I not able to post an answer to Create a Bootable Windows USB from a OS X to work on a PC? It states "posting an answer now requires 10 reputation," but I have a reputation of 101.

The rep you earned linking your SE account doesn't count, unfortunately. You need to earn 10 rep points on Ask Different organically to be able to answer that question. You can get those points through voting, answering non-protected questions, asking questions, editing posts, etc.

  • Thanks Ian. I didn't realize (or remember) that those points were from linking accounts. I also don't think the difference was made clear in the notice or the "reputation" link. Might be an opportunity to improve the site. May 22, 2016 at 2:33
  • I agree. We'll look into editing the site text to make it clearer.
