If I asked 5 questions and answered them all, and then accepted them, would I have earned the Rep Hunter hat?

    It is a bit early to ask about hats for winterbash 2019 ... – rene Jan 2 '19 at 14:34

    @rene you have secret information that it will be used in WB 2019 again? o_O – Glorfindel Jan 2 '19 at 14:37

    I can't see why this was flagged as off-topic. Yes, the Winter Bash is over, but can't we ask about triggers which haven't been revealed yet? – hat Jan 2 '19 at 15:21

    @hat What do you mean "not revealed yet"? This was no secret hat. – SouravGhosh Jan 3 '19 at 5:25

    @SouravGhosh yeah, you're right. I dunno where my brain went. (I haven't found it yet, maybe it will come to light sometime. That's no loss, though, I hardly ever use it :} ) – hat Jan 3 '19 at 9:28

No, this would not have worked.

Source: I've tested it a couple of days ago.

Sometimes your own things don't count

In some cases, there may be an unmentioned requirement for certain things to be outside your control, lest it be too easy to get a hat. In particular this is often the case for hats involving accepted answers where self-answers are excluded.
