I just got an Mmmm Bacon hat which is described as

ask, answer, or vote on December 30th

but it's still December 29th??!!

Whom do I need to tell?

  • See Is there something wrong with “Mmmm Bacon” hat mechanism? on Meta SE. I can only hope you aren't a vegetarian or a vegan :-P

  • Actually the answer given does not explain this behavior. It was still the 29th in Auckland(GMT+13), Tokyo(UTC+9), and Shanghai(UTC+8) when I received my hat.

  • I pointed to that question because hats are a feature that works across the Stack Exchange network, so Meta SE is the most suitable place to check or ask about it.

  • In a nutshell, the hat can be acquired as long as it is December 30 somewhere in the world, so the actual window (due to timezone oddities) is slightly over 2 full days.
