Plus 44's description says, in order to earn it, you have to

Answer a question of score four or greater with an answer of score four or greater.

As far as I can tell, this answer should qualify me for this hat on Code Golf.SE (the question was posted ~3 hours after Winter Bash started). However, I currently don't have the hat.

Catija hypothesised that the hat can only be awarded if the answer is the first one (whether to reach 4 upvotes, or first to post, is unknown), which would fit with the fact that another user has this hat, as they had the first answer.

Is this a hidden part of the trigger, or is this a bug, and all answers should receive the hat?

    It's unclear which description was intended, but in the code comment the description of the hat is: "Answer an unanswered +4 question with a +4 answer" and being the first answer is a requirement in the query.

  • @animuson So are you guys planning to fix the description or the query?

    For public hats, the query should follow the description.

The criteria for awarding does indeed require that your answer is the first answer for the question (including other answers that were deleted).

The hat description has been updated to:

Answer a previously unanswered question of score four or greater with an answer of score four or greater.

Answer a previously unanswered question of score four or greater with an answer of score four or greater.
