    @random Stop dissing the hats. – Aza Dec 16 '13 at 2:17
  • @random Who's "Johnny-Only-has-one-hat"? I thought I might have earned this hat from having 3 other hats, but there are others who have 3+ hats not including this one. – The Guy with The Hat Dec 16 '13 at 2:20

    Luckily, this hat stack perfectly on my usual one, making it a Johnny Four-Hats for me :) – Geobits Dec 17 '13 at 14:22

The Johnny Three-hats hat is earned by (spoiler below)

earning three different hats on one site, within one day. Hats earned on different sites, on previous days or before the Winterbash started do not count.

  • So there is no way to tell how I earned a secret hat, except for guessing based on the name and was happening right before I earned the hat? – The Guy with The Hat Dec 16 '13 at 13:33

    @MichaelHampton Why would you decompile source code ? – Denys Séguret Dec 16 '13 at 13:33

    @MichaelHampton shhh.... the use of decompiled source code is a secret ... (and so the tools to decompile it !) – vals Dec 16 '13 at 21:22
  • @Mike how do i earn the chuck yeager then? – user2705620 Dec 17 '13 at 6:20
  • @AsshO.Le You gotta be quick... – Hugo Dec 17 '13 at 11:16
  • @Hugo i really do not know what kind of quick, i tried from being first to like to being first to comment. hmm first to answer i guess? – user2705620 Dec 17 '13 at 11:20
  • @AsshO.Le, no, I tried being the first to answer... doesn't work. A co worker of mine just got it, the only peculiarity of his post was that his answer got more upvotes that the accepted answer (all question activity started after Winter Bash 2013). – CaptJak Dec 17 '13 at 17:08
  • It's not only that. I got the Johnny at the same time as my third post-start hat on the two sites where I have it, but I don't have it on some other sites where I've earned three hats. – Gilles Dec 18 '13 at 12:24
  • Sadface :( still don't have Johnny, even though I've currently got 9 hats, 7 on SO after the start of winterbash. – Jeremy Smyth Dec 19 '13 at 14:09
  • I think you have to earn 3 hats in one day to get the Johnny three-hats hat – Dirty-flow Dec 19 '13 at 16:19
  • Indeed. Have it now. – Jeremy Smyth Dec 19 '13 at 19:38

    @Bohemian If you look at the revision history, you will see that I was the person that added the spoiler. – The Guy with The Hat Dec 20 '13 at 20:36
