The gardening and landscaping site just went into private beta. When I logged into the new site for the first time my reputation was at "1". Is this correct?...or is something wrong? I was assuming that my reputation would follow me and that I would start off with more.
Area 51 reputation isn't tied to particular proposals; instead, it's for the overall A51 site itself. You haven't lost any rep here, but no, sorry, it doesn't transfer there with you.
