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 have more than 200 rep on meta.SO now, but on SO I wasn't awarded with the 100 bonus. Do I need to trigger this somehow or is the bonus only awarded if you sign up at the other SOFU-sites after having 200 rep on the first one?

If you do not have the required +200 in the network at the time of association, you don't get the bonus.

So yes, you need to unassociate and re-associate (or unassociate, log out, and log in)

thanks, that worked – Tobias Kienzler Jun 10 '10 at 10:21

IIRC, the new auto-association rules say that you should get the bonus automatically. However, try clearing all associations on your accounts page and then log out and then back in, which should trigger an association.
