Color code  
The Bronies (who are into colors anyway) introduce con badges for how much interaction one wants.

Thanx to File 770

What if you're in a different mood at different times during the con? What if you forget to change your badge? Would it be a good idea, security-wise, to have more than one badge anyway? Why does this remind me of the Open Source Boob Project and its "voluntary" buttons? Is there a badge color meaning "I think this whole badge coding thing is stupid"?

It looks as though one can opt out.

They did this at Eastercon this year. Nothing happened, really. Some people wore badges, some didn't, some did sometimes and didn't other times.

They had a version of that at Wiscon.
Right alongside some stickers with six or eight choices of pronoun so you could tell people what you wanted to be called.
