I've just registered here, got a karma of 1 and can not upvote anything with it. How to raise it to 5?

  1. ask questions
  2. answer other questions
  3. wait some time - karma will grow!

You are wrong. Nothing totalitarian. This is called meritocracy. And yours is not an answer, so get a downvote for abusing the answer option.

Seeing someone with high karma value means that some users felt that this person gave helpful answers, or asked good questions, and those other users expressed their appreciation giving the karma. So when a user sees an answer from someone with high karma, and another answer from a user whose only desire is to acquire some karma for nothing, users would be right to prefer first users' advises.

I'd like to like Libre Office, but I sense a lack of charity in the community. Also, as I understand it, gabix, you loss Karma for downvoting so Karma's a b!tch dude; it works both ways. Try being more charitable in future.
