And most importantly, the user who unlocked the most hats during winter bash is Pieter Goosen with 15 hats!

  • Quite interesting to know about the hats. It is quite sad to see that so little (less than 20%) users got more than 50 rep, just wonder how many are still active in the site Commented Jan 3, 2016 at 13:47

    @PieterGoosen Only 850~ users who created their account before December this year ( and Rep > 50 ) has accessed the site in December . Looks like a lot of the users are rep 101 though so they probably came from another site as a trusted user. If I do Rep > 101 the number shoots down to 230~. And just remind me next year lol, the Data Explorer is pretty fun
