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

I'm trying to increase my reputation score, but I only encounter questions that others ask when I'm searching for similar subjects. Obviously, if I knew the answer I wouldn't be searching for one. So, if I want to increase my reputation I need to get notified of questions asked in the subjects I know about. Is there any way to do this?

I've probably posted this question in the wrong forum or section, so feel free to scold me if I am stupid (more like lazy).

Thanks for your help. BTW...How did you come across this question?

You can subscribe to different tags (look up in the page). That's a good start.

BTW, I saw it as one of the "recent questions"

Update: do you see the number next to your question? Those are upvotes also. Asking good questions is another way to increase the rep :) – Aleadam Apr 1 '11 at 15:34

If you use Chrome (and there's no doubt similar options for other browser), then New Q! is a great extension which notifies you of new questions based on tags...
