  • @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. Commented Dec 16, 2013 at 2:20

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? Commented Dec 16, 2013 at 13:33

    @MichaelHampton Why would you decompile source code ? Commented Dec 16, 2013 at 13:33

    @MichaelHampton shhh.... the use of decompiled source code is a secret ... (and so the tools to decompile it !)

  • @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? Commented Dec 17, 2013 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).

  • 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. Commented Dec 18, 2013 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. Commented Dec 19, 2013 at 14:09
  • I think you have to earn 3 hats in one day to get the Johnny three-hats hat

    @Bohemian If you look at the revision history, you will see that I was the person that added the spoiler. Commented Dec 20, 2013 at 20:36
