The Stack Overflow developers have been working on a winter (for the northern hemisphere) bash that probably will include hats overlays for avatars and some non-competition for fake internet points and badges this month. They have placed a teaser page up at the eventual home of this year's festivities:

This is announced as site opt-out optional (users can always opt out of hats on the site). We need community consensus to form before the 10th of December if we are to act and opt out entirely as a site.

Please answer if you feel the site should or should not opt out entirely.

  • By the way, are fake internet points basically fake reputation points? Because if they are (even if not in name, only theory) it should be clearly stated that these are not real points. – Brick Dec 4 '15 at 11:35
  • Can we change the capitalization to Winter BASh? – Arc676 Dec 4 '15 at 12:17
  • @Brick The term "fake internet points" was meant to refer to the post that I have now linked to directly. I have no idea if there are badges this year, but in the past, the hats all go away at the end of the "bash", but reputation earned or lost doesn't. – bmike Dec 4 '15 at 14:01
  • Alright. Thanks @bmike :) – Brick Dec 4 '15 at 14:18
  • ahh… that means again for a month I get to use my 'facing the right way to wear a hat' avatar picture :-) – Tetsujin Dec 11 '15 at 13:58

YES, absolutely! Winter Bash for the win!
