SE is planning to run another "dash for hats!"-style promotion this year, but this time for all the sites. Here's some example hats from last year:
Now, it's totally opt-in, both on a per-site and per-user basis, so I just want to confirm that there's positive energy in the community behind this before moving too much further ahead.
I think participating in the awesome hat promotion thing would be a lot of fun for the community, and could provide a wider opportunity to engage community members even more deeply and develop even more great content.
But it would help if we opt-in! If you think the community could benefit from participation, just act on this meta post -- vote it up, answer in the affirmative, provide positive comments.
Keep in mind that even if we participate as a community, it would still be optional for individual users -- you'll just have to click an "I hate Hats!" link to opt out :)
Please let us know what you think!
