Yesterday I registered in Meta Stack Overflow and I got the +100 association bonus. In SO, I got more than 200 reputation points and I didn't obtained Mortarboard badge:

Earned at least 200 reputation in a single day

Are this 100 points not taken in account in daily reputation for >= 200 daily reputation badges?


If I check I can see at the end:

earned at least 200 reputation on 1 days

But still no Mortarboard badge awarded.

From the Badge FAQ for Mortarboard:

  • Reputation points earned for associating accounts or for accepting other users' answers to your own questions do not count for the badge.

So you did not earn badge because you actually earned 137 (237-100) reputation yesterday.
