The description of Got a tablet for Christmas hat is given when you post from the Stack Exchange app on 25th December 2014.

My question is:

  • The hat name has Tablet, so do we have to use the Stack Exchange app on tablets to get this hat ? Or any Android / iOS device will work ?
  • What all does post cover here ? Will either posting an answer or posting a question work ?
  1. No you don't need a tablet. You simply need to use either the Android or iOS app to post.

  2. The term post is a general term that encompasses both questions and answers. So you would need to ask or answer a question on that day. Commenting does not count.

Also don't forget that the post will need to have a score higher than zero.

  • inb4 Does it have to be a new Android or iOS device? – Martijn Pieters Dec 19 '14 at 19:31

  • @animuson Where would a normal user have found this rule on what a "post" is defined as without searching Meta for the answer? If a user isn't a Meta regular, it could be perceived that a comment would count as a "post". – Chrismas007 Dec 29 '14 at 17:50

The hat description doesn't say that you have to use a tablet. It just says that you have to post from one of the apps, so any device will work.

"post" here means: post a question or an answer.
