I'm trying to gain rep by adding to questions. Most of the questions I see have already been answered but adding to them as a comment would make the most sense as it's another added help.
Also, marking an answer as correct for me is annoying that I can't even do that and having a list of questions that I've searched for and found and answer would be helpful (this may already exist but I wouldn't know as I can't up-mark any correct/helpful answers).
I've asked questions on the forums but nobody can help with the ones I ask so again I'm stuck for gaining rep and getting answers. Whether I'm lower in the stack of viewable answers due to my rep I don't know?
Is there a simple way of gaining reps so I can fully contribute to Stack Overflow that I'm missing as a newbie?
