Winter Bash 2014 was fun, especially the "secret hat" concept.
However, by the time I found out about it, all the secret hats were not 'secret' anymore. I don't mean that revealing secret hats is a bad idea, but it was a bit annoying. I have the following questions (which I hope would relevant in next year's event)
Suppose I get a secret hat and I have a pretty good guess about how I got it. Is there anywhere I can state this to the SE officials to get a "Eureka!" hat, without revealing it publicly, so that others can also try guessing the secret?
I have quite a few ideas for the secret hats for next year. I suppose others have, too. Maybe SE could create some place where you can send such suggestions, and they could use the best ones.
Shouldn't next year have more hats, secret ones especially, to make it more difficult to get all the hats?
Do the hats have anything to do with the badges?
"Winter Bash" wouldn't be that appropriate in places like Australia, maybe something like "Christmas Bash" or "New Year Bash" would have been better. I suppose it's too late to change it, though.
