I was just wondering if the reputation from both my Super User and Stack Overflow accounts should be combined?

On one of them I have 600~ and on the other I have 100.

Are they supposed to be separate?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.


Yes, they're separate. That's by design.


What Hyppy said is true but just to elaborate further... Just because you are a programming wiz does not mean you are also a Database/cooking/English/Gaming Expert. You have to prove your worth on each of the sites and show that you deserve to have additional privileges. On a related note- if are member of a Stack Exchange site with over 200 rep and you link your account with another stack exchange site they do give you a 100 rep bonus. At least you can then comment, upvote, and do other basic functions on the site.

  • that makes good sense, thanks Kyle. – Chris Buckler Apr 20 '11 at 17:00
  • Does that bonus occur if you joined both sites below 100 and then progressed on one and not the other? – music2myear Apr 21 '11 at 17:56

    I joined several of the sites, got my rep past 200 on a few of them and then joined another of the sites and then I got the 100 point bonus on all sites. SO the trigger is linking an account to another but it affects all your linked accounts. – Andrew Lambert Apr 22 '11 at 5:46
