I created an account SuperUser earlier today. When creating my account it correctly associated with my existing accounts and I received a bonus of 100 reputation.

I also received 20 reputation due to two questions being migrated to SuperUser from WebApps that had a single up vote each. So now I have a total of 121 reputation.

Whilst having a look around I noticed that one of my migrated posts was marked as accepted.

The question was migrated from WebApps on Apr 11 (with one up vote) and then marked as accepted on SuperUser on May 3.

I haven't received the 15 reputation for this accepted answer. I have checked my /reputation page and also triggered a rep recalc and it still doesn't appear.

Is this by design or is this a bug?

I've fixed up/improved the way accepts are handled in code so that the 15 rep (the vote and rep) will now go to the answer owner it goes with. Note this will not give the 2 rep to the acceptor (at this time), that's a very different/more expensive hookup compared to what we currently do.

This will be fixed in 2 stages, it'll take the next build to fix the code so the future is all set, then we'll follow that up with a database push that'll fix up history.

All affected users will be recalced when this happens, giving them the accept reputation they were missing.
