    Everything you want to know about rep can be found here. Except for the part about asking how to get more rep will most likely result in losing a lot.

    You've been here less than 3 years. You need to brush up on your mental arithmetic.

    You can gain reputation through either somebody going directly to your profile and directly adding to your reputation, or through people giving your posts positive ratings.

    Most reputation is probably gained through the post rating system. To get a healthy number of thumbs ups, make funny, eloquent, dry or helpful posts.

    Conversely, to become more "infamous", make posts which inadvertently cause users to transfer their face into the palm of the their hands. That, or say something that the majority of TSrians don't agree with.

    Consider your post as an example. Why has it been given a negative rating?

    1) You gave an inaccurate length of time for which you've been registered.
    2) You used "them" in the wrong context. You should've used "those".
    3) There's a perfectly reasonable help guide in some forum on TSR which will educate you on matters such as this.
    4) If you couldn't find this page, you could probably work it out for yourself, or at least use Google.
    5) You have 900+ posts and some warning points and still haven't grasped the concept of reputation. Allegedly. Methinks you're fishing for pity rep.

    You say you have been here almost four years but it says you joined in Mar 2008 so I assume you have another account.

    Anyway just try and get involved as possible with conversations, people will rep you for agreeing with you, for makining them laugh, or for having a cool signature.

    Just make yourself stand out as much as possible I guess.

    Next time you want good rep, don't make a thread asking how to ge it.
