How does “Reputation” work?

After answering a question earlier on SO, I realized that the upvotes to my answer do not increase my reputation. I've checked and I am sure that neither the question nor my answer are set as community wiki.

Checking my latest activities, it shows 2 in the top half of the green box, but nothing in the lower half, where reputation would be.

Here's a screenshot of my rep activity:

Any idea what happened?

    It's times like this that I wish I took my tablet PC into work today so that I could draw even more silly things.

    Who needs a tablet when the jitteriness of the mouse does just fine?

  • Well, what I would end up drawing will look exactly the same, but I'd have drawn it faster with a tablet.

    I use my mouse in my right hand, and my tablet's pen in my left hand, so things would look a little bit different. I can draw letters better with my left hand than my right hand. "Drawing letters", otherwise known as "writing".

  • Can't you just hold the pen in your nostril?

  • I don't have a neck, and I can't wiggle my nose, so I don't see how that would help.

    Why to limit the reputation score? what is wrong in gaining points :-( Commented Dec 22, 2010 at 22:44

Are you sure you were not over your reputation limit for the day?

Looking at your reputation graph, it looks like this is a strong possibility.

  • I hardly reached 60 today. It seems that my reputation is also dropping 2 by 2 - and the changes does not reflect on my recent page.

    It seems you are wrong. You should have looked at the graph as I suggested.
