I have just created a new account on networkengineering.stackexchange.com. How can I earn 100 rep on my StackOverflow account? I've read a number of posts on stackexchange regarding account associations, but I still don't quite understand how to gain this 100 rep.

    "you associate accounts of two or more Stack Exchange network sites, and at least one of those accounts already has 200 or more reputation: +100 on each site (awarded a maximum of one time per site)" – nicael Dec 21 '15 at 15:19
  • So you only get +100 rep when you have 200 or more rep in your account? – Chloe Dec 21 '15 at 15:24

    Yes. You need to have 200 or more rep (on any site), in order to get the +100 rep association bonus. – Oded Dec 21 '15 at 15:25
