Well, I have gone through the Tour and I'm aware of earning reputation. I have pretty much reputation in stack overflow so that I can comment and post answers and do other basic things.
But, I'm pretty new at Programmers, and I keep monitoring this site for architectural knowledge. Many times I come across some questions, where I really can't post an answer but can comment. But I lack the reputation to comment here.
Any help would be great. :)
