I did this when I went the first time luckily I was able to find the damn post where I wrote a handy guide to interacting with a roving cypheroftyr, so here it is for Wiscon 39.

Overall I am pretty friendly but I do not like strangers touching me, especially my hair. If you try to pet my hair or touch my locs without express permission or invitation it will not end well for you. So just don’t, especially if you like having fingers.

If we are tumblr/LJ/DW friends but have not met IRL, feel free to say hello and if you ask first I’ll likely give you a hug/want a hug. I’m actually quiet and introverted in real life so if you see me fleeing for a quiet space or my room, it’s not  you I am just feeling overwhelmed and need some quiet time. I have a terrible memory so if we have met just once or twice at previous Wiscon’s I might not remember you immediately, please don’t be offended.

I like to take photos, but I will always ask permission before taking them and again before posting them on tumblr, LJ/DW, flickr etc. I don’t mind being in photos, but ask me first before posting them online.

My badge name will be cypheoftyr, and I’ll probably add my twitter handle (@cypheroftyr) once I’m there. I’m on seven panels O_o! so if you want to chat me up afterward, please ask. Sunday is a ridiculously long day for me, so by the end of it I might not be the most gracious person if asked to chat after panels.

I’m also on the ConCom, so I might be a little more frazzled than usual this year in addition to a heavy panel schedule. I don’t bite, really. A pic of me below, taken a couple months ago. It’s the basis for my #FeministDeck artwork by KivaBay.
