How did I manage to get 201 points for the day just ended? The Rep panel just shows the last upvote with +1 after a long string of blanks since I had already reached the limit of 200.
I have noticed that the capping system is annoyingly dumb: after truncating incoming upvotes, if I “spend” points like with a downvote it really does take it off leaving 199 rather tha re-evaluating the truncation of incoming votes.
Now I recall accidently touching a downvote and immediatly reversing that (when trying to scroll on the tablet), so maybe it’s an outright bug in capping with downvote/undownvote, or maybe someone upvoted me at the same moment so it awarded the 1 point (instead of 10) to bring it back to 200, but then the undownvote returned the point. If that’s true, although lesser of an actual bug, it would allow funny ways to bypass the cap.
