My StackOverflow reputation suddenly increased by 101 points. It shows, in, that I've always had this reputation bonus: when I first created my account on 2/23 it says that I had 105 reputation, even though this is impossible to start with that much rep.

Additional info: I had not been able to access StackOverflow for ~5 minutes before this happened. Also, I've already tried the "Trigger Reputation Recalc" button on the bottom of the page.

You reached 200 reputation and got the association bonus.

The bonus is not given a date in the reputation log, for some reason.

Hmmm... thanks. I never knew about this. I guess the association bonus also gives me a +100 on the site I got to 200 rep from. –  JavaAndCSharp Jun 25 '11 at 3:13
@JavaAndCSharp: Yes, it gives you +100 on every site. –  mmyers Jun 25 '11 at 3:14
hold on, looks like he have 200+ on Stack Overflow only, where did he get 100+ on Stack Overflow itself? –  YOU Jun 25 '11 at 3:29
@YOU That's status-bydesign. –  Anna Lear Jun 25 '11 at 3:39
Hum, I see, strange enough though. Thanks @Anna Lear. –  YOU Jun 25 '11 at 3:40
@YOU Yeah, it surprised me too the other day when I went looking to see if it was a bug. –  Anna Lear Jun 25 '11 at 3:48
