The description of the Timey Wimey hat reads:

edit 5 questions that were posted more than a year earlier

I believe I have fulfilled this criterium on Stack Overflow:

  1. how to calibrate the orientation sensor in android?
  2. MySQL how to chain a single query across multiple tables to retrieve data?
  3. PHP hiding multiple phone numbers
  4. Validate email address textbox using JavaScript
  5. Extjs checkColumn

All of these questions date from September 2014 or earlier.

These edits were done yesterday or 2 days ago, so I think the hat-awarding script has run since these edits were made. They were also all done after WinterBash started.

I could think of three reasons why the Timey Wimey hat has not been awarded:

  • One question has been asked by a now deleted user.
  • Some of these edits were done from the Review queue, as a "Reject & Edit".
  • One of the questions has a negative score (-1).

So - is it any of the above reasons? Or is there another reason that the hat was not awarded?

    Two possible issues: rollback might not count, and minor edit of less than 6 characters. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask V2 Dec 16 '15 at 20:28

Rollback, as you have here does not count as an edit for the purpose of this hat. Confirmed by balpha, and this is the intended behaviour.

  • That, or the fact that apparently one edit was less than 6 characters, as you mention in your comment on the question. I suggest you edit that into the answer. Either way, +1. – S.L. Barth Dec 16 '15 at 20:33

    This is correct, rollbacks don't count, it has to be an actual edit. The four other edits are fine @S.L.Barth, so you just need one more. – balpha Dec 16 '15 at 20:37

    @balpha so minor edits are counted, too? – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask V2 Dec 16 '15 at 21:42
