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 ;) – Bhuvan Rikka 웃 Dec 19 '12 at 11:08
  • @NullPointer one the main leaderboard page (at least for now), or on any site-specific leader board… – F'x Dec 19 '12 at 11:08

    Nice catch. It seems that the Community is also just an user :-) – rekire Dec 19 '12 at 11:17

    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)? – Spontifixus Dec 19 '12 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 Dec 19 '12 at 11:33
  • @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... – Spontifixus Dec 19 '12 at 11:39

    All awesome AI is female. Just look at Shodan. – J. Steen Dec 19 '12 at 11:43

    Don't “not constructive”-vote me! Nothing is more constructive than ensuring the wearing of hats by omnipresent artificial intelligences! – F'x Dec 19 '12 at 11:48

    @Spontifixus: Whenever you flag a post as spam, community downvotes it for you. – Martijn Pieters Dec 19 '12 at 12:16
  • @MartijnPieters I forgot about that. Thanks for clarification! – Spontifixus Dec 19 '12 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. – F'x Dec 19 '12 at 14:02
  • @rekire specifically Community is -1 on every SE site, but we all knew that. Welcome to Meta, may you never leave. aaaahhmeehhnnnn – jcolebrand Dec 19 '12 at 16:06

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? ;) – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Dec 19 '12 at 14:02

    Roll this out to every site!! :D – jcolebrand Dec 19 '12 at 16:04
  • Only on MSO? Or will this work on other sites as well? – jrg Dec 19 '12 at 16:04

    @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. – balpha Dec 19 '12 at 16:09
  • She? Community's a girl? – Rocket Hazmat Dec 19 '12 at 16:11
  • @RocketHazmat I'm just going with the OP there. – balpha Dec 19 '12 at 16:16

    @RocketHazmat Community hasn't had a gender for a long time. Personally, I like her being a girl. :D – Aarthi Dec 19 '12 at 16:23
