If I get 30 upvote in answers with a particular tag, does it calculate 30 score for me in top users section or just 20 score ? ( considering maximum daily reputation of 200 for upvotes )

    Tag scores aren't capped.

  • I didn't understood what you meant,sorry, can you explain a little bit more? Jan 30 '14 at 23:43
  • Looks like a diamond moderator specifically notes here in the comments that all votes are taken into account, regardless of whether you've hit the cap. Jan 30 '14 at 23:43
  • Im really sorry, but what does cap means ? Jan 30 '14 at 23:46
  • Ah sorry. By "cap" I mean the daily reputation limit. Do you want me to pull out the relevant comments into an answer here? Jan 30 '14 at 23:49
  • Well, this kind of proves what @Dennis said - 117 score for answer posted two days ago. :) Jan 30 '14 at 23:54
  • another question, when exactly in day will top users list update? Jan 31 '14 at 0:12

Alright, I'll go ahead and pull out my comment into an answer.

As noted in the comments here:

@yes Only upvotes and downvotes, and only the corresponding score. It has no effect to or from reputation, so things such as votes that give no reputation due to the reputation cap, they still count. – Grace Note ♦ Jun 1 '11 at 18:19

and a little further down

@yes123 Score is not derived from reputation, as mentioned in my previous comment, so it is not affected by the reputation cap. – Grace Note♦ Jun 2 '11 at 15:07

Plus, as @ShadowWizard notes, @Gamemorize's score on English Language & Usage in the "phrase-requests" tag, as shown here, is currently 117 (and will be 150+ once it updates again), but the only post with a nonzero score was made just two days ago.

This pretty much definitively shows that the Top Users score is not affected by the daily reputation limit.

  • so, I got my answer earlier in comments, but as you are the only answerer here, I gonna accept yours ;), thank you Jan 31 '14 at 0:07
