This question already has an answer here:
I have been on Stack Overflow for some time. It is an AMAZING resource and don't know if I would've got through the past 18 months without it. I love it! Problem is that I have "1" reputation.
All of my questions have already been asked and answered.
My "new user restrictions" mean: - I can't vote up answers that were helpful. - I can't comment on answers.
I sometimes have a question to ask one of the users that answered someone else's question but I can't.
This is hard! How do I get a break? Do I have to troll for a couple of days/weeks/months to answer enough questions in the hope someone votes some of them up just so I can do some basic functions?
Perhaps the number of site visits and length of membership could count for something?
