So it seems the community's stand on this is pretty clear. Internally, we were a bit more divided – here are some quotes from our chat room:
- "there's no technical reason to constrain it, but I don't feel you should be able to rotate all the way"
- "They're not really hats anymore, then, are they? More like just random avatar decorating sticker thingamabobbers."
- "I do not care about this decision, even a little bit. Whatever you all want is fine."
- "MULLET BEARDS!"
- "I'd say go for it."
– and that last quote is from Jon, who's the hat master this year, and thus what the heck: Rotate all you want!
