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 copied my profile from StackOverflow and I was under the impression that this means I should start with 101 reputation instead of 1.

Is this a bug or did I misunderstand Jeff on the podcast (from a couple of weeks back) ?

Edit: I just cleared all associations and started over and I it worked as expected.I am guessing I did last associated before the feature was implemented correctly. Accepting Jeff's answer and closing since it is not relevant for new people doing the same thing.

I think people might get you up to 100 rep anyway if they keep upvoting. – Tyler Carter Aug 6 '09 at 22:09

This feature has changed some over time, so whether you got the +100 or not depends on when you did it.

Email us for specifics.

I think it must have been the same day you blogged about the feature (I read about it on the blog and tried it then) ... I am suspecting either your suggestion or @Chacha102 suggestion, but if no one else is complaining then it must be working as expected now. – Pat Aug 7 '09 at 17:04

If you did not have 200 reputation on the site you associated your account with, it will not work. The key is to associate with the one that has 200 or more rep. The copy has nothing to do with it.

He has (currently) 7316 rep over on StackOverflow. – John Fouhy Aug 6 '09 at 22:43
Right, but if he didn't click associate on the Stack Overflow account, and instead of Serverfault, it wouldn't register from what I've heard – Tyler Carter Aug 6 '09 at 22:46
This could be it, thing is it happened a few weeks ago I am not so sure, it is possible that I associated my meta account with superuser account instead of SO account. – Pat Aug 7 '09 at 17:00

In your case, you should have more rep.

Which site were you on when you associated your accounts?
