Oops, I accidentally posted tomorrow.

Even by stackoverflow's UTC timezone standards it is still the 29th. enter image description here Am I missing something?

It's the 30th somewhere in the world.

From This meta.Stackexchange post :

Unless the requirement mentions a specific timezone, hats that are date-based are often awarded for 14 hours before and 12 hours after the specified date in UTC, to accommodate people everywhere in the world. This means you can earn such a hat even though for you it's not even that day yet.

  • Ah I knew there had to be a post about it somewhere. Seems like an odd way to go about accommodating everyone but makes sense.
