Back when Nexus forced everyone to have Nexus accounts to download MODs, one of the arguments was to help people get more involved with the community and provide feedback on MODs.
However that argument falls on thin water, when Nexus allows MODs to redirect the Nexus Community to other communities in order to get support and provide feedback.
Most recent example I have is this, Cyber Engine Tweaks at Cyberpunk 2077 Nexus - Mods and community (nexusmods.com)
Straight from the MOD page:
The discussion section and the comment section here are not for posting bugs or troubleshooting. (so the discussion forum was removed, as was the bug report section because we want the bug reports on the github page or on discord).
I believe Nexus should not allow MODs that force the community to register and share (third-party) account data in order to get support, it pretty much forces the Nexus community to join other communities to get support on content that is on Nexus.
Some MODs take it a step forward and we have no option whasoever to even comment on their pages, BethINI at Fallout 4 Nexus - Mods and community (nexusmods.com)
I question again what is point of enforcing Nexus accounts, when we can't even provide feedback nor file bug reports on the Nexus itself. Not to mention this splits the Nexus community between those that are ok sharing all their account data and joining multiple communities to get support on multiple MODs, and those that would rather have everything centralized on Nexus.
