Description of Hello World

make your very first post during Winter Bash, scoring 1 or more

This was my first post during winter bash. +1 and an accept. Why didn't I get it?

(You make a fair point - "first" is an ambiguous modifier here.) – Jaydles Dec 16 '13 at 18:30
@Jaydles indeed, something like "make your very first post on the site during Winter Bash, scoring 1 or more" will prevent such confusions. – Shadow Wizard Dec 16 '13 at 18:37

While that was your first post during Winter Bash, it was not your very first post. To get Hello World, you have to post something (that gets upvoted!) on a site you've never posted on before.

Oh yeah. I didn't understand that description. THANKS!!!!! – Walker Dec 16 '13 at 18:25
I'm assuming this is the same for this year's Kofia hat? – Doorknob Dec 16 '14 at 2:32
@Doorknob冰 I believe so. – hairboat Dec 16 '14 at 2:33
Does that mean that we aren't eligible for Kofia on most of our sites, then? :/ – starsplusplus Dec 21 '14 at 20:13

That was not your very first post ever on Stack Overflow. You had a lot of posts before Winterbash.
