There is now a new hat request system along with a public index of all hats, replacing the old hat party thread. Please use this to request new hats that moderators can sort through and approve or reject.

    All hail the Banana King!

    1. 1

      So all users invited by @journeysquid are pretenders to the throne?

      I love seeing how many BSD devs we have here.

      1. 6

        Well jcs himself is one, so it’s logical that other BSD developers use it too.

      2. 12

        Lol, why are the OpenBSD Developer hats in Comic Sans?

              e) it is amazing.

              1. 3

                f) people love to talk about it (same for our use of CVS)

            2. 7

              Am I correct in assuming that OpenBSD devs don’t even see the font because it’s not installed in OpenBSD?

              1. 4

                Yes you are. I didn’t notice until I read this tread :P . fonts/comic-neue ftw!

            3. 15

              Because Comic Sans is secure by default.

              1. 2

                Because you’re using Windows or Mac OS X, perhaps? I’m font-blind, but I think all the hats have the same font for me.

                  1. 4

                    Yeah, I guess I don’t have that font. Which I think is pretty typical for most free OSes. So, I guess being able to see the font outs you as someone using Windows or Mac OS X or Android or iOS?

              2. 7

                I’ve updated the explanation on the hat request page a bit. Hats are not intended to list every contribution of every user, so please don’t request hats for every little thing. Also, if the project has never been mentioned here before, it’s likely you don’t need a hat for it.

                1. 3

                  For the curious, the hat index is viewable aqui:

                  Lobsters appears to be swarming with OpenBSD developers. Putting the crust in crustaceans, one supposes. :)

                  1. 1

                    That’s already linked above.

                  2. 3

                    So are comedic hats a go or no-go?

                    1. 1

                      Judging from my experience, no-go. But may depend on the notability of the comedy.

                    2. 2

                      Neat. Already requested three hats. I wonder if I could do this!

                      1. 2

                        And remember, there’s always money in the banana stand!

                        1. 2

                          No touching!

                      2. 2

                        This is a great idea and a great way to reduce ambiguity.
