Test case:

  1. Hit daily cap
  2. Ask question and accept correct answer (+2 reputation as it should be)
  3. Get a downvote (-2 reputation)
  4. Get an upvote (+2 reputation, imho it's a bug, because I've got 202 points with upvotes).

  • Hit the accounts tab. Mar 9, 2010 at 23:17
  • Ah, you got it. Mar 9, 2010 at 23:19
  • I think that rep from accepting an answer doesn't count towards the cap, whether it's the 15 point you get from having an answer accepted or the 2 points you get from accepting an answer.

  • @ChrisF, I don't think it counts either, but usually an upvote after the downvote, won't do anything (I thought). Mar 9, 2010 at 23:23
  • @Lance - I think there's been a change recently that corrected that particular "bug" (though don't quote me on that!)

At least it's a good bug, instead of penalizing you, you get rewarded.

I think we could eliminate half the questions on meta if we could make the rep cap simple and streamlined.

  • Indeed, maybe it's not a bug. But at least, at first glance it looks strange.

    ...and eliminate most of the other half if we made reputation recalcs regular and obvious!

These downvote reversals will now give back the proper amount of reputation (including respecting the reputation cap).
