Glare Reducers seem to be gifted to non-active members of the Stack Overflows, despite the fact they have not logged in during the duration of Hat Bash. Example and links below:
This skews the data into making it seem that the Stack Overflows have had more hats than any other sites despite the fact that the majority of these users have not participated in winter bash. Is this the intended purpose of Glare Reducers or should they only be awarded to members who actively participate on the network during Winter Bash? Thanks.
Edit: For more context, over 600,000 free hats have been awarded in this way on English Stack Overflow alone. (Between the other Stack Overflow sites in other languages, an additional 30,000 to 40,000 hats have been awarded.)
