To continue Thomas' tradition (which was a continuation of doppelgreener's tradition) of collecting the memorabilia of transient hat awards (and maybe also share the how we got secret hats? I think I got one but failed to record it, grrr... but there is a treasure map how to find them) here is a post for sharing selfies this year -- with hats! Apparently there is no special theme this year (but thanks to Splunk for sponsoring the event).
I'm only a poor hobgoblin, so I'll just say: be nice to people, and leave earth better than you found it.
What follows is the template from Thomas (which he copied from doppel), explaining how this works:
Every Hatmas, we wear and see fun and dapper combinations of hats: the hats go away at the end of the Hatmas season, but we can still preserve some memories and pictures of the fabulous hattery we've seen. To that end:
Let's have a fun and/or slightly embarrassing yearbook. Post the great hats and hatments you've seen. Show off the ones you made for yourself which you think are fantastic or fabulous or the greatest. If you spy an excellent thing in the wild, I guess you can stick that here too.
I recommend one answer per person (or a small number), and revise it to make additions. Keep it silly, keep it fun, and be kind. (Everyone's going to feel self conscious posting anything here, so I suggest we leave criticism at the door.)
How do I take a screenshot?
- Use the Lightshot extension for Firefox or for Chrome.
- Windows 10: press win+shift+s for the built-in Snipping Tool. In Windows 7, you'll have to search for that tool in the start menu. Otherwise take a screenshot of your browser with alt+print screen, crop it in MS Paint, and save it as a PNG (not GIF or JPEG).
- Mac: press cmd ⌘ + shift ⇧ + 4, then click and drag to outline the region you want to screenshot. The screenshot will be saved to your desktop.
- On Linux: Gnome/Ubuntu: press shift ⇧ + print screen, then click-and-drag over the region you want to screenshot and save the screenshot somewhere. If the shortcut doesn't work, either set it up in System Settings/Keyboard/shortcuts/screenshots or use a tool like Shutter.
Here's a magic link to your public profile that's perfect for screenshots.
