Last year I was curious about some hat stats (How many hats did each site get?). Unfortunately, this data wasn't collectable at the time I asked. Please consider collecting the data this year. You could have an interesting blog post about the data analysis. Things like:
- Out of all the people who earned hats on the site, what percentage of users on Android.SE earned the different mobile app hats (and similarly for the Apple.SE)
- What is the ratio of "Crabby" people to "Red Shirt" (and "I Voted Today")?
- What was the long term effect of the Resolution hat? (How many comments were deleted? Did this cause any questions to become eligible for roomba deletion having fallen below the "keep because enough comments"?)
- What rooms had the most Sumo Judge hat recipients?
You know, that sort of thing. There's a lot of data analysis possible to pull out of the hats and it would be really nice to either save and distribute this data or do it yourself (it could be fun).
