The people like eLRuLL, Eran, and Panda are really good at Winter Bash, with 30/30 hats! They deserve a reward! Hats aren't just for fun because getting a hat means that you did something good on the site, and if you get a lot that means you did some pretty spectacular things. Most of these things are contributions to the site(s), with the exception of a few fun ones. So I propose that the very best Winter Bashers get a little boost in reputation for being amazing participates in the community.
Winning places in one community would get you a bonus in that community, and winning the SE Network-Wide Leaderboard would give you your bouns in the community you earned the most amount of hats in (or all communities, but that seems like too much...)
So here we go:
#These numbers are just examples and reputation #amounts could be changed and lowered as needed. 1st = +100 2nd = +75 3rd = +60 4th & 5th = +45 Top 10 = +25 Top 50 = +10 # These last ones could be too Top 100 = +5 # much. Maybe remove them?... ---------------- 20+ Hats = +10 14+ Hats = +6 8+ Hats = +4
Results would not stack up, so for example, 1st place does not mean you get a 2nd place bonus too.
Basically, lots of hats means you are really helpful to the community, so why not reward them with a tiny gift?
What do you think about this?
