- How does “Reputation” work? 1 answer
I've found many sites in the Stack Exchange network.
When I join to Meta Stack Overflow, the new account received +100 reputation on my account of both Stack Overflow (as "Association Bonus") and on Meta Stack Overflow.
But when I join other sites such as Electrical Engineering, Photography, etc., it only gives me +100 reputation on the new site, but doesn't give the bonus on Stack Overflow anymore.
I want to know why I only received an Association Bonus on Stack Overflow when I joined Meta Stack Overflow?
