Can someone please explain to me how the point system works?

For many upvotes I get nothing, for some I get +2, for some comment upvotes I get nothing.... for other upvotes I get +10.

What is the method behind this madness? I seem to have been stuck around 1960 for a while now...

    $\begingroup$ Comment upvotes never give reputation. Answer upvoted give $+10$, with a cap of $+200$ per day; once you reach this cap, you won't receive more reputation from upvotes. Answer accepts give $+15$, independent of the cap. Looking at your reputation tab, this seems to account for everything; there are a few downvotes (giving $-2$) and unaccepts (removing the $+15$), as well as $-350$ from some bounties. $\endgroup$ – user61527 Apr 23 '14 at 3:45

  • $\begingroup$ I see, thank you. BTW, what's up with the unaccepts? I got a few "accepts then unaccepts", and I also got an "upvote then unupvote". ????? Tell people to make their mind up. $\endgroup$ – user142299 Apr 23 '14 at 3:47

    $\begingroup$ Voting on SE is weird sometimes. I wouldn't worry about it. $\endgroup$ – user61527 Apr 23 '14 at 3:48
