Yes, I have another two upvotes to go on Stack Overflow before hitting the limit.

My receiving this hat early is somewhat akin to my giving my daughter a Christmas present a day or two early. And that is ill-disciplined indeed.

It's a bit harder to implement than if (delta_rep >= 200){, but I know you guys are up to it. You're the best!

  • Hat might be given just for 200 rep, not hitting actual rep cap. The "hit rep cap to get the hat" is just a guess (as this is a secret hat), and might be wrong. Dec 13, 2017 at 11:14
  • @ShadowWizard: Well it was a nice gift anyway.

  • Not a bug. The same criteria apply for the repcap related badges: if you get to 200 in a day you earn it. Dec 13, 2017 at 12:19

You got 200 daily reputation about 20 minutes ago: (10 minutes before asking this question)

reputation history showing getting over 200 daily rep today

So most likely this means the hat is awarded for simply having 200 rep a day, no matter how.
