How do reputation bonuses for associations between accounts work?

In some place I heared that if I link an account from an Stack Exchange page to another that has more than 200 rep, then the first account will have +100 rep.

I recently reached 200 rep on my Stack Overflow account, however none of my other accounts (that I have aready linked) on SuperUser and ServerFault got more points. How does this work?

  • Decouple all your accounts and then relink them. Bingo, bango, 100 points and there you go.

  • Long history: before logging in to Super User of Server Fault, I de-associated those two from Stack OVerflow. Now, when I logged in to those it gave me the message of +100 reputation, but I had no new reputation. Any help? Commented Jul 14, 2010 at 16:25
  • Are you sure? On SU it shows you have +100 from the association.

  • It can take a few minutes while changes propagate through the system and caches are cleared. Some "immediately" awarded badges can take two days to appear.

  • Yup, and for some reason I didn't get +100 at SU (I already had about 190 points), but got +100 at SO. Weird. Commented Jul 14, 2010 at 21:30
