# Editing answers does not give reputation anymore

I noticed that when you have below $2000$ points you get $2$ reputation for editing a question, but once you reach $2000$ points where your edits don't have to revieved anymore you stop to get those $2$ points. I asked myself if there was any reason for this, why would you punish people with many points?

• With enough negative votes, you will get below 2000 and then you can enjoy the extra reputation points again ;-) May 22 '11 at 17:03
• @Fabian: the posts on meta don't generate reputation... :-)
