So, I was reading around the Stack Exchange network and came across this (easily googleable) question: “Oh The Horror” Hat Club

Anyone want to give this a go?

From the page:

41 people join in.

Each person upvotes every answer, other than theirs, to this question.

Once we have 41 answers and votes, I will systematically accept each answer in turn.

41 people get the "Oh the Horror" hat.

Easy.

Don't blame me, I just thought this would be fun to try.

    I don't think it will work on Meta. – Nathan Osman Dec 31 '13 at 1:21
  • @NathanOsman The "Oh the horror" hat is a meta hat.. I personally kinda like the idea, since no one ever upvotes much around here. At least, not up to 40. – Seth Dec 31 '13 at 1:23
  • @NathanOsman It worked on the english meta? – RPiAwesomeness Dec 31 '13 at 1:24
  • @Seth I see your point. It seems very un-friendly around here some times. :D – RPiAwesomeness Dec 31 '13 at 1:24
  • Ah, okay. Never mind then. – Nathan Osman Dec 31 '13 at 1:28
  • @NathanOsman Aren't you going to join in on the fun? – RPiAwesomeness Dec 31 '13 at 21:34
  • I'd like to try, but the thing is, the Guru badge which gets you this hat has only been awarded once. To Oli for this – kiri Jan 1 '14 at 5:36

    @minerz029 Well, they did it in the English Language SE Meta, so why not here? – RPiAwesomeness Jan 1 '14 at 5:38

Teddy said it was a hat,

So I put it on.

It's certainly worth a try, though whether 41 people will answer before Saturday is questionable.
We'll all get the Guru badge anyway!

Wish I'd seen that post sooner, but here are some stats...

As of January 1st, 2014 UTC 6:00...

We have 6 answers (counting mine) and of those...

  • @Guntbert's has been upvoted 9 times

  • @Braiam's has been upvoted 6 times

  • @Eric's has been upvoted 4 times

  • @djeikyb's has been upvoted 2 times

  • @minerz029's has been upvoted 1 times

  • @rpiawesomeness's has been upvoted 0 times

At this rate:

  • Answers = 6/41 -- 6 a day would take 6 days, too long.

    11 a day would take ~3.7 days.

  • Upvotes currently possible from answering participants: 6 plus outside votes (as seen on Gunbert's answer)

Don't forget to check back and upvote new ones!

    Should we be updating this? The timeline is available here if anyone is curious. We got 102 up votes on this question + answers, and 9 answers yesterday :) We might actually pull this off... – kiri Jan 2 '14 at 10:05

Well, I wanted to put something catchy or funny here, but couldn't think of anything. So here I am. Not funny.

We won't get enough people, but might as well try.

I already posted in the other thread, can I post here too?

  • I don't see anything wrong with that.. the more votes you can get us the better! – Seth Jan 3 '14 at 3:54

A group participation hat? That could work...

Let me also throw my hat in the ring...

Well, we didn't make the 40 upvotes per question, not even close, and didn't have 41 participants.

Thanks for everyone's participation, and hopefully we can pull something off next year!

Kudos to @Minerz029 for supplying this comment: Ask Ubuntu version of "Oh The Horror" Hat Club anybody?

Thanks!
