I recently posted this answer on Stack Overflow and to my knowledge it meets the criteria for Extra Toppings:
- Has > +3 score
- Competing with already accepted answer
- Answer & Question were after Winterbash started
Could it be that I answered a day after the competing answer was accepted or that I've hit the rep cap? I was thinking maybe the hat check hadn't run but someone has already received the Glasses With A Number On Top while meeting the criteria after me. Are there some hidden criteria?
This has got to be a bug with Stack Overflow, because this post from Workplace.SE triggered the hat, and the competing answer was posted a year after the original one. This post from Graphic Design.SE also triggered the hat and the poster got the hat within 30 minutes of the post (the linked post was originally unaccepted). Martijn Pieters tried to get the hat on Stack Overflow but didn't get it and was eventually disqualified due to it being accepted.
