I'm a brand new user and a first timer to this type of site - I like to use all the resources available when I have a question or a problem (research, google, bing, etc.) so I came here when I got my first real road block in my script where I couldn't find the answer anywhere, but I can't use many of the features (ex: chat) on this site until someone, somehow finds my question in the mist of many, answers it, or gives enough 1 ups... Why is that? How are we supposed to build Reputation when it seems questions by new users are a needle in a haystack to find because they have little or no Reputation? Just curious...
P.S. I saw "How does “Reputation” work?" and "How to gain rep (new users)?" before posting my question and I didn't mean for it to appear that I was asking a duplicate question, sorry)
By the way great site before becoming a member the search engine I used always put this site at the top of their list and I was able to find many useful answers to solve my code issues. Thank-you.
