This question already has an answer here:

I reached the reputation cap yesterday towards the end of the SO day. However, before the day lapsed, the answer (which caused the rep to cap, though I don't think that's relevant) was accepted, causing another 15 points to accumulate. By that time, I had hit the cap, but I still got those 15 points, making my total for that day 215.

You can see my profile here.

Is this intended, or a bug in the cap system?

Reputation cap rules:

  • Accepted answers are never susceptible to the reputation cap (no matter when in the day they are received).
  • Bounties may exceed the reputation cap since apparently they are also immune.
