I am trying to find the number of people participating in WB each year. "Participate in WB" means that acquiring at least one hat of that year's WB. Is there any way I can achieve that?
The number of participants in Winter Bash each year has not been part of the statistics released after every WB. The closest data to what you're looking for is the "distinct users" count.
The "distinct users" number sums the number of users earning each hat available and counts a user only once, even if they earned the hat on multiple sites.
|Winter Bash||Hats awarded||Distinct users|
