As you can see, I didn't receive any bounties but I still got more than 200 reputation! What does it mean?

It has also happened to me before but I thought that was because I edited a lot of posts, but as you can clearly see, I didn't do any of that today.

The +15 for an accepted answer doesn't count towards the rep cap. Neither does the +2 for accepting an answer.

What is the reputation cap and how can I hit it?

    Bounties are also exempt.
