- What is the association bonus? 1 answer
I have seen and experienced reputation 1 at the beginning. But I have encountered a few people where they have already got 101 rep in their wallets without answering or asking even once.
As far as I know, sharing reputation among SE sites wasn't allowed. So, is it that the employees of SE are given 101 rep at the beginning for proper maintenance and such?
