I've seen the other question about a list of secret hats, but I don't want to spoil the fun. I still want fancy sekrit hats, though!

What hints do you have for earning some of these secret hats? One hat per answer, please, and duplicate answers are okay if you have more hints to add.

  • want picture of the hat / hat name or nothing? – BlueSoul Dec 15 '14 at 13:30
  • @SPArchaeoligist A picture if you want, but it doesn't really matter (I'm on mobile, so I can't add pictures). – Doorknob Dec 15 '14 at 13:34

    Isn't it an exact duplicate ? The other question has all the hints you want. – Optimizer Dec 15 '14 at 20:18
  • @optimizer The other one just says exactly how to get it. – Tim Dec 27 '14 at 19:15


You have to blend in to the site to earn this.

Perhaps you could change something about yourself.

What represents you on a Stack Exchange site?

It's your profile.

How can you make your profile blend in?

To blend in, your profile must change. And how do you do that?

    @Bart or for NAA / spam flags for answers. – PeterJ Dec 16 '14 at 10:58


What do you do on Stack Exchange when you find something fascinating?

It's one of the first privileges you unlock.

Okay, now accept (hint, hint) the fact that you'll have to earn this hat with posts that are marked as such.

The post must be considered fascinating by others, as well.

Hence, the hat has something to do with upvoted accepted answers.

Well, do you or don't you like it?

It's not side-to-side.

You're not really looking for an answer...

Maybe you'd think more of it if you contributed a little...

Change your mind?

The names are similar, are they?

Both vulcanian, they are almost the same

Eureka (probably can't be obtained anymore)

Seems you discovered something, haven't you?

And you were the first one, too.

You got your brevet registered, no one can claim he discovered it before.

So now you just have to wait for the print to give you glory.
