How do people get reputation on this site? I'd really like to know.

  • I know this has nothing to do with anime or manga at all, but I have to know. Commented Feb 1, 2018 at 23:59
  • i have flagged this to be migrated to our Meta site where it should be. that said have you bothered to check the Help Center like the pinned "What is reputation? How do I earn (and lose) it?"

  • Since this was migrated to meta, I upv-oted to give poster enough rep to be able to respond there. Otherwise, he would be in a "chicken & egg" situation. // Well hell, that didn't work. Since this question is actually in anime-meta, an upvote does not gain him any rep. Hello, Chicken! Hello, Egg!

  • @RichF actually if what I have seen on SO if you don't have the rep to participate in Meta but you get your question migrated here then you can participate on the migrated question alone (including answers)
