My reputation on Stack Overflow is 200; so every account, including Stack Overflow gained the 100 point bonus. However, when I view my Stack Overflow account from, e.g. SuperUser accounts tab, it still shows 200, not 300.

It is definitely a bug.

    It's called caching.

This is a caching issue. Given a certain amount of time the account list on Super User will show the correct amount of reputation for your Stack Overflow account.

  • @sindikat Your account tab on SU now shows 306 reputation for you SO.
