Switch to new cookie manager

Description of your request or bug report:

I’m still constantly getting spammed to accept cookies, recently several times a week. There have been problems from the beginning and they continue to occur. This happens on Natively itself as well as the forums, on desktop and on mobile. Please switch to a less buggy cookie manager.

Ah yes, please.

I think it was a side effect of my setup but I was getting really annoyed about it.

Oh wow, I had no idea it was that frequent. I must say i’m a bit confused how that could be happening (it doesn’t happen to me and you’d think its just basic cookie tracking). You or @Megumin don’t encounter these issues with other sites?

If so, you’re right this cookie manager has been a piece of trash in a lot of other ways and warrants removing. If its impacting you that much however (multiple times a week), I would up the priority.

I’ve never had this happen on another site. Are you making changes that update your cookie policy / tracking to warrant it asking for permission again? I use an adblocker, but none of those more complete blockers that tend to cause havoc.

It pops up for me frequently too, as another data point. Using Chrome on both my laptop and on my phone, happens in both places. I don’t see it happening in other places I frequent excepting one news site I visit (local news).

No. Alright, i’ll push it up in priority then, will try to get it out very soon.

Edit: I’ll probably switch to that other cookie manager we talked about before, but i’ll look around a bit.

Preferably one that has a one button to reject non essential cookies please. The cookie managers that make you loose 2-3 minutes in a sea of buttons to disable them are also quite annoying.

Of course. Actually GDPR requires a ‘decline’ button like you are describing :slight_smile:

I got prompted again this morning on both mobile and desktop. Since it happened on both, I don’t think it’s random, but I still have no idea what triggers it.
