I see some real good answers on this site but I can't vote and I can't comment. How do i get reputation points the quickest?

  • This question would fit better in the meta.bitcoin.stackexchange.com area.

  • Thank you for the notice! Actually, there is a flag for just this case: Below a post, you can click flag > Off-topic > "This belongs on a different site in the SE-network" > meta.bitcoin-se.com. You should already have enough reputation to use it, if I remember correctly. :)

Welcome to Bitcoin.SE.

Reputation is a measure of your contribution to the website, and thus a measure of the community's trust in you.

You can earn reputation by generating useful content, i.e. asking good questions or providing good answers. You can also gain smaller amounts of reputation by suggesting improvements on existing posts. If you haven't seen it yet, check out the about page for a short introduction to Stackexchange.

The help center has a section on Reputation & Moderation, which covers your question in greater detail, e.g. it provides an overview how much reputation you will gain for which actions.
