My reputation on Meta StackOverflow, as of April 2010, is still a meagre 1 in spite of my only 2 contributions to MetaSO having 17 and 18 upvotes respectively. I did not realise the system was weighted to reward self aggrandizement over community service and have been systematically making all contributions community wiki. This is broken, but I'm happy to finally understand why there's been so little movement in my score. It's not even like I care that much about my reputation, I only want enough to be able to participate in the community: up and down vote content, edit so-called community wiki posts, and perhaps close or re-open my questions. After that it's all gravy.
