Across the Stack Exchange, at the end of December and start of January for the last two years, they've had virtual hats as rewards for various site participation activities.

As a site, we can choose to opt in to this Hat Dash, if we want. There will be a range of overlays enter image description here
that you can add to your icon
enter image description here

If you yourself want to abstain, then that's ok: there will be a button that will allow you to opt out personally from the whole thing.

Should this site as a whole take part?

Update: A (small) majority is in favor so we've opted our site in. The winter bash will start at december 16th.

  • EnergyNumbers, thanks for starting this poll. Are you also going to notify the SE staff that we will be participating if the "yes" wins it from the "no"?.

  • For people who want to know more, here's the 2012 blog announcing the start of the winterbash. And here's another blog about the results. There's also a picture of me with an antlers hat half-way down the second blog :-)
