I just now looked at one of the questions posted on the site and the answer I have provided which peeked my curiousity:

Holidays in US for close relative's funeral in EU?

The answer has 3 upvotes and it hasn't been marked as Community Wiki but it appears that I don't receive any reputation for these votes.

Am I the only one that this has happened to or is there an issue that affects more than just me?

  • If you look closely, you've also received a badge called "Mortarboard" as the system congratulated you for reaching the daily reputation limit :)

  • Well. IMHO daily rep limit on a private beta site shouldn't exist
