Not long ago I suddenly received 100 points in every Stack Exchange site I was a member of. I got 100 points just for signing up in Meta Stack Exchange.

Is this a glitch, or a planned change?

    Not a bug, and not a new change either. You reached 200 points on your Life hacks account so all of our accounts were awarded a 100 point bonus. From now on out all future accounts you create will be given that same bonus. – Martijn Pieters May 28 '15 at 17:37
  • Thanks for pointing out where i can find the answer, and sorry for not doing a good enough job of searching. – Terry May 28 '15 at 17:37

You get 100 reputation points every time you sign up for a new Stack Exchange site once you become a trusted member (have at least 200 rep on at least one other site). You should see this message:

    Not because they signed up anywhere new, no. – Martijn Pieters May 28 '15 at 17:37
  • I didn't get this message, instead it was abou8 icons of the groups i am in with 100+ at the side. – Terry May 28 '15 at 17:38
  • You are missing some important points about the association bonus. The major one being the requirement of gaining 200 rep on a site. – Oded May 28 '15 at 18:02
  • I said "because you're a trusted member". I'm very well aware that trusted members gained at least 200 rep on any site. – George Chalhoub May 28 '15 at 18:03
