I think that there should be a tag called "hats". It would be very useful for hat-related questions. Right now, there is a secret hats tag, but no hats tag. It would be helpful for questions about hats and maybe proposals for new hats.

I don't have 500 rep so I can't create this tag, but I think it should be added.

    I think this is covered by the winter-bash tag.

    And hats is actually synonymized to winter-bash - we really don't need separate tags for the two of them given Winter Bash is just a period of earning hats.

  • @PolyGeo But what about questions about hats that are not in the winter bash?

Any talk of "Hats" on Meta is almost universally going to be about Winter Bash, so both and are already synonyms of .

See https://meta.stackexchange.com/tags/winter-bash/synonyms

Any physical items that Stack Exchange produces and sends out to users is known as swag, so the tag should be sufficient to cover any questions about real-life Stack Exchange hats (such as the strange diamond logo cap given to moderators).

  • You should probably mention that questions about specific hats should be tagged for the specific Winter Bash event.
