I was just upvoted for a question on Meta, but there was no rep increase.

Indeed, doesn't work! – Ivo Flipse Jun 30 '10 at 21:09
@Ivo, actually, if you click on recent activity it shows the rep, just isn't in the total. – Lance Roberts Jun 30 '10 at 21:14

There is no reputation awarded for posts in the "child" meta sites (i.e. meta.webapps.stackexchange.com). The "reputation" is inherited from the parent site. But you will get meta-specific badges, though.

It appears to be inherited from when you opened the meta account. Will it update periodically? – ChrisF Jun 30 '10 at 21:53
Though the badges aren't being awarded here either - meta.webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/26/… – ChrisF Jun 30 '10 at 21:54
@ChrisF: Reputation from the parent site is transferred to meta hourly. – Robert Cartaino Jun 30 '10 at 21:56
I'm very glad to hear that we won't have to put up with reputation hunters like the ones on meta.stackoverflow.com. – Kinopiko Jul 1 '10 at 0:57
@kino meta has reputation hunters? news to me... – Jeff Atwood Jul 1 '10 at 8:08
Um, OK then. It's often difficult to get a sensible response on meta.stackoverflow.com because of all the noise from people I had wildly assumed were reputation hunters. I thought that must be why there wasn't a separate reputation counter here, but maybe not. – Kinopiko Jul 1 '10 at 9:18
Sarcasm is such a low form of wit that I fear it slips under the radar – Jeff Yates Jul 1 '10 at 14:48
