So, I've found in searches that hats are not saved after Winter Bash. (Noted that one has a feature request to have a "hat archive" - which I think is a good idea just to be able to see what was previously earned).

Do we keep hats from year to year?

But one thing puzzles me. Multiple hats stated that they could be earned after Winter Bash was over. E.G. if a certain rep/vote was required, they could be earned if the post later got the required values. How can that occur when all the hats disappeared today? Or am I misunderstanding something?

    "Multiple hats stated that they could be earned after Winter Bash was over." - where exactly did you see this? – Oded Jan 9 '17 at 23:07
  • @Oded maybe OP means hats that might become badges, e.g. this discussion. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Jan 9 '17 at 23:15
  • @Sha - dunno. OP doesn't mention anything about badges. – Oded Jan 9 '17 at 23:16
  • I think OP has just misunderstood something. Difficult to know where they got that idea from. – Ro-Reinstate Monic-Alsop Jan 10 '17 at 9:36
  • I can't find the wording anymore since all the Winter Bash stuff is gone. It's very possible I misunderstood. Maybe it was only talking about badges that had another time requirement other than being within Winter Bash itself. – Trashman Jan 11 '17 at 21:18

One (unstated) requirement for all hats are that the events/actions that lead to gaining a hat should all occur during the WinterBash event.

So... when WinterBash is over, none of the events/actions that would otherwise lead to a hat would fall under this requirement.

  • My question was pertaining to all actions occurring during Winter Bash - or, I guess all MAIN actions - and it just not being resolved until after. Regardless, I'm pretty sure I just misunderstood and I don't have access to the wording to reread it (or perhaps I would but don't know how to get there now that the obvious link is down). – Trashman Jan 11 '17 at 21:20
  • winterbash2016.stackexchange.com is still up with all the hats and their descriptions. – Oded Jan 11 '17 at 21:29
