It's that time of year again. Last year, we participated in Winter Bash 2015. This is not a duplicate yet. Each year we have gauge interest. Once the event is over, we will close it as a duplicate.

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 19 December 2016 to 8 January 2017. Users will be able to see their entire hat collection on winterbash2016.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).

    @NoSssweat Probably has nothing to do with the fact that the question has been copy-pasta since the 2013 version...

    @NoSssweat We normally get an email from the CM team about it. I guess they are just assuming all sites are in now.
