- How does “Reputation” work? 1 answer
I have joined a few different Stack Exchange communities and I have noticed that when I join a new one, like this, my reputation points go to
1, even though I have more reputation on other Stack Exchange sub domains.
I am joining or logging into Stack Exchange via my Google account, and thought because I used the same Google account when logging in, my reputation points would transfer over.
I am not a reputation hog or overly concerned about fake internet points, but when browsing other Stack Exchanges and clicking other people's user names, I noticed (or thought I noticed) reputation from other sub domains seemed to transfer to the all sub domains. For instance, a guy in the DIY Stack Exchange has 2k reputation earned from the WordPress Stack Exchange (just an example).
So I guess my question is two parts:
- Is reputation on Stack Exchange websites cross domain?
- If so, how does one link their Stack Exchange logins?
