Since November 13th, upvotes to questions are now worth 10 reputation instead of 5 reputation. This has led to some sites in the network getting a new top user. It's possible to see (approximately) how much reputation you gained because of the change; which users gained the most reputation because of it?

    It's quite hard to grasp, why someone downvoted this useful, on-topic, well researched and self answered question. Commented Nov 30, 2019 at 10:05

    @πάνταῥεῖ Agreed. Why is everybody so picky these days? I swear anything I post gets immediately downvoted, no matter how quality it is.

    @connectyourcharger: Meta has always been like that, though. It is sad. But it will soon come to an end. Which is sad too. Commented Dec 1, 2019 at 3:55

Here is a SEDE query to find this out. On Stack Overflow, some users managed to gain more than 100,000 reputation (left). On other sites, the numbers are lower: here on Meta the record is 33k (middle), and the highest non-Stack Overflow example I could find was 41k on Science Fiction & Fantasy (right).
