I have posted many questions , a few answers in stack overflow site and stack exchange net work sites.
But I am confused to some extent and curious to know about how much they are really helps the user.
Aside from badges and reputations I earn,I wish to know the usefulness of these badges and reputations. If reports are not sent at intervals to ASSAM state,KOLKATA west bengal state and ARUNACHAL PRADESH STATE OF -INDIA[My home country] and also to the bank where I worked for about 37 years.Postings are visible only to the user and those who have 10000 reputation.
As a result of what is considered my inadequate knowledge in English language and other subjects of stack exchange network,I have reached a state when I am no longer being respected which is ignominy for all members of the family also to which I belong.
Can you restore our honor because badges and reputations are always for helpful posts .My attempt is to post this question using literature,art to construct imaginary worlds and settings. I hope I will not fail in my attempt.Two POINTS HELPFUL POSTS AND ITS USEFULNESS TO THE USER MATTERS MOST.

    $\begingroup$ Hi Abhijit, this is currently a very confusing question to read and I’m not sure you’ve understood what this site is designed for. If you could clarify your Worldbuilding question, this will be much less likely to be deleted. As is, this feels more like a question about the worldbuilding site rather than worldbuilding itself, so I’ve requested a migration to Meta. $\endgroup$ – Dubukay Jan 31 at 7:46
  • $\begingroup$ The OP is not fully fluent in English and is suffering cultural & cognitive dissonance concerning how SE functions. Most likely he feels he is not being treated with respect and that reflects on his family. He is asking if the badges & reputation points represent the usefulness of answers posted. $\endgroup$ – a4android Jan 31 at 11:20
  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Worldbuilding Meta, AbhijitBagchi, this is the site where general questions about Worldbuilding SE & its practices are considered. My advice to you is that stack exchange is not sufficiently cultural sensitive or useful for someone like yourself. It tends to be too prosecutory and reductive in its approach. Also, it will be difficult to deal with for someone like yourself who is less fluent in English. I wish you good fortune & every success in developing imaginary worlds with literature & art. You can do that successfully yourself. Here will be not prove helpful or useful. $\endgroup$ – a4android Jan 31 at 11:28

I have posted many questions , a few answers in stack overflow site and stack exchange net work sites. But I am confused to some extent and curious to know about how much they are really helps the user.

The entire concept of SE communities is to help users solve problems they have in a specific field: i.e. travel.SE deals with problems about traveling, worldbuilding.SE with problems about worldbuilding, and so on.

If the question are on topic for the community where they are posted, they can get helpful answers. Else, not. Think of it like the following: if a man has a flat tire on his car and he calls his plumber to get it fixed, who is to blame if no help can come? The man or the plumber?

We have various ways to help new users learning the ropes of our community: the first is having them read and understand the help and the tour. If they fail to do so, our other method is by putting their post on hold and asking for improvements, followed then by the voting system, which gives an indication of how much the Community values the contribution of the user.

I want to know the usefulness of these badges and reputations.

Those badges and reputation are useful within the broader community of SE, as an indication of how much the user contribution is useful. The higher the reputation, the more valued and respected is the contribution of the user to the community where they belong. The usefulness of the reputation outside SE is, at best, disputed.

If reports are not sent at intervals to ASSAM state,KOLKATA west bengal state and ARUNACHAL PRADESH STATE OF -INDIA[My home country] and also to the bank where I worked for about 37 years.

No, we don't bother sending reports about user's reputation to anyone. We have just pages showing the ranking of the users in different time frames, the so called reputation league. For what I stated above, there is no meaning in sending these reputation rankings around.

Postings are visible only to the user and those who have 10000 reputation.

I don't know where did you get this idea, if you looked at the section of the help about privileges you would have found the explanation: 10k reputation is needed to view deleted posts only.

I have reached a state when I am no longer being respected which is ignominy for all members of the family also to which I belong.

Your posts in worldbuilding have received poor scoring, as a consequence of their confuse nature and being quite not on topic for the community. It appears same has happened for other communities where you have posted. However, since we value our user's privacy, there is no way to relate a user to a physical person, unless it's the user itself to disclose details about themselves, like you appear you are doing stating where you live and where you worked.

Moreover, as stated above, the reputation has a meaning within the community where it is earned, outside of it is just a number with little significance.

If you want to improve your reputation:

  • understand the scope of each community where you post
  • provide clear, on topic and possibly interesting questions and answers

The rest will come.

In addition to this good answer I have a bitter pill for you to swallow:

To participate on Stack Exchange, you must learn the English language.

English is actually a "common" language for many countries, closest to "global language" we have and literally most used language on the Internet. We don't need to like it, we don't need to accept it, but we need to recognize this fact.

Your English does not need to be perfect, but it needs to be good enough for people to understand you, and for you to understand the rules of service, and other users. You can't help anyone if you don't understand what help he needs, or if he can't understand what help you are trying to provide. Other users will often help with spelling or phrasing, but they have to understand what you are trying to say in the first place.

    $\begingroup$ I'm a bit of a grammar nazi, to be honest, so I do a ton of minor edits like that. On the plus side, there's a gold badge for doing a ton of edits ;) $\endgroup$ – Gryphon Feb 1 at 13:59
  • $\begingroup$ @Gryphon I'm doing my best, and when it is not enough, I appreciate help. "Grammar nazi" who actually goes there and helps with grammar instead of just shaming other users is the best kind ;) $\endgroup$ – Mołot Feb 1 at 14:01
  • $\begingroup$ It wasn't bad, just a couple of missing "the"s, I've seen native english speakers with far worse grammar/spelling. $\endgroup$ – Gryphon Feb 1 at 14:46
