Possible Duplicates:
Should all linked accounts get the 100 bonus?
How does “Reputation” work?

Recently, I received 100 rep because one of my accounts hit 200+ reputation. All the accounts received this addition, except Stack Overflow. Why not?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


You did receive the association bonus. Take a look at https://stackoverflow.com/reputation, which provides a detailed breakdown of your reputation score. See at the top where it says --bonuses (100)? That's the association bonus that's been granted to you.

  • If I got a +100 bonus, why is my rep still 169, before and after the bonus? -- 2011-07-18 rep +4 = 169 -- 2011-07-27 rep 0 = 169 Shouldn't the last entry say 100 = 269? – TookTheRook Jul 28 '11 at 14:01

    Look at the rest of your rep report. You'll see that your rep starts counting from 101, not 1 since the beginning. The association bonus is just general "on my account", not "on this day". – Rebecca Chernoff Jul 28 '11 at 16:01

I would suggest emailing team@stackoverflow.com They're quite responsive and can probably address this quite quickly.

    That answer is ancient; reassociating really shouldn't do anything anymore – Michael Mrozek Jul 28 '11 at 4:21
