Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Do you get points/reputation for upvoted comments?

I know this is a question I should be able to find easily, but I can't seem to find it by searching here or skimming the faq. Thanks

No reputation of any kind is earned or lost from comment votes.

There is, however, a badge.

Is that written somewhere? If so can you provide a link? Thanks – Dusty Jul 31 '09 at 21:57
Sure - updated. – Shog9 Jul 31 '09 at 21:59
I've always sort of hated pundits, really... – mmyers Jul 31 '09 at 21:59
Thanks. Not only did I upvote your answer, but I upvoted your comment. haha – Dusty Jul 31 '09 at 22:01
I'm on a personal mission to try and make you a pundit at every opportunity – Ian Elliott Jul 31 '09 at 22:01
Everybody upvote mmyers' comments - let's make him a pundit here on MSO as well... – Shog9 Jul 31 '09 at 22:03
Don't forget about me Shog9. I don't mind having the pundit badge. :) – Dusty Jul 31 '09 at 22:04

4 easy steps to become a pundit:

  1. Camp out on “fun” questions (but only comment on them).
  2. Be mildly amusing.
  3. ???
  4. Pundit!

Uh, wait. A pundit is someone who makes bad puns, right?

Wikied because a) it doesn't answer the question, b) I already posted it as a comment to the blog, and c) it was so bad then that I had to slap myself after I posted it. – mmyers Jul 31 '09 at 22:20
I completely agree with your comment! keep up the good work – Ian Elliott Jul 31 '09 at 22:48
You mean I should keep slapping myself? (Ow!) – mmyers Aug 1 '09 at 5:01
>Uh, wait. A pundit is someone who makes bad puns, right? - No, that’s a pun twit. – Synetech Feb 21 '11 at 18:03
This is a fine meta-answer-comment-combo by mmyers: Stating a hypothesis in the answer and proving it right with the comment ;) – das_weezul Apr 12 '11 at 13:35
