# Capped reputation

I just read about the reputation cap of 200, and I have two questions.

1. Say that it happens I get more than twenty upvotes for my answers in one day. Will the reputation beyond capped be permanently lost, or will it be added back later?

2. Is there anyplace where I can check how much below the cap I am today?

• In addition, suppose you hit the 200 cap, and then do something to lose reputation. Will it go down to 198, or will the runoff cover for it? – Joe Z. Dec 30 '12 at 0:39
• @JoeZ. It will go down to $198$, but the cap is lifted as well (that is, you can earn $2$ more reputation). – A.S May 13 '13 at 6:37
