What are reputation points and how to gain them?

Help Center · What are reputation points and how to gain them?
Reputation points are a measure of "trust" of the community to a particular user. The more reputation points, the more useful content the user has provided. Reputation points are awarded by the community. Good answers and interesting questions are voted up, what adds up to the reputation of the post owner. Incorrect answers or badly constructed questions are voted down, which reduces the reputation of the user.

Gaining reputation points unlocks new moderation privileges. The more the community trusts the given user, the more moderation tools become available to that user.

The table below presents how the reputation points are awarded.
