- How does “Reputation” work? 1 answer
I seem to be confused about how the reputation system on these sites works precisely. I'm trying to advance so that I can make better use of these sites and provide more useful and valuable responses, but I feel like I'm not receiving reputation for upvoted posts and questions.
Is there a cap as to how many upvotes I need to get to receive reputation? Do I receive reputation for each upvote? Do I receive reputation if I get the answer? Do I only receive reputation if I get the answer?
I can't properly follow what actions I've made that get reputation, and I feel stuck at my current level where I can't be sure I'm efficiently helping people on the site according to site etiquette.
