I used to have a 1 rep MO account. After the SE2.0 merger, I logged in, and while the accounts are showing up associated, I have not received the association bonus.

My MO profile is still the same, though (My homepage and all are different from what I have on the rest of the network).

Looks like the openid-based account merge didn't retroactively apply the association bonus to preexisting accounts.

  • $\begingroup$ we'll need to backfill these...we'll do so later this morning and several more times as we get people's accounts all hooked up. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 25, 2013 at 10:20
  • $\begingroup$ @NickCraver ah, I see. No problem :) (Btw, how was I able to post on meta without 5 rep?) $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 25, 2013 at 10:25
  • $\begingroup$ Woot, mine just got applied. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 25, 2013 at 10:37
  • $\begingroup$ The reputation threshold for Meta has (probably temporarily) been reduced to 1. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 25, 2013 at 11:04
  • $\begingroup$ I've clicked to create a Google account-based MO account here now, just like I did on Physics SE and a few other SE, and it began with 101 reputation here. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 27, 2013 at 4:01
  • $\begingroup$ @LubošMotl Hey there :) Yes, that will work, because you created an MO account. I already had one. The MO and SE accounts were merged, bus since no creating was done no association bonus was awarded. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 27, 2013 at 5:17

Yep, there sure is...however it's granted when you create the accounts as we go, which isn't really import friendly. Luckily we already have a way to fix these up, I've just run it to grant it to everyone currently mapped up and we'll run it several more times in the coming days as we get users all mapped up to their existing Stack Exchange accounts.

If you are missing a bonus feel free to comment here and I'll run it again...and of course I'll investigate if it's still missing after that.

  • $\begingroup$ Yep, I have it now :) Thanks! $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 25, 2013 at 10:47
