I've read a comment from a user who's familiar with how reputation cap works on SE to an answer that received a lot of upvotes in a day saying they'll upvote it later so that it counts towards their rep.
So I thought: what would happen if a user posts a great answer, gets enough upvotes to reach daily rep cap and after that…
- Someone downvotes
- Someone un-upvotes
…reducing the answer poster's rep?
Will both of these cases lower daily rep gained and allow for more upvotes to count toward rep cap? Is it possible to get a ton of upvotes, reach daily rep cap and then lose more rep than gained due to un-upvotes? (also, can un-upvotes drain more rep than daily rep cap allows to gain?)
