That’s a really helpful comment @domestictiger. If only others could comment as well as you do, this blockchain would be the new FB.

What? This isn't FB? Ah schucks... I thought the layout was weird... figured they must have just changed their algorithms again.

That’s right. We’re not FB here. The idea is to advance your reputation by writing well, and making intelligent and valuable comments that contribute to a discussion about the article in question.

The other trick is to avoid flags which can make your reputation go south. If you want to see what damage a flag can do, just try writing “Nice post bro” on half a dozen blogs, and you will surely get flagged.

Good luck in your future blogging!
