We all love the hats,* and we covet the fashionable scarf of the Timey Wimey hat.

But please, make edits that you would be proud of during the rest of the year. Edits should be, as always, either substantial improvements to the post or otherwise be important.

Trivial edits on old questions not only make the baby hats cry, but also threaten the integrity of the time streams.

* Apart from our resident hat-haters.**
** May not actually hate hats.

    Giving people a special hat for making trivial edits was dumb – Valorum Dec 20 '15 at 21:11
  • @Richard I think the system for detecting trivial edits is quite naïve/primitive. Otherwise I don't see how they could still have an edit based hat without trivial edits being thrown into the mix. – AncientSwordRage Dec 20 '15 at 21:35

    @AncientSwordRage - Indeed. Having an edit-based hat (in general) was stupid. – Valorum Dec 20 '15 at 21:37

    Absolutely. Of course, we are all agreed that grammar, spelling, and punctuation are not trivial? – user14111 Dec 20 '15 at 22:05

    @Richard - most hats are stupid. Posting at 5pm or 0pm sharp? Seriously? – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 21 '15 at 0:31
  • I feel like we need to not do hats next year because the edits were so ridiculous. – Wad Cheber Dec 22 '15 at 1:43

    @WadCheber Well, they could just get rid of that one hat... – Rand al'Thor Dec 22 '15 at 1:44
  • @randal'thor I also had a problem with useless questions being asked in the hopes of getting a hat... – Wad Cheber Dec 22 '15 at 1:45
  • @WadCheber OK, maybe more than one! – Rand al'Thor Dec 22 '15 at 1:46
  • Simple solution: Dunce cap for trivial edits. I wouldn't wear it, but I'd have one by now. – Major Stackings Dec 23 '15 at 3:07
  • @MajorStackings so many would though.... – AncientSwordRage Dec 23 '15 at 8:04

    Since hats are over the "featured" tag should probably be removed. – Erik Jan 4 '16 at 16:31
  • At least some old questions are getting cleaned up – Underverse Dec 26 '18 at 11:25
