The reputation system on ShareYourself is based on accruing points by utilizing the site. For instance, asking a question, responding to questions, and marking a question answered, all add reputation points. Reputation extends beyond Ask; having a completed profile adds points to your reputation as well as using the Task Management system. For certain actions, we want to reward the user with a badge. Everyone receives the Welcome Aboard badge when they join the site.
The more you use the site, the more you'll gain reputation.
