Will we be participating in Winterbash this year? If the community wants to opt-out, the mods would need to let the CM team know by December 13th.

    NB that due to overwhelming popularity, Winterbash is not only automatic/opt-out this year, but the email mods got suggested that there's only a need to ask the community if they're not already sure what the answer would be. Given Hatmas was born on Arqade, the modly silence is probably due to knowing that Winterbash is largely wanted here. :) – SevenSidedDie Dec 1 '16 at 18:41

    ^ pretty much. We're going with the assumption that it's wanted :-) – Robotnik Dec 1 '16 at 20:34

    @JAL I was being serious, so thanks for the link. When do I get my hat? – Vemonus Dec 1 '16 at 22:35

    I think, in the spirit of 2016, we should opt-out of Winter Bash this year. – Yuuki Dec 2 '16 at 15:35

    @Yuuki you mean a Winterbaxit? – pinckerman Dec 8 '16 at 4:39
  • @Yuuki Or give everyone a hat on fire for New Years', to celebrate leaving the burning wreckage of 2016. – ASCIIThenANSI Dec 12 '16 at 16:44

I say let's opt-in. Hats are fun.

    Do we get a hat for opting in? – Dragonrage Dec 1 '16 at 21:34

Individuals can opt-out if they hate hats, so there's no reason to opt-out as a community.

I say opt-in nothing would look better than Hatsune Miku wearing a Fedora :D
