2 days ago (10/1/2014)(9/1/2014) I answered assorted questions and went over the repcap(+215). After that a question I answered was deleted by Community♦ when the user was deleted (no huge objection there, the question was based on a bizarre misconception1).

Specific problem

However, even after the question was deleted I appear to still be repcapped at 165, is that the way the system is supposed to behave?

My understanding is that rep is not supposed to require recalcs these days; regardless I have waited 2 days to see if the problem resolves itself. I cannot currently do a manual recalc as that option has been removed as part of an unrelated bug.

You were rep capped.

Since other users can't see your deleted post records, it makes it more obvious when we look at it:

enter image description here

You had 1 accepted answer, 120 rep from 12+ upvotes on your answers, and 81 rep from your 18+ upvotes and 1 downvote on your question, that comes to 216, which is consistent with the rep cap. And the extra "1" came from that downvote you made on a specific answer.

The removed post is shown in your reputation feed on the day it was deleted (which was on 1/10/2014, but technically the rep was lost on the day it was earned originally (which was on the day the answer was posted, 1/9/2014). If you were rep capped on 1/9, you would eventually get credit for the other upvotes.
