Skepticon Policy Updates

Skepticon Policy Updates


Due to a group activists, it has come to our attention that our Color Communication Badge system we were planning to use is not sensitive to those with Red/Green color blindness. We have since updated our policy to reflect that, here are the changes:

  • Showing a green sticker means that the person is actively seeking communication.
  • Showing a yellow sticker means that the person only wants to talk to people they recognize, not by strangers or people they only know from the Internet.
  • Showing a blue sticker means that the person probably does not want to talk to anyone, or only wants to talk to a few people
  • Having no stickers means that person is comfortable verbally confirming their boundaries and social availability.

Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention. You all have made Skepticon even better!

See you all soon for SK8!
