Should all linked accounts get the 100 bonus?
Linked account +100 rep bonus also applied to account with 200

I know that people with 200 points or more on stackoverflow, gets 100 bonus points when logs in other stack exchange forum.

But happens that I not only got 100 points at programmers, I also got them in stack overflow. Is that a bug? If I go to my reputation page on stackoverflow I cant see this 100 bonus points being tracked there as all my other pointers earned are.

All the linked accounts get the 100 reputation bonus. Use it well! :-) – Shadow Wizard Nov 7 '11 at 11:48

No, it's not a bug. You get that 100 rep so you can post answers, and chat and all that because you are already a trusted SE user.

I'm guessing your question will be downvoted, though, because it's already been asked before on MSO...

No downvote, just closing as duplicate. :) – Shadow Wizard Nov 7 '11 at 12:46
I wonder why I get 100 rep on my STACKOVERFLOW account. I understand that I should get those 100 rep on the other site, but why on Stackoverflow? – renatoargh Nov 7 '11 at 14:02
@ShadowWizard, he was lucky :-) – GUI Junkie Nov 7 '11 at 15:19
@RenatoGama, on SO, as a kind of reward for 'good' conduct. – GUI Junkie Nov 7 '11 at 15:19
RenatoGama - SO is part of the linked accounts. You get it only once though, it's not like you'll get 100 more in SO when linking another account. Hope it's more clear now? @JunkIE (pun intended ;)) - nah, don't think luck is involved. Believe me, if people wanted to downvote, we would have already seen it. :-) – Shadow Wizard Nov 7 '11 at 15:24
@ShadowWizard, great pun, I'm on Ubuntu 11.10 with Firefox 7 – GUI Junkie Nov 7 '11 at 18:14

@GUIJunkie Nothing to see here with PremKumar; he was deleted due to many rule violations and came back here yesterday playing stupid about it. He's all taken care of ;) – Andrew Barber May 6 '13 at 20:24
