I was browsing the review queues, when all of a sudden I see this -

enter image description here

So the guy at the yellow shirt and the froggy thing (sorry, they went away too fast for me to catch their names), are obviously wearing a hat that is not there at the next frame. A hat that is no more. Gone with the wind. Poof. One might say that the hat is in superposition of being a hat and no hat at the same time. Schrödingers' hat.

Could this be a fearful bug or are hats trying to fool with our minds? Am I being driven crazy by lust for hats? Or perhaps people just like to take their hats off for specific review queues?

  • Hrm, except that some do. I don't see your problem reproduced, now. – Martijn Pieters Dec 18 '13 at 19:17
  • @MartijnPieters: Hm. Waited for someone to pop from the left, he was hatless, clicked to open his profile in a new tab - he's wearing a hat. Switched back to the queues - now it's there as well.. – Leeor Dec 18 '13 at 19:22

    The hats are indeed slow to load for some of these. They do appear after a while. – Martijn Pieters Dec 18 '13 at 19:24

    Thanks @MartijnPieters, don't know why I didn't think of that. Maybe I should loosen my hat a bit to let more blood flow :/ – Leeor Dec 18 '13 at 19:31

I had forgotten that the recent reviewers are updated in realtime, so this wasn't handled. It is now.
