I am receiving upvotes, but my reputation is not increasing. Why does that happen?

Take a look at this answer and this question for example.

Congratulations! You have hit the rep limit!

You have earned over 200 rep today. Only accepted answers and bounties will give you rep for today at this point.

Because you've reached the reputation cap. You can only gain 200 points from upvotes in a single day.

What is reputation?

You can earn a maximum of 200 reputation per day from any combination of the activities below. Only bounty awards and accepted answers are not subject to the daily reputation limit.

  • Once the clock turns over (Stack Exchange uses UTC) and you get more upvotes then, yes, you will earn more reputation points from upvotes. – ale Jul 17 '13 at 14:00
  • The UTC day rolls over in 10 hours time. – tombull89 Jul 17 '13 at 14:06

    @AtishDipongkor See What is the reasoning behind the reputation cap? And please note that multiple question marks don't make your question more important. One will suffice. – Bart Jul 17 '13 at 14:20
