Once again the overlords in the mother ship are giving us a contest to have fun during the holidays
As another year draws to a close, we wanted to do something fun and lighthearted with our communities, as a way of celebrating the many amazing people who make the sites awesome. So, we’re announcing Winter Bash 2014!
Most of you probably remember previous years’ events, but I’ll recap anyway, for the newbies among us. Winter Bash is an annual event that can run on any Stack Exchange site that chooses to participate. Users earn “hats” for their gravatars by completing certain tasks (analogous to badges). Certain actions trigger the user receiving a hat, which their gravatar can “wear”. We track everyone’s progress earning hats in a leaderboard that looks something like this:
This year the event will run from December 15 to January 4. Individual users who don’t want to participate, don’t want to see hats, and/or are generally anti-hat will have an “I hate hats” option available. And just like last time, at the end of the event, all hats will go back into storage.
Please feel free to add your own answers, but do take the time to vote up the YES or NO answers I gave.
