After surfing/voting/closing on Programmers this morning, I realized that I had earned a few hats! When I went to check where they were at so that I could show them off, I found that some of the hats that I met the criteria for still aren't there after >20 minutes!

I'm guessing hats are going to take longer than badges to get and be seen, but why such a long wait? When will I get my precious hats?

There's a small delay (anywhere from 30m to 2h) for hats, similar to how badges sometimes take a while to appear, the server side scripts that award them run periodically.

Patience young grasshopper!
