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

Before any new site would get +100 rep so I could use the core features.

Now I have to link them, then disassociate them and relink them to get the +100 rep

Is this intended site behavior?

This may be the same as what was reported in this question and/or this question. – Pops Nov 16 '10 at 23:08
No, none of the "work arrounds" actually work. I have to disassociate and re-associate on each new site. This is not for old accounts, and I have had more than 200 rep on my GameDev account for a while now. This is a bug, and I think it should be looked in to. – AttackingHobo Nov 16 '10 at 23:18
Oh, just coincidence, then. +1. – Pops Nov 18 '10 at 19:47

There was a regression earlier this week with regards to auto-association and the +100 rep bonus.

It has been fixed, and I've gone through and fixed the bonus on all the affected accounts I can find. There may still be some out there, but a simple clear/re-associate will grant the bonus as expected.
