What is meta?
Here's how it works:

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

What is the exact source of the 101 point reputation bonus I get every time I create a linked account on another trilogy/area51 site?

I ask because I currently have linked accounts on 7 sites and all of them but ServerFault have at least 101. My ServerFault score is only 11.

The breakdown is as follows:

1   - Free!!!
100 - Association Bonus if you have more than 200 rep on 1 SE site

Try logging out and back in (on Server Fault) to get the association bonus on Server Fault. Alternatively, you can force a reset by selecting Clear All Associations on your accounts tab in your user profile.

Logging out and in won't help; you need to reassociate the account – Michael Mrozek Aug 13 '10 at 4:44
Logging in and out doesn't seem to help. @Waiwai How can I reassociate it? – Nathan Taylor Aug 13 '10 at 4:45
@Michael Actually, association checks are performed during login. – waiwai933 Aug 13 '10 at 4:49
Not if the account is already associated; he needs to disassociate them first (which is done through a button on the accounts tab) – Michael Mrozek Aug 13 '10 at 4:51
Using the clear associations button fixed it. I now have 111 on SU. Thanks guys! @Wai you should post your comment as an answer so I can accept it. – Nathan Taylor Aug 13 '10 at 4:58
