The deadline for the winterbash is looming on Dec. 1 and there haven't been any announcements here yet, so here goes.

Hats have are new and redesigned for this year's winterbash! It will last from Dec. 16, 2013 to Jan. 3, 2014 if we decide to opt in. If you weren't around last year for the winterbash, here's how it works.

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

If anyone hates hats and festivity, there will be a I hate hats button they can click on and they will all disappear.

Winterbash is on an opt-in basis. If the we want to join, we need to let the mods know so they can let the community team know. What do you think of it?
