Last year, it seemed to me that hats were ordered (in the leaderboard) by the effort it took to get them (the rarity of the hat).

I managed to guess the order last year.

How are hats displayed in the leaderboard this year? If it is still by difficulty, can someone list the order below?

E.g.: The R-E-S-P-E-C-T is always before The Stallman but The Stallman is always before the 3 hats.

This is a first draft of my guesses.

I haven't placed:

  • "First!"
    enter image description here
  • enter image description here
  • Ho Ho Ho
    enter image description here
  • Lonesome Cowboy
    enter image description here
  • enter image description here
  • enter image description here

Because I don't see a pattern yet.

Also please note that some of the highest hats are placed there randomly but on top because I haven't seen a hat that comes before them yet.

  • Different size because I took some from the spritesheet and some from the leaderboard directly. If someone who be kind enough to find the other spritesheet I could change that. – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Dec 16 '13 at 16:24

    Higher resolution hats – Madara Uchiha Dec 16 '13 at 17:31

    @MadaraUchiha Thats where I got them. But take a look at the bigger ones there not on the sprite sheet and this is why I suspect a second sprite sheet. – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Dec 16 '13 at 17:33
  • @MadaraUchiha Actually they are secret hats so I suppose I won,t find them on any sheet. – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Dec 16 '13 at 17:34

    Just saw an IG-88 secret hat. stackoverflow.com/users/73681/cobbal – Matt Davis Dec 17 '13 at 0:22
  • It is unclear how the With Great Power hat is ordered. On the overall leaderboard, it is at least after the Past Judgment hat. But on the SO leaderboard, it is before the Florence Nightengale hat. Something's amiss here... I assume that we'll go by the overall leaderboard, so I'll put the hat back in its proper place until we can (perhaps) get clarification. – Matt Davis Dec 17 '13 at 5:13
  • @MattDavis On the site leaderboards, hats are ordered by how rare they are on the particular site; on the network-wide leaderboard, it's by how rare they are network-wide. – balpha Dec 17 '13 at 16:28

  • Th doge hat isn't a hat, last year they had arbitrary meme photos in the sprites image too – Manishearth Dec 17 '13 at 19:59
  • @Mr.PeanutMonopolyMcManish Maybe it's a secret, secret hat :P – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Dec 17 '13 at 20:02
  • I have "old hat" granted for being a member in the first month of SO. I have no idea if / where that might rank. :-( – scunliffe Dec 18 '13 at 11:28
  • @scunliffe Its on the list :) ! – ʞunɥdɐpɐɥd Dec 18 '13 at 13:58
