I used to be a little active here over 10 years ago. I regularly posted game scores lists for people to use for score sender.
Im returning to neopets after 10 years and I can't use any program here at all due to newbie rank.
How do I rank up easily so I can start using something?
I can do the posts...but what about rep? How would I get that?
You earn +rep for exceptional participation, @(you need an account to see links). It'll come easily enough if you engage with the community in earnest instead of focusing on meeting a minimum quota. Please take a look around and see if you can find topics that you'd enjoy talking about, and if nothing jumps out at you, then you'd be welcome to post a topic of your own.
