What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I like the Constantipolitan hat, but I didn't earn it after posting an answer on meta (maybe I'll get it after this question?).

So, is it only for per-site metas, or should it work on meta.stackoverflow.com too?

I want that hat!

Might I suggest: earn it on another site, screencap your gravatar wearing it, and then make it your MSO-only gravatar? :D – Aarthi Dec 19 '12 at 2:01
@false hats was more fun! – bfavaretto Dec 19 '12 at 2:04

Have you seen @Aarthi's hat: This is special - it is even visible "from outside" also for anonymous users. – false Dec 19 '12 at 2:41
@false You have to opt-in user-by-user on SO -- but hats are on by default on MSO! :D – Aarthi Dec 19 '12 at 2:44
@Aarthi - reassuring, thought you were hatter than us! – false Dec 19 '12 at 2:48
@false gasp Never, good sir! – Aarthi Dec 19 '12 at 2:49

This is fixed now -- Constantipolitan is being correctly awarded on Stack Overflow.

The bug was caused by the fact that Meta Stack Overflow and Stack Overflow have somewhat of a special relationship, in that your MSO user id does not necessarily equal your SO user id (unlike other meta/parent sites).

I got mine earlier, presumably because my MSO id is the same as my SO id. (Yes I have been around that long). – ChrisF Dec 19 '12 at 15:12

But have you seen my Constantipolitan hat? I seem to have misplaced it.

You need to have a post (question or answer) on Meta with score of 1 or more. You don't have such yet. – Shadow Wizard Dec 19 '12 at 15:18
