So getting this popup all the time on every forum navigation or refresh on desktop or mobile views  and it is annoying as hell. it seems to have started a few days ago and no amount  of fiddling with browser settings or cache clear seems to make any difference. Is anyone else getting this all the time or is it just me?

I have put up with it for over a month now and it is also driving me nuts. However, I noticed this is now prevalent on many of the websites that I visit regularly.

Not just you. But it's also not just here. Folks in EU and NA communities have also been complaining of the same thing too! So it's a global issue with their web settings... which means you can only hope they will fix it sooner than if it were just little ol' us.

I wish it was gone... particularly on mobile the #%&$@!!!!ing popup takes up about a quarter of the screen... then comes back... every... damn refresh or navigation.

Not much you can do about that; it's required by EU regulations that all sites now have that notification that users agree to have cookies stored on your computer. All you can do is to click on it to go ahead.

Alex. You. Are. The. Man.

 

This was driving me insane, well... more insane.

 

Still, can't believe I have to change browser just for one WG forum site to be functional.  WG I know you treat the forum as the red headed stepchild vs discord,  but really this is just getting wilfully obnoxious.

FWIW the cookie popups were driving me insane as well, no matter how many times I accepted them, but it seems to have gone away as I haven't seen them on this site for a few days at least.  I don't use a mobile browser though.

I was getting it on the desktop browser also, albeit it seemed slightly less frequent.

Chrome?

 

I'm on FF and haven't seen any issues with cookie pop-ups.

 

THAT SAID, I do run NoScript and uBlock Origin.

Use brave on pc as well. Duck duck go is default engine and there's no tracking.
Sometimes it's too good and blocks a pop-up you want lol (not often). That's the only time I use any other browser.
