Last year around Christmas time arQAde had a little promotion in which they awarded hats for gravatars for completing basic tasks around the site.

Here's a link to the promo from last year (and a blog post).

enter image description here

This year, SE is planning to run it across all the sites - but wait!

For this promo to kickoff, each site community has to opt in. And there's where this meta post comes in - vote up the answer(yay/nay), or drop a comment if you want Super User to be part of this promo.

Note that this promotion is optional for the 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.

If the community Individual users will be able to opt out as well (they will be provided with an "I hate Hats" link to opt out once the promo starts).

    …wait. How does this work? If we want hats, do we upvote the yes answer and downvote the no answer? Why does the no answer have a negative amount of votes? If you're against hats, do you downvote the no answer instead of upvoting it? *is very confused* Nov 15, 2012 at 17:42

    @BlacklightShining I think people are so excited about their hats they want to eliminate any possibility that they won't get them.

    @BlacklightShining Usually when voting like this, we'll just count the upvotes on the answers.
