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

The new league table viewable in /user shows points accumulated from associating an account. For example, the top user this week on Quant SE earned 100 rep points, but not from actually participating in the site. It seems erroneous for the league table to weigh account associations.

We now exclude these reputation bonuses from the leagues. We agree a user getting 100 rep from an association shouldn't be recognized/promoted the same way as someone who has earned 10 upvotes, etc.

I'm still seeing an association bonus apply to a league: User Catharsis's 202 rep points include a 100-point association bonus: – John Pick Apr 4 '12 at 21:09
No, you are not excluding it. See this and this new report that confirms the bug still alive and kicking. – Shadow Wizard Nov 24 '14 at 7:42
