The Steelers Fan hat

If you could make a hat of this guy, Steely McBeam (who we refer to as Steely Dan -- bonus points if that were the name), a certain set of people would be eternally grateful.

Also, word is there's people who would do ANYTHING to get this hat.

  • Anything? Then your best bet would probably be to get hired at SE and sneak it into next year's Winter Bash. – mmyers Dec 17 '15 at 22:20

    I don't think there's a hat for getting 10+ downvotes on a single post... maybe there is... – enderland Dec 17 '15 at 22:27
  • @enderland You can't get my score low enough to prevent me from posting. I'm starting to think that Meta needs a request for an upvote button to be implemented, though. – user25296 Dec 17 '15 at 22:29

    @Axelrod just don't post things people disagree with overwhelmingly. – enderland Dec 17 '15 at 22:31
  • What would one have to do to get this hat? – HDE 226868 Dec 17 '15 at 22:33
  • @enderland It was a joke, but for the record two of my three posts have been declared dupes of extremely well received questions. – user25296 Dec 17 '15 at 22:37

    Well, another +3 and you just might get a hat for it – Mathieu Guindon Dec 17 '15 at 22:39

    @Mat'sMug I'm wearing the hat you win. This is for a friend. – user25296 Dec 17 '15 at 22:47
  • @nicael How about now? :D – user25296 Dec 17 '15 at 23:54

Look, I upvoted this on principle, but... no.

We already had Sparkles adorning a football helmet last year for the Handegg hat, and that's about as close as you're going to get.

It's a little too specific, and possibly even divisive. And after last year and this year, it seems another hat that people "would do ANYTHING" for might be the last thing we need.

There's no obvious trigger, either, although that's something that could be worked on.

  • In my defense, your hat triggers are the issue, not the hats themselves. Were you to require constructive things -- or even just things for fun, like posting in a certain thread -- you'd have a much better response. – user25296 Dec 17 '15 at 22:49
  • They mostly are supposed to be. There's definitely room for improvement. Suggestions would be welcome! – Pops Dec 17 '15 at 23:07
  • @Axelrod: No incentive has been devised that can not also be abused. – Jon Ericson Dec 17 '15 at 23:10
  • @Pops A frenemy of mine has been dismayed that no hat for making a tag wiki has been made. Instead of editting an old question or removing comments that don't have flags, you could consider answering an old question or removing comments that do have flags. – user25296 Dec 17 '15 at 23:14
  • @JonEricson That's human nature. Rather than encouraging and discouraging the bad, however, it's generally more efficient to just encourage the good. – user25296 Dec 17 '15 at 23:15
