Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

I just had my old and new Stackoverflow accounts merged recently. Before having them merged, I associated my new account with all the other sites. I went and looked today and found that after the merge I was no longer associated. I clicked on the associate button and was awarded 100 points, again, as I had not associated my old account with anything. I believe this was because of the difference in User IDs.

I'm guessing this will be erased on the next rep recalculation. Am I right?

Otherwise, just reporting a bug.

The bug about merge / re-associate I'll leave for Jeff et al.

I've just done a rep recalc on you SO and MSO accounts, and in both cases you gained 2 or 3 points (usually down to downvotes against deleted users/posts).

So no: you won't lose any points in the next rep recalc, unless the code changes.

If you're rep gets recalced you would likely lose the bonus from both. I have heard in the past that people got recalced and lost their association bonus, so I would imagine it would be double for you?

I don't think recalc loses the bonus unless there is a problem on the accounts... – Marc Gravell Aug 2 '09 at 7:15
