Why aren't the Winter bash hats available in the meta site? Is it a bug or a feature?

  • Well we didn't opt in to the whole thing, so ... – Joseph Wright Dec 20 '13 at 6:06
  • Those winter bash hats are a very strange thing... – cgnieder Dec 20 '13 at 15:02

    Some people (including me) like strange things... – kiss my armpit Dec 20 '13 at 15:09
  • @StiffJokes Then maybe it's part of the strangeness that the hats aren't available on meta :) – cgnieder Dec 20 '13 at 15:45
  • I am inclined to call it as either a bug or an inconsistent feature. – kiss my armpit Dec 20 '13 at 15:56

    many of the stackexchange sites seem to think tex.sx is an inconsistent feature. – barbara beeton Dec 20 '13 at 16:05
  • Well, we cannot see the obtained hats. But I doubt if at least one of them is not available in a meta site. :-) – Przemysław Scherwentke Dec 26 '13 at 5:52
  • @barbarabeeton Can you give an example of that attitude? – marczellm Dec 26 '13 at 23:18

    @marczellm -- i haven't got time to dig for citations now, but from the "behavior" of newbies on tex.sx who come from other established sites, it is clear that our "community practices" are rather uncommon. for one thing, politeness and manners are the norm here; the practice regarding downvotes is one measurable example of that. – barbara beeton Dec 27 '13 at 13:14
  • @marczellm: Another example of odd things is a special typographical convention to type with lowercase. No offense. :-) – kiss my armpit Dec 27 '13 at 13:21

It is , as per-site metas (or child metas) don't actually have an exclusive profile. :( The only exclusion is Meta.SO, since it covers network-wide meta-related content, and have individual user profiles separate from StackOverflow.

As reference, see Hat not showing on site meta.
