In our reputation audit page, there is such line near the end:

** rep from bonuses: ___

Does the use of plural word mean there are other bonuses except association, maybe secret?

Has anyone ever saw a number other 0 or 100 in there?

Yes, testers and contributors to the first version of the API received badges that also had bonuses. This is exclusive to stackapps.com. For example, see the 2k bonus here.

The badges involved were the API Beta and API Evangelist. These were awarded manually.

And yes, I agree, the "rep change" description in the reputation tab sucks. It sucks because it's really old, hasn't been used since, and we have no plans to use it again.

  • Thanks, so no plans to set new kind of bonus in the near future, or implement badges that give reputation elsewhere? :-) Jan 1, 2014 at 13:25
