The description for the ‘Running Ragged’ hat is

earn 150 reputation points on three different sites (not including Stack Overflow) within 15 days.

On December 19th (the first day of Winter Bash), I gained 150 or more reputation on Meta Stack Exchange, Puzzling and English Language Learners. Yet I’m still waiting for my hat.

Does anybody know if there is any scheduled delay caused by the shipping company? Because I’d like to wear one of them on Christmas Eve.

Did I miss some additional rule about this hat, or is this a bug? I joined these sites a while ago, so no association bonus was involved. I suppose Meta Stack Exchange does count for this hat, as it does for the similarly worded Polymath, and in any case, I now earned 150 reputation on Chess as well.

  • Maybe Meta.SE doesn't count? It's a meta, not a "real site".

  • Even then, I earned 150 reputation on Chess (on the 19th and the 20th combined).

    Hmm. Worth mentioning that (and any other sites) in your Q. But I'm stumped. Also, I'm neutral on hats, so feel free to borrow any of the ones I accidentally earned....

Yep, there was a bug that prevented this hat from being awarded. Fixed in the next build.
