They were on Meta Stack Overflow previous year, but since the split occurred, I would expect them to appear here, on Meta Stack Exchange, this year. Will it happen (or any discussion on it)? I want hatz!
Yes!!! of course I want hat.
Please give us hats on MSE, so that we can wear our hats while chatting in the Tavern and other MSE chatrooms.
Hats are fun, please give us hats.
(bluefeet in a red hat^)
I can neither condemn nor deny the potential existence of hats.
A moderator on SO asked the community of SO if we wanted hats again this year here.
According to the overwhelming support of the community wanting hats again this year, it is safe to say, in my opinion, that there will be hats again. I'd think the hats will be network wide, including MSE.
Please be warned that Winterbash has been accused of causing finger pain, insomnia, hallucinations, and anti-social behaviors. Please consult with your doctor before participating. If you feel rage, followed by extreme emotions of bliss, please seek help right away. 9 out of 10 Winterbash participants say that their life or work has been set back 6-8 months after participating for the full length of the Winterbash. Participating in Winterbash is at your own risk and under no circumstances will you find every secret hat.
I realise this is wrong and goes against everything that MSE stands for … but, speaking entirely selfishly, I'd like the same hat acquisitions to take effect on SO, MSO and MSE. Since the split, frankly, I still see MSO as basically the same as MSE (yeah, yeah, I know) and my "workflow" (such as it is) follows suit. Thus it would be jarring to find myself having different hats on MSE than on [M]SO.
I basically just had to say it. I feel better now.
