When you cap, you don't see any upvotes you get on your profile, therefore, you don't have any update on how your questions / answers are doing unless you look at them manually.

Capping the 200 daily rep is not a reason to stop posting here so could I get notified somehow that my posts are being voted on ? Maybe put a little +X in a different color letting me know that I got these votes but I won't get the reputation for it.

I can go and see in my reputation feed inside my profile and see it :

So I don't see why it wouldn't show up in the feed above.
Maybe putting the feed button green without any +X just like when you aquire a badge.

    Agreed. If we really need that silly green rep notification (which we don't, but that's a different discussion), at least make it show all relevant events.

    In case of upvote when already capped, I would highlight the achievements in green (no number) and when opened, the upvoted post will be highlighted as "unread". :) Dec 10, 2013 at 15:02
  • @ShaWizDowArd But that only tells me that my amazing answer was upvoted, it doesn't feed my ego by telling me how many upvotes I got.

  • @Adnan right, but starting to add votes count will clutter the currently clean design, not sure it's a good idea. Dec 10, 2013 at 21:06

I'm with you on that one. I've already suggested this to be done with something along the lines of
