Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

This question is a two parter.

First, for some reason I got a +100 rep boost on all my accounts because of math.stackexchange despite the fact that My accounts have been associated for weeks without the rep boost (except for physics during the private beta). Is this a new decision?

Second, If it is intentional, I assume that getting 100 rep for associating my math.stackexchange account with my math.stackexchange account is a bug. Sorry that I couldn't grab a screen shot before clearing the notice but I had a banner that said "+100 Rep for associating Mathematics with Mathematics" or something similiar.

I also just realized that this might have been better placed at meta.stackexchange but I only just learned of its existence, my apologies. However, the +100 rep happened on SO as well so I guess not all is lost! – crasic Nov 15 '10 at 9:20
actually, this here is the right site. Meta Stack Exchange is for the old Stack Exchange 1.0 sites (where people paid to get their own sites about whatever they wanted) that are dying out. – Pops Nov 15 '10 at 15:32

This is probably caused by this bug that was fixed recently.

This is a bug in the message displayed, not the association bonus itself.

It has been fixed on dev, and will probably go out later today.

Well I got the 100 Points... Or do you mean that the message should have been different? – crasic Nov 15 '10 at 19:11
@crasic - you were supposed to get the bonus, but the message was buggy. The message has been fixed (or will be, once we deploy new code anyway). – Kevin Montrose Nov 15 '10 at 19:27
I recently associated with the boardgames stack exchange site, and didn't receive the +100 bonus. Same bug? – George Stocker Nov 18 '10 at 14:49
