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

hats

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

But to get this awesome hat promotion we have to opt in. That means acting on this meta post, whether that's voting it up, answering in the affirmative, positive comments and/or just directing positive energy this direction.

I (and the other mods I hope) think this is a great opportunity for us to grow and get even more awesome content.

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).

Again, please let us know what you think as this is your site not ours.

But of course! Hats are the best! (But I'm 1000000% biased.) –  Aarthi Nov 13 '12 at 23:47
    
On all the other sites I upvoted instantly, but on this one I am … skeptical. (pun absolutely not intended) –  Baarn Nov 15 '12 at 16:38

As long as there is a tin-foil hat, of course.

Free your mind

I'm not convinced that I, personally, want a hat avatar.

But if "bah humbug" people like me can easily opt out, then I have no objections, so I vote yes.

Yes, opting out should be very simple! And, you'll neither see hats nor be seen sporting one. –  Aarthi Nov 14 '12 at 16:47
    
I propose a Grinch hat for you, Mr. Humbug! –  jozzas Dec 17 '12 at 6:39
