    It's the American name for biscuits. Nothing to worry about.

    Yeah, new regulations from the EU I think - if a site uses cookies, they gotta explicitly tell the user - looks like EG are borrowing BBC's example.

    Saw something similar on Nectar the other day.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Became law here on the 26th, everyone's had the last year to sort their sites out.

    Mind you, roughly 95% of our clients seem to be ignoring it and hoping it'll go away...

    Not sure if this is the Do Not Track feature which I think might be a button prompt rather than cookie options which may be an EU only thing.

    Only came in on the 26th. Can't keep cookies without consent now. Anything else I could type would be googled stuff so I'll stop there and admit that's the extent of what I know.

    Seems bizarre given the gov want to track everyone's movements on the net, yet sites have to give you an option to disallow it. The left hand doesn't seem to have a clue what the right foot is up to.

    What are they going to do, block the non-EU sites that couldn't give a shit about it?

    I think they're being a bit lenient - read that a ton of government sites haven't been sorted yet. Basically, don't worry about it until a user complains, then put it up.

    It's more to do with 3rd party/tracking & cookies for 'trivial' usage. Stuff actually required for a site to work e.g. a shopping cart doesn't need consent AFAIK.

    EG has tracking cookies?

    Surely they can find their own porn.

    Yeah, I can see a ton of people switching off cookies completely out of "fear", then complaining that they can't get shopping carts to work, they can't login (stay logged in) etc etc.

    It's basically just facebook and google doing all the user profiling anyway.

    EG is like a postwank cigarette, I dread to think what filth I have dragged here.

    Ironic they do this after Eurogamer has one of the most annoying fucking ads I've ever seen. A great big crosshair is exactly what I need when looking over the forum.

    Yeah, between that "Crosshair" ad, the pre-video trail and the spam in my inbox they've ensured I'm never going to watch War of the Dead.

    It's a shitty, unpoliceable law... waste of everyone's time. IMHO!
