# Upvotes without getting the points (with 115 daily rep). Bounty related?

Sorry for a technical question (I've already seen the answers to this and this). Though I have earned 200 daily rep already, I have also set a 100 points bounty, so that somehow the counter stopped at 115. Is that normal? If yes, how does it count wrt certain badges like Mortarboard? (I already have this one).

One more question: it happened to me several times to get >200 points daily - how was that possible with the upper bound?

Mortarboard is awarded only once, but you still have the Epic and Legendary badges to work toward. These badges work differently from the reputation cap. In order for a day to count toward the badge, you should have a net profit of 200 points or more in that day (excluding association bonuses). That is, if your net profit today is 140, this day will not move you toward the Epic and Legendary badges, even though you capped.
