How does “Reputation” work?

I've just noticed that my reputation is at 360 in SO and nothing I do (getting upvoted, upvoting, commenting, etc...) changes my reputation at all. It's not even showing in the reputation logger.

    I noticed the same thing on Programmers, but mine stopped at 200. Is this a thing? Commented May 11, 2011 at 21:52

    That's very impressive to hit the cap on your first day. You're both off to great starts.

    Registered user, completely filled-out profile, member for 2 days, rep capped on 1st day...I'm aghast! We can't have this!

  • @mmyers I'm glad you think it's impressive. I've long since hit that limit, and I has a six hour nap inbetween registering and starting posting again :/. I could have had 1K rep today if I were all at it.

  • @Rick, I was just curious as to why it wasn't moving is all :). I posted another question, to continue on this thought.

I know this is a dupe, however:

Quoting the FAQ found in the top right corner of each page:

A maximum of 30 votes can be cast per user per day, and you can earn a maximum of 200 reputation per day (although accepted answers and bounty awards are immune to this limit). Please note that votes for posts marked “community wiki” do not generate reputation.

  • I was going to say, I'm well past that.

It looks like you've hit the 200 rep/day from upvotes rep cap. You still get rep from getting your answers accepted, but you won't get any more from votes until tomorrow (00:00Z).
