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: enter image description here

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?

You can earn a maximum of 200 reputation per day from any combination of the activities below. Only bounty awards and accepted answers are not subject to the daily reputation limit.

You are at the limit already for the day. Actually you are over it due to two accepted answers:
