And this, gentlemen, is why gifsicle and imagemagick are superior (if you know the right syntax, that is :D). And since it's just some static stuff pasted onto a screencap, shouldn't be too hard to recreate. The real question is should I?

It's kinda difficult, really. You may really want to meet certain people or have a look at stuff you like. In these cases, you don't attend the con for trivial matters or communication purposes.
The thing is, it's as hard to get by at a con as it is anywhere else, as soon as you leave your house (with a few differences between individuals, of course).
This is where the colour badges come in, as they can actually do some kind of "damage limitation", if you know what I mean.

Friend did bring up a good point. Con environments bring out a lot of enthusiasm about their related subject, and it gets to the point of personal space violations pretty easily.

But instead of giving "Cards of Shame" out for people to use, they should be impressing the importance of politeness and good manners upon attendees, and take actions against those who are unwilling to adhere.

But, seriously, if you are a "Red Card" you probably shouldn't be at a Con in the first place.

The only real stupid thing about this is it's going to be yet another thing that these people will start expecting "The Real World" to do, and they'll flip out when it doesn't happen.

In other words "WHY DON'T PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF TUMBLR RESPECT MUH TRIGGERS?!"

Are you trying to troll? Do you seriously imply the exchange will end with flashing cards at each other? That no actual verbal contact, actual standard socializing past that is required?

Why? Conventions are all about making new friends and meeting old friends. You won't make many new friends if you don't approach strangers, and approaching strangers who simply don't want to be approaches leads to situations unpleasant for both sides (and many people will choose not to approach them simply for fear of such situations.)

What is it with people increasingly communicating with silly cards these days? Is it really that difficult to just use your words.

@Vree
That is what autism is. They can be in crowds just fine, and can initiate and converse with people they know well or have a need to talk to , but freeze up when someone they don't know approaches them (even in a friendly manner) and opens discussion. And as such they can't reply "Please, could you not talk to me right now?" because of that.

FWIW, the diff between yellow and red is that if they are using red, they are only going to want to talk to a short-list of people they know very well (eg close friends). eg: let's say you had met someone with a yellow badge on Day 1 and they approached you, you had a good discussion, and it was clear you both had a good time talking. If you saw this person on Day 3 with a red badge, you should not approach him (you're not on the list), but if he had a yellow badge, you'd be free to approach him again.

Ps. And yes, I realize it's facultative. :D It's just cute to poke fun of, because it is.

I kinda like the idea of "come and talk to me" badges though.

And no @Texy, people do not object to people wearing warning signs because they are born jerks. >.o

Are people REALLY that socially awkward that there is a need for this? Pathetic.
(I mean, yeah, cons can get pretty hectic but COME ON!)

I love how they even have separate "Don't talk to me" and "Only talk to me if I know you" badges. Aren't those pretty much the same thing? Are you saying there are people who won't even talk to their friends and need a warning for that? xD

I propose that we introduce the same system for parties.

I want to be able sport my red badge, to go to someone else's house and sit quietly in the corner without the risk of someone asking me to dance or engaging me in conversation.

All the people whining about this don't seem to understand that it's for their benefit as well. I don't think it's much of a stretch to assume that the sort of person who mocks this is the sort of person who would get pissed off if they got told to go to hell for complimenting someone's butt or whatever; wouldn't you appreciate it someone was wearing a sign that said "If you compliment me on my butt I will tell you to go to hell"? If you're one of those 4chan HAW HAW AUTISTIC Я FUNNy!!1! idiots, congratulations— now you know who to avoid. You're welcome.
