Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

I am a new to the Stack Exchange family and I got to see Area 51 - the staging area.

But, for any action I need to do (either ask a question, answering, proposing, etc.) in that except for the editing of tag wikis needs at least 5 reputation. What are options for me to gain that initial reputations in Area 51?

  • Can it be through some activities in Area 51 itself?
  • Do I need to wait for the association bonus of 100 reputations to be credited once I make a 200+ reputation in any of the Stack Exchange sites?
  • Is some other option existing, like reputation sharing with some other sites in this family?

  • Earn 200 reputation on any Q&A site in the Stack Exchange network to get an automatic one-time +100 "association bonus" on all your associated accounts.

  • On Area 51 specifically, you can verify your email address for an additional +50 reputation.

This will give you 151 reputation, with which you'll be able to perform most of the basic actions on Area 51.
