I would like to know if the Carl Fredericksen hat is awarded only at end-of-day or if it is awarded when the 'threshold' of >= 5 upvotes is reached.

  • Why the downvote? I'm new here (as you might guess from my LOW rep) and it is really disappointing to get a downvote WITH NO EXPLANATION. – David Tansey Dec 18 '15 at 22:17

I've got that hat at the end of the day, and it does make sense because its criteria are:

at least 5 upvotes from 5 different users in a UTC day with no downvotes

After you've got those 5 upvotes, the UTC day is not necessarily over yet, so you can still get a downvote, which would not qualify you for the hat anymore.

    I was not considering the downvote possibility -- now it makes total sense to me. – David Tansey Dec 16 '15 at 18:43
