I am wondering how my friend has managed to get 151 reputation on the Area 51 network.


However when I click on the reputation tab, it shows no reputation activity. He has 0 answers and 0 questions. Should the reputation display 101 or the additional reputation be shown in the reputation activity window?

Association bonus gives you 100 reputation

Verifying your email gives 50 more

At stackoverflow I can see my Association Bonus(100 points) at my reputation list. Why Area 51 doesn't show it? – kamaci Dec 21 '12 at 13:15
@kamaci - the Area51 code base was forked from the primary one years ago, major changes like the reputation overhaul didn't go there, since Area51 itself is getting a major overhaul in the coming months we're not spending a ton of development effort to make the current one match 100% – Nick Craver Dec 21 '12 at 14:00

Your friend reached 200 reputation on another site and got the associate account +100 bonus. Every site he joins with Stack Exchange will now have a min of 101 reputation.
