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

Does account association actually stifle growth? Take me for example. There are at least three other SE sites I want to join, but I am discouraged from doing so until I reach 200 rep on a site I'm already a member of. Anyone else notice this? Could this be a problem?

Possible fix: Add 100 rep to all of a user's existing accounts also when he hits 200 rep on any site.

Note: When I posted this question I was under the 200 rep requirement for site affiliation bonuses. – John Nov 1 '10 at 18:21

Why are you discouraged from doing so? Join now, and once you get 200 rep on a site, you can then remove the associations only to add them right back. You'll get the bonus when you re-associate.

Hmmm..Didn't think of that. Good idea! I will do that now. Thanks! – John Nov 1 '10 at 18:18
