I got this hat on Stack Overflow and put it on in my profile. Then, I disabled hats on my Stackoverflow account, but that hat is still showing on Meta.

It is also not in my list of hats.

  • @AmalMurali No!! already two down-voters claim it :) Commented Dec 18, 2013 at 5:05
  • Hit "I hate hats" on MSO and it should go away.

  • That's some pretty bad compression artifacts in that image (just saying)

  • @AmericanLuke because it's a JPG screenshot. Bad idea, I learned very early to save screenshot only as PNG. The JPG is good for pictures, not much more. Commented Dec 18, 2013 at 16:00
  • @AbbyT.Miller no global "I hate hats"? If one is member in 112 sites, he'll have to click it on each and every one of them? Commented Dec 18, 2013 at 16:02
  • @ShadowWizard No, just on one of the sites that are default-on, e.g. right here. It's the reverse case of meta.stackexchange.com/a/212133/115866.

  • @AbbyT.Miller but using a hat which I do not have.. I think is not a good design Commented Dec 19, 2013 at 19:51
  • Winter Bash thinks you own it because you earned it on Stack Overflow, even though you disabled hats on Stack Overflow. You should be able to wear different hats anyway. Just enjoy your extra hat for the next few weeks until they go away :)
