It all started out in 2011 on the Gaming Stack Exchange under the name of Hat Dash.
Participants of Arqade really liked it, and in 2012, it became a fun event for the whole Stack Exchange network called Winter Bash. There were more and more people participating in it. And everybody loved it.
This year, Stack Exchange have been through really hard times, because they have done many, many mistakes. However, they still found time and effort to organise Winter Bash 2019.
However, it seems people got bored with Winter Bash.
As an aside, I would love to hear suggestions from people that have nothing to do with hats. This was the 8th year we've done the same thing with different triggers and to be honest, I turned them off this year because I've gotten kind of bored with the idea. — animuson ♦
So here are obvious questions:
- Why can't we have Winter Bash 2020?
- If you got bored with the idea, I guess you are also bored with celebrating New Year, Christmas and all the rest of annual events.
- Even if you are bored, can't we just change the main topic of the event? Change hats to vehicles for example, like it was suggested by Rob in Winter Bash 2019 suggestions.
Personally I really look forward to having Winter Bash 2020.
