I had an interesting problem with hats loading oddly this afternoon:

many hats

When I changed the hats on a separate tab, the hats loaded in, but never left, which was awkward for all of us.

I was running Safari 9.0.2 (11601.3.9) on Mac OS X El Capitan on this question with no add ons when the bug occurred.

  • You don't happen to remember what page this happened on?

  • @balpha I think it was this one, but I'm not entirely sure. Commented Dec 16, 2015 at 11:06
  • Excellent, that confirms my theory. Thanks.

There was an issue in the Winter Bash code that could cause old hats to not be removed when they're being replaced with new ones if the page contains elements that look like they may contain avatars but actually don't. This is fixed now.
