Why is it that when we associate our account between meta, SO and super user we get 100 reputation points, provided on one site reputation points is at least 200?
I am not criticizing or disagreeing with this feature at all.
But what is the rationale behind it? Like we get reps for posting a good question, good answer. Makes sense!
But when we are associating our accounts, we are merely updating our profile, telling other members that we have accounts on other sites too. So why 100 reputation point for this?
In other words, how this act (of associating accounts) helps the community?
I searched meta before posting it, but couldn't find relevant discussion. I apologize if it has already been discussed. Kindly help me with this confusion.
Thanks for your time.
