Why does Community get hats? And more importantly: why does she not wear them?

Community wearing

Please, show some goddamn holiday spirit! Can we get Community to wear her hats, either randomly or through popular vote?

    The hats earned might not be her favourite ones ;) Commented Dec 19, 2012 at 11:08
  • @NullPointer one the main leaderboard page (at least for now), or on any site-specific leader board…

    Nice catch. It seems that the Community is also just an user :-)

    Two questions: Why do you assume that community is a female user? And secondly - and maybe more important: Why does community downvote (the propeller-hat indicates that)? Commented Dec 19, 2012 at 11:31
  • @Spontifixus I must assume Community is a person, not a thing… and then, why would I assume it is a male user?

  • @F'x good question. For we don't know. I was just curious, because me too thinks of the community user as a female user... ;) Maybe because "Community" in German is a female word... Commented Dec 19, 2012 at 11:39

    All awesome AI is female. Just look at Shodan.

    Don't “not constructive”-vote me! Nothing is more constructive than ensuring the wearing of hats by omnipresent artificial intelligences!

    @Spontifixus: Whenever you flag a post as spam, community downvotes it for you. Commented Dec 19, 2012 at 12:16
  • @MartijnPieters I forgot about that. Thanks for clarification! Commented Dec 19, 2012 at 12:17

    @todofixthis “goddamn” is not vulgar or offensive… the New Oxford American Dictionary merely marks it as “informal”. I have rolled back your edit.

Sure, why not! Well, here on Meta at least.

Also from now on, moderators can choose their community user's hat. If she has any, of course.

community user with hat

    Does it decide on its own what hat to wear? ;) Commented Dec 19, 2012 at 14:02

  • Only on MSO? Or will this work on other sites as well?

    @jrg You will be able to change the hat for askubuntu.com/users/-1/community, which is probably your question :) We may not roll this out today though; in our current alternate datacenter we're a bit more conservative with deploying, since we don't quite have the same resources there.

    @RocketHazmat Community hasn't had a gender for a long time. Personally, I like her being a girl. :D
