Hello, I've been a silent mod and nexus user for years, but due to the recent circumstances I'd like to make this simple request:

Should you decide to remove your stuff from Nexus (or already did so) and choose to put it elsewhere, please be so kind to tell us humble mod users where you're going so we can still find you and your projects on the interwebs in the future!

 

I don't even wanna jump in much on the loud and bustling bandwagon that is the discussion about "collections" and deletion rights, everyone is entitled to their opinion no matter how popular / unpopular. My two cents is just: To me it looks like Nexus has planted themselves a fancy gravestone with the decision to strip authors from fully controlling their own creations (which is wrong in so many ways!), splitting the community in an instant with a single newspost. Famous mod authors are leaving the sinking ship and quick. It's just incredibly tragic.

 

So yeah, please stay in touch! If users care about your mods and the countless hours of time you devote(d) to them, they will continue to support you, as long as they know where to find you!

Check the authors profile.  I, and others provide linkage to our mirror sites.

Aye, that'll probably be the main way to find where we've all gone. Until Dark decides to silence authors there too, anyways.

Have you all of you disaffected authors (and to be clear, I support you 100%), considered banding together and maybe setting up a collaborative sub-reddit (though... you'd likely want to make it by invite only... if the behaviour of the Skyrim sub is any indication), or something similar on an entirely different site?

 

Anyway, yes, if you even feel inclined to share your work somewhere else after all this (and I wouldn't blame you if you are no longer have interest), please do let us find you. :smile:

Yes please, those who are leaving (I understand why), give us a link or something about where you are.

 

We are gonna miss you. I won't download modpacks, I will still curate my modlist by myself, discovering mods and speaking with each modder.

 

Thank you.

Was it really? It looks like this has been cooking for nigh on two years, and they're obviously not interested in compromise (or discourse, for that matter). At this point, I'm not sure this could have ended any other way.

 

On topic, authors who leave now, especially non-Bethesda modders, are more or less bound to scatter to the winds. Their profiles are definitely the best place to check up on them, but many (myself included) will probably just stop sharing content altogether. At least for a while.

I gotta be honest, some of the responses I've seen on these forums, several sub-reddits, and gaming news sites, plus the attitude from the "Nexus Cheerleading Squad" ™ Who are rampantly yah, yah'ing through almost every post regarding this issue have definetly soured MY desire to ever share anything I create ever again.

 

I thank the OP and others here though for showing not all mod users are ... <insert expletive of your choice here>

And I'd like to ask mod users, not just mod authors, to voice their concerns and opposition in any way they can, here or elsewhere, then maybe we won't be in a situation where you'll have to ask for alternate links.

Otherwise, such requests sound like nothing but a disguised 'so where can we continue to get stuff" (For example, in case of ********, a person who's here from 2009 and so far gave like 9 endorsements to people he supposedly supports, this doesn't inspire belief in sincerity).

 

To those who think their voice don't matter I will repeat again,

yes it totally was avoidable. you can make a choice to avoid something, but its obviously the more difficult choice to make with complexity and complexity means additional cost.

c'est la vie.
