I had for some days the fantasy of getting a grinch hat. I know there is a hat when you only do upvotes in a day and believed it could make sense to have the same kind of hats for downvotes only. It would be the grinch hat. The programmer that ruined christmas.

What are the fantasy secret hats you'd wish to get?

Here's a small list I can come up with:

  • Ohohoh: Gave a lot of reputation as a bounty on the 25th of December
  • Rudolf Reindeer: Be the first to answer 5 or more questions
  • The Horseman: Have 5 or more closed questions and 5 or more reopened questions in the same day (keep the balance)
  • 18
    I'd get the Grinch hat right now by voting to close this as Primarily Opinion Based. Right? Dec 22, 2013 at 23:27

    Ba humbug. That said, please don't consider down votes to be a negative thing to the site. They are a necessary part of helping the good content become more visible.

    @MichaelT that's true unless the person downvote the good content and upvote the bad content! Not that I'm saying that someone should try that. Dec 22, 2013 at 23:39

    Any hat that gives me special abilities, like shooting fireballs or flying. Dec 23, 2013 at 2:08
  • @BilltheLizard - did you try with Mario's Winged Cap? You may have to find the red switch though.

  • Note: since nobody posted that obvious one... I had to suffice with a second proposal. I have kept it separated from my first one, but if you prefer I will merge the two post.

  • Any hat awarded should still only be for actions that are good for the site; arguably some of the ones here are not (like ones that encourage very speedy but incomplete answering, or that promote gaming via sockpuppetry). Dec 26, 2013 at 21:57
