More information can be seen here. The Cookie Law Explained
What this means for all of us is that we will be deploying a function that will appear to UK and EU IP addresses and provide them with the relevant information and the chance to opt out. If a user chooses to opt out of cookies this will impact basic function of the site.
Here are a few exampled of this change and how it will affect you;
- "Remember Me" will not work anymore as it's a cookie tracked function, so members will be logged out more often.
- "Already Read Forums" may not be viewed as read.
- Mobile layout choice will divert back to its original state.
- The Multi Quote function may not work
- Any page layout changes.
Thank you for your time.

Fair enough :) Only thing I'd ask: Is there a way to get around the 'remeber me' function not working? Being logged out in the middle of trying to post a long post/pictures is irritating to be honest. No worries if it's a legal requirement that you cant get round.
Rereading your post, will I be able to 'opt in' to you still using the cookies?

And now mummy to puppy Charlie too! Who said pugs are addictive?! :)
I come across this a lot now when using websites. All of the ones I have seen so far have basically said you are opted in to cookies unless you choose to opt out, and some then give you a link if you do want to opt out.
I don't know but I suspect you will find that the default option is the opt in one.
