I have answered a couple of questions today and received upvotes. However, these upvotes aren't getting added to my grand total as if there is some kind of a cap. This started happening after I've acquired the mortarboard badge.
I'm also seeing this on my Rep screen:
I've always seen the upvotes get added to the total realtime, so I'm curious why I'm not getting the points all of a sudden.
I've scoured the Help pages, but haven't been able to find anything in the official SE rules on such caps.
Why is this happening?
