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

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 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
