# Kofia hat not awarded?

I made a post in after December 26 and I did not get the Kofia hat. Is this a bug? Does this mean that you make the first post on the site between 12/26 and 1/1 or does this get awarded when you make your first post in that date range? If the latter, there is a bug.

• Looking at this similar Meta.se question, it sounds like the post must have positive score to get the hat. Could that be it? – alexwlchan Dec 28 '14 at 15:54
• I wish I could give all of my hats to you so that you couldn't whine anymore in the 2014 winter bash. – Venus Dec 28 '14 at 16:28
• @Venus Well, if you read my post, you would realize that I read that description. I was just confused about the "first post" part because it could mean many things. For example, look at other hat descriptions with the word "first" in them − the mean something else. So I wasn't whining. – Ahaan S. Rungta Dec 28 '14 at 16:57

Description of Kofia hat says

first post between $12/26$ and $1/1$

As mentioned in this MetaSE post

It has to be the first post you did on a site. So if you've already left a question or answer on a site, you can't earn that hat for that site

If you still want to earn your hat you're welcome to make your first post on other SE sites.

• @AhaanS.Rungta I hope it's clear now! – Aditya Hase Dec 28 '14 at 17:06
