If reputation points are capped at 200 per day, why I gained 245 today?


1 Answer 1


Accepts (the green check marks worth 15 reputation) and bounties are exempt from the reputation limit. You got three of those today, worth 45 reputation.

Note that they do count towards the limit, i.e. if you get them early, they'll cause regular votes to not increase your reputation.

  • Wait I'm a little confused... if I've hit my limit and accept an answer does the rep from that not apply? May 2, 2013 at 21:23
  • @KronoS I guess it's also considered an 'accept' for the purposes of limiting rep, and not counting it would just lead to strategic accepting scheduling, but I'm not sure.

  • That's what I thought, but was a little confused by your "if you get them eartly" statement. I thought the only thing that didn't count towards daily rep was bounties. May 2, 2013 at 22:46
