This question already has an answer here:

I would like to see a table in the FAQ section of SO detailing the points awarded for each action. Is this possible? Is it available somewhere or this is hidden for a purpose?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

See How does "Reputation" work?

Which is now updated to reflect the recent question upvote rep. change :) – Jørn Schou-Rode Mar 24 '10 at 9:22

Reopening, because I think the OP's point was valid -- the official /faq should have been improved in this area.

I changed it to be more accurate and up to date, and included a table of ways you can gain and lose rep.

The unofficial faq will always be more detailed, of course, but the /faq should have the essentials and it really didn't.

Not relevant anymore, no more /faq and help center is up to date these days. – Shadow Wizard Oct 12 '14 at 11:15
