Why have the +200 reputation points for my Silver Yearling Badge not been added to my superuser account, but they have been added to all my other linked accounts?

Edit: After checking more carefully, I've noticed that the +200 reputation only applied to some of my accounts. How is this determined?

    Yep, we're giving out free rep and additional privileges based on who's been registered the longest.

OK, let me explain:

  • You don't get +200 rep when you're awarded a Yearling badge
  • Yearling badge is awarded if you earn 200 rep in the last calendar year
  • You get a +100 rep bonus if you have atleast one account on the network with rep > 200.

Your reputation graph says you've been awarded the bonus. SO I'm not sure what exactly that you're expecting..

  • Thanks. I was confused, but I understand now :)
