    No, reputation is capped at 1 for the lower bound. – Magisch Apr 17 at 6:22
  • @Glorfindel there was additional question here, I edited to focus on it so it's not a dupe. – ShaWiz Apr 17 at 6:25
  • I bet that question has been asked before as well... – Glorfindel Apr 17 at 6:26
  • @Glorfindel not in such a way, pretty sure of that. If you find something let me know though. :) – ShaWiz Apr 17 at 6:31

    See the privileges page for what rep gives you. – Robert Longson Apr 17 at 6:42
  • @gnat This was closed as a dupe of that, but later reopened. – Sonic the Anonymous WizHog Apr 17 at 7:26

  • @ShadowWizard the prior close was right, the later reopening was wrong (you should have simply edited two posts listed in your comment into dupe list instead) – gnat Apr 17 at 7:33
  • @gnat no, the faq doesn't say anything about restrictions. – ShaWiz Apr 17 at 7:34
  • this is a problem of the faq @ShadowWizard - references to canonicals about restrictions should be edited in it somehow – gnat Apr 17 at 7:36

What are the restriction given by a low reputation?

No direct restrictions are placed due to the low reputation, but it goes the other way around: you start with minimal set of things you can do (e.g. Ask, Answer, etc) and you gain privileges as you get reputation points.

This is explained in detail in the faqs here on Meta: How does "Reputation" work?, Reputation requirements compared and more.
