I have participated in the Winter Bash and can see that many users have profile icons with hats on it. I think I earned one hat, but cant see on my profile? Am I missing something?

Go to your hats count on your profile, click it, then click on one of the hats.

I click on my hats and it says "Your Hats loading..." and nothing more. It must be trying to run something that is blocked from work. At least I know now why I can see others' hats but not mine. – thursdaysgeek Dec 26 '13 at 22:53

When you earned a hat, you'll be notified by the Winter Bash notifier in the title bar:

hat notifier

And you'll find a hat count in your profile:

hat count

To wear a hat, click on the count and pick a hat to wear:

hat selection

Alternatively, you can click on your profile picture (on your profile page) to switch hats. If you click the circled hat again, you'll remove it.

Correct. I can see 1 there. But nothing on the pic ? How to display it there ? – AYK Dec 19 '12 at 9:32

@AYK: Click on the count, then choose a hat to wear. You need to don the hat to show it! – Martijn Pieters Dec 19 '12 at 9:33

Go to your profile and see below profile views (for other's profile) or helpful flags (for your own profile).

Another option:

Go to Winter Bash and login there. You can see there active whichever is earned by you.
