    I'd be particularly interested to hear how people have dealt with cookie consent for GDPR. 'Affirmative choice and informed consent' is a minefield in that area - and results in some truly hideous blocking modal approaches (looking at you Invision...)

    Seems like GDPR has produced a feedback loop of hysteria sending people into implementing ever more prominent cookie popups - overlooking the fact that many people still don't actually know what cookies are...

    Do you mean “good” from the user's perspective, or from a business perspective? Because for many businesses, the best consent form is probably something that obscures the details and tries to force the visitor to choose YES! — using deceptive labels, tiny cancel buttons, manipulative copy.


    I believe the best user consent form is the one you don't have.

    If designing a consent thing is a challenge, then there are too many options (like a thousand 3rd party trackers and spammy newsletters).

    Really enjoyed how the Ahrefs folks handled it: http://drp.mk/i/18vq3zvgZ1

        Hey Mitch. Just the simplicity of it. It wasn't a pain to deal with (actually showed up when I logged in without prompting) and made the purpose very clear.
