Is there a delay before getting your Winter Bash hats once you meet the requirements to get them?
I accepted by clicking
I Love Hats and logged in. Meanwhile, I meet the requirements for some hats, but I can't see them anywhere. (They are still grayed out in the Winter Bash page.)
It obviously started, because I can see users collecting them already (not just the December 16th 2012 one).
Let's take this present post as an example. It was posted 45 minutes ago, and I got an upvote. I meet the requirements for the
Constantipolitan Hat. But I still don't have it. I should have earned a few other hats before posting this question, and I don't have them either.
Is it just a delay or a real problem?
