Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Talk about giving with one hand and taking away with the other.

See this question for an explanation of the issue in detail. I thought it was only for the blog site, but apparently it involves hats, too.

Seriously, this is getting tiresome. I'm close to 100K rep among the various SE sites I belong to, and I think I've earned the right for my login to be known by now, and not to be told

Are there any devs reading this who can help? Or am I being "handed my hat" in another sense?

I pinged a developer about this. Hopefully this should be resolved soon! – Aarthi Dec 19 '12 at 1:24
There's a hat for that. – Chris Gerken Dec 19 '12 at 3:02
