Not 100% certain about this, but it appears that you can give yourself hat tips! I hovered my mouse over the little yellow hat in one of my own posts but I didn't click the hat. The hat 'wiggled' as if it would allow me to click to give myself a hat tip if I'd wanted to.
If you can give yourself hat tips that will skew the accuracy of the feedback from the community. ..Maybe disable the ability to give hat tips to one's own posts?
LOVE the site and it looks beautiful!
