Under a week to go, time for this year's room.
some house keeping:
"WB" means Winter Bash
remember the time zones! (example you will get the solstice hat on Dec 20th 1000 UTC some 14 hours ahead of when the solstice starts.)
For hats with "post" in the trigger that means it has to be positively scored (zero does not cut it).
placeholder
don't do anything stupid to get, or to try to get a hat.
have fun, there is lots of time. No need to rush you have till Jan 5th.
It has always been important to know your history... in more ways than one.
@Stephie will you be going for all of them this year?
 
10:46 PM
@David no. That’d need more planning than I am willing to invest.
I’ll enjoy what I can get, maybe do something extra like cleaning up old comments, but that’s about it.
 
@Stephie same. :( I still have this "problem" with the winter bash. I really like it. Yet I do not have the time I use to. I have not done any prep yet this year.
I mean I'd like to go for first again, but I doubt that will happen.
never know, SE has dumbed down the triggers, so maybe still possible.
hi @Tinkeringbell (PS the meta diamond looks good on your patriot.)
maybe you could help keep the hat list clean of too many comments.
 
Hey David! Thanks ;) Just popping in to see what this was about, I must've missed the chatroom last year ;)
And of course I'll be cleaning up comments. That's what IPS mods are famous for :P
 
you could start here most of those should never of stayed during the bash.
 
yes I sure can. it has never been a problem in past years, the room would just fade away with the bash. However I see there are some more then zealous bashers keeping this room alive.
Till next year.
Long live the Winter Bash.
We're back. :)
 
Still can't believe the WB is only 6 days and 1 hour away! that came quickly. I still remember the excitement of finding the new secret hat (Mother of Dragons) and figuring out its trigger like it was yesterday.
@X-27 some never left...
 
10:59 PM
 
@David Do me a favour? Just put flags on what you think can go ;) It's midnight, and I'm going to put a final touch on a IPS meta answer and then I'm going to sleep ;)
 
@Tinkeringbell ok can do. But that will be a LOT of flags. did not want to spam flags in the past, but now that there are mods... :)
 
Aha, so it's that time of year again constructive people go around wearing mask. :)
 
11:21 PM
@David You can always flag the post too, say that there's a lot to clean up :P
 
@Tinkeringbell nah, I always have had problem with flagging my on posts.
I know there are reasons to do so. but you loose either way. Either I get a flagged post, or a rejected flag.
 
11:50 PM
@David I went guns blazing a few years back, got pretty high up there (for a small-siter). Last year I made (and kept) a resolution not to chase any and still ended up on the top handful for my site... so I'm pretty content to just sit back and trust the gods will shower me with hats =)
 
This is going to be interesting...

Welcome, @Catija! :) (LTNS)
 
Thanks :D
It's been a busy few months.
 
Oh wait no I saw you on one of my questions on MSE. The one about me getting gold badges for duplicate questions.
 
Ah, yeah. :)
