The Stack Exchange team is organizing an original event, in the spirit of the one organized last year on the Gaming site, called Hat Dash, where users earned "hats" for their gravatars by completing certain tasks (analogous to badges). Certain actions would trigger the user receiving a hat, which their gravatar could then "wear".
This event will run from 19 December 2012 to 4 January 2013. Individual users who don’t want to participate, don’t want to see hats, and/or are generally anti-hat will have an "I hate hats" option available. The only visual change to the site itself will be the presence of the hats and the "I hate hats" button in the footer. Participation on one site does not affect accounts on other SE sites.
The following two answers aim to collect votes for a community poll: Please, indicate whether you think Cross Validated should participate to this event or not (1 vote per user). Responses from the community users are due by November, 28 (sorry for the short delay), and moderators will inform the SE team of our collective decision.
