Earlier today I was at 168 reputation for the day, when I received an upvote on an answer of mine. Instead of receiving 10 reputation like I would have expected I only gained 2. I don't mind much having 7 rep less, I would have liked to get a point towards epic, but I have plenty of time left to hit the cap. However I couldn't find an explanation as to why this happened, so I thought I would bring it here in case anyone has experienced this before.
Why might I only receive 2 rep when I'm not at the rep cap?
