As someone that tries/trials many mods, it would be great to have a personal down-vote system or personal note system per mod page.


Nexus allows us to endorse mods that shows the community and ourselves that we enjoyed the mod enough to go back to the page and mark it as endorsed.


But what about mods that we didn't care for and never want to accidentally add to our load orders again?


Unlike how endorsements are public, it would be great to have a system only visible to each individual user (and no one else) that allows us to down-vote mods and/or place personal notes about that mod for ourselves to reflect back on if ever necessary.


Many times, I've gone to a mod page that shows I'd downloaded it months or years before (may or may not be "tracking" it), but it's no longer in my load order. But I can't recall if it's not in my load order because I didn't like it, because of my current playstyle, or because of this or that. Do I want to try it again? Or do I need to stay away from the mod due to bugs or just personal preference? If I do install it again, do I need to make edits to it for whatever reasons?

It would be great to have these private notes on mod pages to see.


But if that's too tricky, even a simple down-voting system would be an awesome addition! Obviously it's something that should remain hidden from the public. Mod authors release their work for free for the community and don't need anything to hinder them from doing so or causing hurt feelings, etc. (Plus, this isn't Facebook.)


Let me and the community know what you think about this!

Do you have any similar ideas or maybe suggestions to make something like this even better?
