# What's our policy on questions asked merely for hats?

Let's say I just posted this to get a hat. What is our policy on such questions, either on Meta or on the main site?

• As long as its a good question, its fine – Beastly Gerbil Dec 19 '16 at 15:47
• (Did you just post this to get a hat??) – Beastly Gerbil Dec 19 '16 at 15:47
• @BeastlyGerbil Nope, I got the hat earlier by voting. Now I'm testing for secret ones with this :P – Mithical Dec 19 '16 at 15:48
• Apparently "This is fine" – LeppyR64 Dec 19 '16 at 16:05

• The tag winterbash does not exist. – EKons Dec 24 '16 at 11:42
• @ΈρικΚωνσταντόπουλος It exists on meta ([meta-tag:winterbash] -> winterbash), just not on main. – wizzwizz4 Dec 27 '16 at 18:27
• @wizzwizz4 No, I meant that only this question uses it. Sorry, I meant winterbash. – EKons Dec 27 '16 at 18:32
• @ΈρικΚωνσταντόπουλος The tag exists on Meta Stack Exchange, so I assumed that it would be an acceptable tag here. – Mithical Dec 27 '16 at 18:41
• @Mithrandir Why not? I didn't say you shouldn't use it, I just thought that you might have put it in by accident. – EKons Dec 27 '16 at 18:42
• Do we really have a hat for asking puzzles? sings "Oompa loompa doompety doo I've got another puzzle for you..." – ABcDexter Dec 30 '16 at 13:48
• @ABcDexter if you ask it on the hour now... – Mithical Dec 30 '16 at 13:50
• @Mithrandir Yes, sure, maybe on new year day. I am kinda busy doing nothing :) – ABcDexter Dec 30 '16 at 14:02
