Winter Bash 2013 is now over and the site will soon be taken down.

What are the final leaderboard standings for the EL&U site?

(Network screenshots can be found here.)

I would like to make special mention of our own favorite moderator, RegDwight, who not only topped the charts on our site, but also on many of the other sites.

Although three other users received more unique hats than Reg, Reg crushed the competition by earning an astounding 604 hats total across the network, soundly thrashing his nearest competitor by a margin of 400%. Or so. I didn't do the math carefully.

Behold the beauty that hat fever produced: Reg's hat boards

    Actually, Reg's nearest competitor in the total hats category is the 'Community' bot-user, with 585 total. That's about a 3% difference. His nearest presumably-human competitor is Gilles with 321 total hats, so about 47% fewer than Reg. Others with impressive total hat counts: Robert Cartaino (238), Nick Craver (231), Geoff Dalgas (224), Shog9 (219). (I only checked users with 9 or more distinct hats.)

EL&U itself came a respectable 9th overall. Here's a screenshot of the top of our leaderboard:
