it makes me sad to see so many creative modders have left or stopped their work. the 5th of august 21 was a game changer and a big surprise for me but in the meantime it changed to indifference. i will never understand the strange nexusmods priorities since this day and what happened the whole last two years (hidden to me due to my severe lack of awareness - simply not daily concentrating on mod collections) but i'm now aware (since 1st of july 21) of the priorities and that i have to accept that future or instead to better leave nexusmods, throwing away my paid premium account or to use it as an empty shell.
what felt like a trusted modding home will probably never feel like that again. but instead we are all part of a new "mod collection priority" community. freedom of mod authors mod creation seems suddenly overrated. strange cathedral and parlor discussions popped up out of nowhere.
if i login i see this blue collections banner. i must have overseen it for two years or longer including the daily "mod collections priority" advertisements and banners before the 5th of august. sorry for my unawareness!
i hope most creative mods can still be downloaded on nexusmods and creativity gets the attention again it deserves even if not in the near future!
i hoped a few weeks admins work at least hidden in the background on a technical and automated solution of this major annoying issue but i'm not even sure anymore they handled it as what it still is. it still seems a better solution for nexusmods that a mod uploader has to beg an admin to solve the problem of an accidentally faulty upload manually (what they thankfully do). i do not understand the difference between the manual and a comfortable mod author initiated solution by technical means at least within a grace period of one day and why nexusmods prefers the "manual beg the admin" method. seems that this would have been too simple or mod uploader friendly.
