This question already has an answer here:
So I've been a longtime lurker of various StackExchanges (specifically Overflow) and the value it has given me cannot be described in words, however, I find myself wanting to upvote solutions or questions that I think are really good. Problem is, I have zero (ok well 1) reputation.
I've looked at the ways to gain reputation and it's really limited to users who may not want to ask questions or answer but still want to contribute to the community by placing a vote to signify they believe that this comment or answer has validity.
Rather than try to pollute Stack with questions that may already been answered or similar questions exist just to get to 15 reputation, what is the alternative for users like me? How can I still contribute to Stack without posting or answering questions?
