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

I had an Stack Overflow account earlier (created in August 2011), which was recently merged with a new account I created in December 2012.

When reputation for the new account reached 200, I got the association bonus on sites I joined with that new account. After the merge, though, I didn't get the association bonus for sites which I joined before creating the new account. Is this normal?

For example, I haven't received the association bonus here on Meta, which I joined earlier.

Easy, folks. Abin's current account is in good standing. Let's focus on the actual issue here, which is the association bonus (or lack thereof). – Adam Lear Jan 9 '13 at 4:58
Yeah, this sounds like a potential bug to me. This might be an issue of reputation taking a while to update, but I'll ping someone tomorrow to take a closer look. – Adam Lear Jan 9 '13 at 5:03

Your association bonus has now been granted. I'll take a look into the merge case a bit more but this seems incredibly rare, and is currently picked up by a network-wide scan we run every couple of weeks and has only a handful of users.
