I found this question on Google:

Loop without 'looping'

And I thought it was very interesting. So I came up with my own answer and signed up for codegolf.stackexchange

Because I have almost 6000 reputation on stackoverflow, I was awarded with 100 reputation points.

But the question mentioned above is protected, and says that I need at least 10 reputation points to answer.

Is reputation awarded like this not count towards things like this?

    \$\begingroup\$ No, the 100 starting rep don't count towards protected questions. \$\endgroup\$ – Martin Ender Jul 15 '14 at 22:53
  • \$\begingroup\$ You are correct m.buettner. I'll vote to close as dupe \$\endgroup\$ – Savvas Dalkitsis Jul 15 '14 at 22:54

The message says you need to earn at least 10 reputation on the site you are posting on.

The association bonus doesn't count.
