This question already has an answer here:

It's that time of year again. Last year, we participated in Winter Bash 2013.

For those that don't remember, users earned "hats" for their gravatars by completing certain tasks (analogous to badges). Certain actions would trigger the user receiving a hat, which their gravatar could then "wear". For example, editing a post would yield an editor-themed hat (fedora with pen) to the editor.


This event will run from 15 December 2014 to 4 January 2015. Users will be able to see their entire hat collection on winterbash2014.stackexchange.com. That site will also have a landing page, explaining the rules and other details of the event.

Individual users who don’t want to participate, don’t want to see hats, and/or are generally anti-hat will have an “I hate hats” option available. And just like last time, at the end of the event, all hats will go back into storage.

The only visual change to the Stack Exchange sites themselves will be the presence of the hats and the “I hate hats” button in the footer.

So, does Drupal Answers want to participate? Please comment, add answers below, and/or vote this question up or down (up/down votes on meta mean agree/disagree).

  • Would the hats earned in 2013 still be in our hat collection? Or do would we start with a blank slate? – Jance Nov 20 '14 at 16:12

    @Jance Pretty sure it is a blank slate. – mpdonadio Nov 20 '14 at 17:20

    @Mołot I'm commenting about the unusually high amount of spam on drupal, perhaps only beaten by meta.SE. – bjb568 Nov 30 '14 at 17:18
