I recently answered this question (Simple quadratic function, but can't understand the question).I got 24 upvotes as well as my answer(edited by @Dan) was accepted; but my reputation change due for this question shows +235 instead of +255. Is that a bug or any rule I am not aware of?

    $\begingroup$ There is a daily rep cap of 200. This excludes any rep earned via Bounty or acceptance. Thus on first day you get 200+15 and later 20 more. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @ParamanandSingh Does that mean I will get +20 tommorow or it can be anytime later? $\endgroup$ Mar 24 at 16:58

    $\begingroup$ No, you don't get it later. You are not allowed to earn more than 200 in a single day via voting. Any extra voting on same day will not lead to any rep. Vote count will increase however. $\endgroup$
