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

This question already has an answer here:

Recently I passed 200 reputation and got the 100 point Association Bonus.

For the week, it says I only earned 105 reputation, then it says under my profile that I earned 210. Does the association not help? Do I quality for the Mortarboard badge?

Laaaaaaaaaame Awesome!

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Because association bonus doesn't count. – Yu Hao Jul 30 '13 at 1:53
Sooooo, do I get a badge or not? = No, not with that association bonus you don't. Don't feel as awesome anymore eh ? – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Jul 30 '13 at 1:54

The association bonus does not count towards the Mortarboard badge.

If you ever have a question about badges, see the full list of badges and their descriptions, and be sure to search on Meta first.

(I answered this because I screwed up my duplicate close vote; otherwise I would have just VTCed.)

It's still weird though, 25+25+25+35=110. More than what it says I've gotten this week. Not to mention, that's just for yesterday. – TheWizKid95 Jul 30 '13 at 2:00
@The I would make a separate bug report or support request concerning that. I agree, it looks odd, but I don't actually have the time to look into it at the moment personally – Emrakul Jul 30 '13 at 2:01
@TheWizKid95 a couple of things: (1) "this week" started at midnight Sunday UTC, not midnight Sunday in your time zone (2) due to caching and other things, that dropdown for your account does not always match your reputation tab. – Aaron Bertrand Jul 30 '13 at 2:04
