I haven't answered/asked any questions yet on Lifehacks.SE, but I crossed the 200 rep milestone on another site(SFF.SE) a few months ago, so I have 101 reputation.

However, I am not able to answer protected questions. I haven't paid very close attention but technically I should be allowed to answer these questions.

This is the said question: How do I stop cars from tailgating?

doesn't association bonus apply?

No. As can be seen in this Meta post:

Users with 10 or more reputation can answer a protected question. However, the +100 account association bonus is ignored for this check, so you must have earned 10 or more reputation on that specific site to answer a protected question.

You must log in to answer this question.
