I've set myself to go earn the Lifesaver hat:

Lifesaver badge info

I went and posted an answer which was accepted, and here we see that that question did result in a tumbleweed badge for the OP.

Am I misunderstanding the requirement or is there something else wrong? Any ideas?

    Possibilities: caching, answer may need a positive score, caching, query didn’t run (unlikely; the accept has been a few hours ago), …

    You need positive score, though the hat description does not say so

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because as Winter Bash 2016 has long ended, questions about it are now irrelevant. Jun 18, 2019 at 21:13

AAAAAANNNND,
here it is!

[Your answer needs a] positive score, though the hat description does not say so
— @AndrewL

 
So, there you have it your answer needs to get an upvote in addition to being accepted.

 
I've got the Lifesaver hat!

Now, please excuse me while I put it on.

    Every hat involving answers has that implicit requirement.
