I only see 19 upvotes for today:

enter image description here

Since both rep cap via upvotes and at least 200 rep messages are 11 days, it means that both of them are for the same set of days. Otherwise at least 200 rep would be higher:

"earned at least 200 rep" days == "rep cap via upvotes only" days + other days I've reached 200 cap, but not via upvotes

Is this a bug or am I misunderstanding the meaning of those messages in https://stackoverflow.com/reputation?

Update: I just received my 20th upvote and the both counts on https://stackoverflow.com/reputation remain 11.

  • I'm confused, are you suggesting that the screen shoted day; hit the rep cap but shouldn't have? Jul 10, 2013 at 8:43
  • The screenshot say I have 19 upvotes today, but the reputation link says that I have reached the cap.

    How can you be certain today is one of the 11 days? Jul 10, 2013 at 8:46
  • earned at least 200 - 11 days rep cap via upvotes - also 11 days -> therefore, on all the days I earned 200 rep, I also reached rep cap via upvotes, otherwise by earned at least 200 would be higher than rep cap via upvotes. Plus, just a few minutes ago the rep cap via upvotes was 10

    Actually this is interesting, you have in your profile exactly 11 days when you have more than 200 points and in most of those you didn't actually hit the rep cap stackoverflow.com/users/2454376/… Jul 10, 2013 at 9:03
  • For example july the 4th where you recieved 217 but also had 3 (net) accepts Jul 10, 2013 at 9:04

    @RichardTingle Yes, I've noticed this few days ago, but wanted to prepare some proof before asking the question :)

  • Don't forget that if a post is deleted over 60 days after you gained reputation for it, that reputation will not be removed, though the post will no longer appear in your reputation audit page.

  • A potentially related observation: I received my Epic and Legendary badges on SO several days before I should have (at least according to that "n days" message on the /reputation page), and the same thing happened on dba.SE. I complained about the Legendary badge here and then found that there are some discrepancy explanations in the answers here.

We suck at counting, what can I say?

The next build will properly filter down to just upvotes on this tally.
