I notice that Server Fault awards users two rep points for upvoted comments. Should we implement the same feature? I don't know how many other sites have the same feature, so I don't know if SF is the norm or we are.


Encouraging useful comments seems like a good idea. Often useful information is contained in them.

  • You should accept the answer, so that it doesn't keep popping up. :D

Upvotes on comments do not add reputation anywhere on Stack Exchange network. The proposal to do so was poorly received and officially declined: Reputation for comment votes

You got 2 points here because your suggested edit was approved, not because your comment was upvoted.

  • Oh. Well then. I withdraw the request.
