Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

You already have 704 reputation on Stack Overflow, so any account you create on the Stack Exchange network which uses the same credentials as that account, you will automatically get 100 free reputation to start you off (get you past some reputation limits). – animuson Dec 8 '11 at 19:28

I think setting up another stack exchange user, on say and linking the two gives you a boost first time you do it.

You got 100 bonus points for associating your SO account (which is now done automatically) with a new account created on one of the Stack Exchange sites (in your case, Ask Ubuntu).

You can see changes to your reputation (including bonuses), by accessing the reputation page:

You should see at the very top, something like:

total votes: X
-- bonuses   (100)  <- THIS

You created an Ask Ubuntu account today. From the FAQ:

If you are an experienced Stack Exchange network user with 200 or more reputation on at least one site, you will receive a starting +100 reputation bonus to get you past basic new user restrictions. This will happen automatically on all current Stack Exchange sites where you have an account, and on any other Stack Exchange sites at the time you log in
