I recently got 200+ reputation in Ask Ubuntu and got 100 association bonus on all the site I have connected except Stackoverflow. Is it a bug or the association bonus are not applied to Stack Overflow site?

UPDATE Just got the association bonus for Stack Overflow as well. I don't know the actual reason why the association bonus was provided two days after the other site, I think it was due to heavy traffic or site being busy.

  • It isn't instantaneous. Script is fired couple of times per hour, something like that. More busy site = longer wait. Of course if by "recently" you mean sth like "2 days ago" it may be a bug.

There was a database issue at the exact moment your award should have been awarded. I just ran a re-grant task for all those missing - you'll see your reputation is already up to date.

Note: the list in your profile has a 10 minute cache, it will take a few more minutes to refresh.

  • thank you I just got awarded association bonus.
