I saw a question that I wanted to post an answer to, so I joined Puzzling.

My reputation on other sites allowed me to immediately get the +100 bonus... which should allow me to answer the question. Yet, even after logging out, and logging in again, I still can't.

What's going on?

100 pts, yet not allowed to answer a question

The association bonus doesn't count for protected questions (or "highly active questions", as they're now called). You need to earn 10 reputation on this site before that block disappears.
