I just received a +100 reputation bonus; according to the banner at the top of the page, it was because my associated English Usage account had reached 200 reputation points. But I had only created the English Usage account a few minutes before, and it was (and still is) at 1 reputation, not 200.

Either the message is incorrectly describing the reason for the bonus, or the bonus was awarded prematurely.

So there were 2 bugs here:

  • The association bonus was correctly awarded on math, but with the wrong message.
  • The association bonus wasn't granted on creation of the English user as it should have been.

Both of these are fixed in a build going out now, and I've backfilled bonuses for users affected. Thanks for the heads up, looking at your data specifically helped me track this down.
