So, with WinterBash upon us all, there's one very important question that everyone is asking:

How do I get more hats?!

Can we use the Meta site to test our and try to get more hats (provided we delete the questions after)?

  • I don't think meta counts for hats anymore (except ones that mention it in their description). – Seth Dec 14 '15 at 23:05
  • @Seth According to the hat room, they do count. – Kaz Wolfe Dec 14 '15 at 23:06

    I just checked with an SE employee. Only Meta Stack Exchange counts. – Seth Dec 14 '15 at 23:07
  • @Seth Aww. Lame! – Kaz Wolfe Dec 14 '15 at 23:07

    I also think farming for hats is a bit against the spirit of the hats :) – Marco Ceppi Dec 15 '15 at 17:53

As Marco says, this is a bit against the spirit of the hats. Actually I'd go as far as to say it's against the rules. Hats are like badges, they're (mostly) supposed to encourage good behaviors, not trigger a mad dash to "catch 'em all" in the fastest way possible and the heck with the consequences to the health of the site.

And beside all that... as Seth pointed out, "farming" on meta won't even work for most hats.
