  • @angussidney ok, let's break the layout. – hellyale Dec 17 '15 at 2:25
  • You're not just trying to get a hat here are you? – apaul Dec 17 '15 at 2:27
  • @apaul34208 I want to break the meta layout. Also, rep can't go negative right? I only lose 125 rep. Worth it to be able to say my question broke the layout of SE meta =) – hellyale Dec 17 '15 at 2:29
  • @apaul34208 of course, if I got a hat along the way, I wouldn't complain haha – hellyale Dec 17 '15 at 2:29
  • ok, I'll help you along then. – apaul Dec 17 '15 at 2:30
  • @apaul34208 get 8999 of your friends ^_^ – hellyale Dec 17 '15 at 2:31
  • That's only 4 digits... Actually Meta.SE doesn't have enough users to break the layout. At the moment it looks like there's only 154,878 – apaul Dec 17 '15 at 2:34
  • long term goals then... @apaul34208 I'm talking about a different hat =P – hellyale Dec 17 '15 at 2:40
  • I'm surprised my rep is still above 1.... – hellyale Dec 17 '15 at 20:28

As big as the data type can take (look at the second point for the meme) :)

i.e. This is basically infinity. There's no limit to how many up or down votes a question can take.

  • I thought so, but wanted to be sure, thanks! – hellyale Dec 17 '15 at 1:43

As stated there isn't a bottom limit, but the layout breaks at 10 digits:
