Last year around Christmas time we had an awesome promotion in which hats for for gravatars were awarded for completing basic tasks around the site. If you don't remember it, here is a link to the promo from last year (and the year before that).


This year, SE is planning to run it for everyone again because we all love hats, right? right?

This year we would need to opt-out if we don't want any of this haberdashery. For the purposes of a simple count, upvote this question to indicate you would like hats, and downvote this question if you don't want hats at all.

We've had a lot of fun with this promotion in the past, and I'm sure it's going to be fun again this time.

HOWEVER: this promotion is optional for sites, and/or individual users. If the users of this site do not want this in general feel free to voice that opinion. We can opt out of the promotion. Individual users will be able to opt out as well (they will be provided with an "I hate Hats" link to opt out).

    \$\begingroup\$ It is always good to see that the Stack Exchange resources and the efforts of its dev team are directed to the truly important things. Why direct efforts towards for example the broken review audit system, when the devs' time could be better spent implementing hat graphics? \$\endgroup\$
