I associated my account, but I'm still at 1. Why didn't I get a reputation bonus?


As stated by Jeff Atwood here:

There is a +100 rep boost for every association you make if either the source or target account has at least 200 reputation.

So as you didn't have 200 reputation already (I see you have 77 now on SO), you didn't get the +100 boost.

  • So what happens if you get 200 shortly after associating? Do we really have to jump through the hoops of dissociating and re-associating—assuming it’s possible? – Synetech Jul 29 '09 at 17:39
  • @Synetech: don't know... guess you'll have to test it out ;-) – fretje Jul 29 '09 at 17:59
  • I don't think you can de-associate, or I would have tried it (something went wrong when I associated and I only got the bonus on SO not on MSO.) – Perpetual Motion Goat Jul 29 '09 at 18:14
