Recently, I've developed a solution for bulk searching excel spreadsheets for keywords, after doing research on various sites, including superuser, and finding there was no real universal solution, I had decided to build my own.
After much testing of my solution (basically an excel spreadsheet that can search other excel spreadsheets) and finding it works reasonably well, I decided I'd do the right thing and return to post my solution and VBA code freely for anyone to use so all could benefit. I decided I'd sign up to superuser so I could start by posting it on the question on superuser. Except, I can't.
I find it's been locked for low quality answers, that my association bonus doesn't count, and the fact although I've been a good egg elsewhere, that I'm still not trusted lest I force some moderator somewhere to actually do some work.
Now naturally, I could be 'rewarded' for my eagerness to help by doing even more work by contributing to other questions, except all the questions I see are out of my depth, not in my field of knowledge. I could pointlessly ask some questions, but per SE cliche, they'd likely be closed as duplicates or they wouldn't be very high quality questions.
I could of course try to answer easier questions, but classically far more capable people will have already answered them, and answered them better. Likewise for grammatical corrections (which only really earn 2 points per correction).
And all I really want to do is simply post my custom crafted VBA code based excel spreadsheet of which anyone can use the code from (or just use the spreadsheet itself) into a question I had previously come across in order to help others.
This is, to be fair, a common problem I encounter across a lot of SE sites. I see that 'one question' I actually know something about, but realise it requires I have 10 rep, so then I don't bother signing up, and so thus I don't earn the rep. I'm a busy man, I don't have time to jump through hoops just to try to do a single good deed. It's at a point it'd be easier for me to register a wholly new account on obscure forum and post my solution there than to tack it on to an SE site.
I'm sure regular users of SE won't blink at 10 rep, but for someone whose pushed for time, it's more of a resistance. It's actually easier for me to essentially pseudo complain rather than lurk for hours for the vague possibility I can answer a question before someone else does in a highly competitive environment.
