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

If one has already joined several sites, and then achieves 200 reputation on a site, will this automatically +100 the other sites? Or is the +100 only for newly joined sites after having 200 reputation?

Sort of.

You need to unassociate your account that recently hit 200, then re-add it, and you should get the 100-point association bonus.

EDIT: Note that you can only get the 100 bonus once on a given site, even if you associate it with multiple other sites that have over 200.

I thought you get 100 points once, regardless of how many sites. I've been over 200 on SO and Super User for a while, yet when I joined Web Apps and Pro Webmasters, I only got +100. If you are right, shouldn't I have gotten +200? – Thomas Owens Jul 16 '10 at 22:04
@Thomas -- you do only get +100 once, but if you haven't gotten it yet and one account goes over the 200 threshold, you might be able to get it the first time by un-associating, then re-associating. – tvanfosson Jul 16 '10 at 22:25
That's what I thought. Just the way the answer was worded made me have second thoughts. Thanks for clearing that up. – Thomas Owens Jul 17 '10 at 0:51
