Winter Bash 2015 is approaching! We signed up for it last year, and it was a really big hit. We all had a lot of fun earning and showing our hats to the rest of the world.

Now after we have graduated we are in a greater field of competitioners and it will be hard to climb on the leaderboard to the 1st place, but we should really try to.

For everybody who is interested take a look at this very cool countdown which counts the minutes left Winterbash 2015.

The event seems to start on 14th of december, at least if my math hadn't lost me.

According to the mod email that was just sent out, no further action is necessary for opting in for Winter Bash this year:

If you want in, you don't need to do anything; that's the default this year, due to overwhelming positive response in previous years.

Also, the event will run from December 14th to January 3rd.


Yes, I think we definitely should. It encourages participation and might get some of our more inactive reviewers (myself included) to do more reviews :-)


YES! Because HATS!

Oh, and also because we like Fun™ around here.


On the plus side...

A massive boost on the fun level. Gamification on steroids.

On the negative side...

Uhm, is there a negative side? No there isn't, BRING ON THEM HATS!


Uhm... premature?

Do you know something that the rest of us don't? Are you sure that we need to "sign up"?

My expectation is that WinterBash is now a "default" thing, and that individuals get to opt-out if they don't want to see it.

So, is there some place where there's an announcement, or are you just guessing?
