Last week I gained 5 rep per upvote. Today I gained 10 per upvote. Is this an SE-wide change or is there some sort of rep bonus on certain days?
The primary way to gain reputation is by posting good questions and useful answers. Your peers will vote on your posts, and those votes will cause you to gain (or, in rare cases, lose) reputation:
- answer is voted up +10
- question is voted up +5
