I was awarded the "First Responder" hat late yesterday on Community Building.

enter image description here

As you can see the hat was awarded later than "Epiphany" (Jan 6th).

This is because there is a bug (or loophole) in the way the "First Responder" hat is awarded:

  1. The room parent site - in this case for Ye Olde Hat Shoppe was changed yesterday by the room owner to communitybuilding.stackexchange.com as an experiment.

  2. Everybody with a starred message in Ye Olde Hat Shoppe who also had a account on Community Building was then awarded the hat (on Jan 6th).

Note: The parent site has now been reverted to the default (no parent site).

It might be something to fix for Winter Bash 2017.

    It might be something to fix for Winter Bash 2017 That is nice of you. It gives plenty of 6 to 8 weeks time frames to get a fix out... – rene Jan 7 '17 at 21:42
  • Cliché though it is, I'd be tempted to call this a feature, not a bug. Presumably everyone who was awarded the hat did actually have a starred message +/- 12h of New Year, so the conditions for awarding it are fulfilled. I think it's a good idea that you get your hat once the room has a parent site that the hat can be tied to. – ArtOfCode Jan 8 '17 at 1:22
  • @ArtOfCode I can agree with that ... – DavidPostill Jan 8 '17 at 10:47
