I have just seen the profile of https://meta.stackoverflow.com/users/220428/qantas-94-heavy.

This person has not asked any question and not given any answer but he has 101 rep. How's that?

In this case - association bonus.

If you have an account on any Stack Exchange site with over 200 reputation, you will get a +100 association bonus on other, linked sites.

Another way to get reputation without asking or answering is to suggest edits. Every approved suggested edit gives +2 reputation to a maximum total of +1000.

  • Maximum is 1000 from suggested edits, unless it was changed? Jun 13, 2013 at 10:59
  • @ShaWizDowArd - wasn't changed. Working from (corrupt?) memory.
