We're having a little party here to celebrate the end of 2016. It's called Winter Bash and you can find more details here.

  • Many of the hats I have gained are not listed on that page. To be honest, I'm just left scratching my head saying "what the?" Why not explain the hat wherever the site reports I have a hat: "You got the X hat for XYZ"? By the way, I know it's Winter bash and all, but for those of us in 40 degree heat... oh, ahem, that's 104 on your continent... yeah, you get my (snowless) drift... – youcantryreachingme Jan 2 '17 at 7:50
  • @youcantryreachingme those are secret hats, and you will see them once you have earned them. Those are little puzzles to keep us engaged. – Glorfindel Jan 2 '17 at 8:14
