After logging in for the first time at, I went back to StackOverflow and received the following message:

"You've associated your Stack Overflow and Stack Overflow accounts: +100 reputation"

Anyone has had the same problem?

I wish I had this problem more often. –  Jon Seigel May 19 '10 at 22:53
You mean the message should be Stack Overflow and Super User accounts? –  YOU May 20 '10 at 3:09
How is this "bydesign"? –  ChrisF May 21 '10 at 19:35
The bug is the nonsensical message, not the amount reputation given. Seems like this probably isn't "bydesign" –  redmoskito May 26 '10 at 14:53
Months later: @S.Mark, yes, I'm talking about the message, not the bonus itself. –  Bruno Brant Dec 11 '10 at 14:05

There was a minor issue when the "wrong" site was displayed here -- which I corrected. But, the +100 can be awarded on all sites -- one time only per site.

This issue was re-introduced (technically, an entirely different cause; but the same manifested symptoms). It will be fixed with the next deploy.

@Jeff, given the recent duplicate, I guess it's not fixed completely:… –  Arjan May 25 '10 at 5:32
Yes I just got this about 2 minutes ago which lead me to this question. –  msarchet May 26 '10 at 20:28
I got +100 rep on SO just now because of this... because I had >200 rep on SO? Is it a reward for hitting 200 rep, to get a free 100 rep boost? –  Corey May 31 '10 at 3:40
I am experiencing the same bug after associating Server Fault and SO accounts. To clarify, I do get the points (that's fine), but the message says "Stack Overflow and Stack Overflow". –  Steve Tjoa Jun 1 '10 at 3:22
Confirmed this bug just now :) –  Andrew Austin Jun 4 '10 at 18:12
still not corrected, just got it. –  jcomeau_ictx Nov 13 '10 at 4:49
@jcom totally different issue –  Jeff Atwood Nov 13 '10 at 5:03
I've seen the "totally different issue" right now when signing up to Android for the first time. –  sharptooth Nov 15 '10 at 8:36
And btw I didn't get +100 on Android which is kind of inconvenient - I can't vote, can' comment, can't anything. –  sharptooth Nov 15 '10 at 8:40

It's not a bug it's a feature! No really!

In the comments, specifically:

as long as at least one of the accounts in the “pair” being associated has > 200 rep, the +100 bonus will apply on both sites (but only once per site in total) -- Jeff Atwood

I just got that bug today. I just made a serverfault account (I thought I had one but could'nt find it) I'd post an image but I'm too n00b to be allowed that..

"You've associated your Stack Overflow and Stack Overflow accounts: +100 reputation"

and I didn't get the +100 on ServerFault either! (or this one!)

and now the question I asked on ServerFault yesterday just disappeared! Thanks guys. –  KevinDeus Nov 16 '10 at 16:38

Is this supposed to be fixed? I just saw this message:

You've associated your Stack Overflow and Stack Overflow accounts: +100 reputation
