Are hats working properly?

The hats are great! I've earning a few today but I spotted Howdy Pardner hasn't been awarded on SO? According to my comment activity I have left 8 today and 5th being over 3 hours ago, the only reason I ask is the other hats I earned today were award pretty quickly.

Well maybe not the only reason I ask ~Constantinopolitan ;)

Awesome idea!

    Are you sure that all those comments have upvotes?

  • @balpha I wasn't aware +1 was part of the spec, it just says 5 comments

    It says "leave 5 comments with a score of 1 or more" in the full description. I'll clarify the short form.

As balpha kindly mentioned in the comments above: it's not just 5 comments, it's 5 nonzero scored comments. Which means you need 5 of your comments to be at >= +1 for it to trigger.

This will be made more clear on the site page. Thanks for helping us make this better!
