Mod Author Donation System

Remember. They don't have to do this at all. They could just forget about doing this completely.
If you feel modders deserve something, you can donate them yourself very easily. Some even have patreons.

I agree that trying to make the donation system retrospective just opens a can of worms. Apart from whether it is affordable, mods that have used other mods' assets/ideas/permissions would be impossible to sort out fairly. You just have to say, these are the rules and it starts on this date.
As far as rewarding better or more involved mods, maybe you could split up the pool (I suggested something similar before to support old games). A certain percentage for downloads, then a percentage based on a monthly user poll. Or something similar.
There isn't going to be a perfect system, and whatever system is put in place can always be tweaked if it isn't working right, so let's suck it and see.

I spotted this today, but I can't access the actual post. I guess the launch is imminent...
