Seeing as people want hats, we're signed up for hats. Yay! Visit winterbash2014.stackexchange.com starting December 15 for hat awesomeness.
If you absolutely hate hats, there'll be a button in the footer to turn them off.
Original post below:
Last year, Stack Exchange ran Winter Bash 2013, in which users earned hats which they proudly displayed upon their avatar. There was a leaderboard of hat earners:
We have the option to do it again this year!
So, here's the rundown:
- Hats are enabled on a per-site basis, if we don't want them we can disable them here
- Hats are awesome, kinda like ephemeral badges
- Users can turn off hats on a per-user basis, so if you're a hataphobe you don't have to see everyone else having fun.
- If we choose to accept, the event will run from 15 December 2014 to 4 January 2015. After the time period, all the hats go away into Last Year's Hat Bin.
- We need to decide if we want hats by December 1
So, do we like hats or hate hats?
