I am just wondering if it's possible to earn the Wa-Boushi hat on Meta Stack Overflow.

I have this answer, it has 36 upvotes (lol hoping for more), but I am wondering if/when I get 40 upvotes, will I get the hat?

Or is it that you only can earn the Wa-Boushi hat for answers on main sites?

If I go to the Guru badge page on Stack Overflow and go to the profiles of the users that recently earned the badge, they all seem to have the Wa-boushi hat.

If I go to the Guru badge page on Meta Stack Overflow and go to the profiles of the users that recently earned the badge, they do not seem to have the Wa-boushi hat.

So earning the Guru badge on Meta Stack Overflow does not award the Wa-boushi hat. This has just been confirmed by Yaakov Ellis in a comment to this answer.

  • I haven't managed to earn any of the hats for posts on Meta Stack Overflow, so I'm guessing that per-site metas do not count. Much to my great disappointment. :-( Jan 1, 2021 at 9:45
