I'm not here very often, only when I buy a new old game. I'm always annoyed by the video ads - wait, don't judge - and I usually wind up poking around in the forums to determine the state of everything: the mood, feeling, the angry eyes of disenfranchisement... mostly I make note of signs to determine if Nexus Mods is about to rise up in a white hot fireball upon the horizon after failing a routine insanity check somewhere.
This time I found something neat - a sticky post explaining ads, traffic, servers, moons, teaspoons, all the reasons why Akira ended the way it did and not some other make-believe way, and why it's so expensive to give us the various filters, categories, tags and etc and whatever that we all obviously need and use.
Here I am at 4 something with my feedback: I don't use that crap: I pick my game somehow, I check out the mod categories for it, which are often duplicated and messy and not all that helpful kinda in the way a badly organized Steam library isn't that helpful, and then I get out of there and just sort mods by most downloaded of all time to get the patches and must have crap. Usually, actually, I already know what I'm after because of some other smart guy who never directs me to drill down using the hugely fancy tags and stuff but instead just gives me the exact link or name I need.
I don't recall ever painstakingly filtering out the very idea of a sexy-mod, or becoming red in the face and aghast when some hair or armor mod inevitable chooses a bizarrely suggestive image to present to the casual browser who has not carefully selected various tags and filters to shield their chastity. I won't mention the decidedly quaint place I go for stuff like that, but sexy or gory or naughty-languaged stuff here is a non-issue and not worth the molten flying silicates of net gear, and neither are half the tags and other features that are only used because what the hell else are we supposed to do... know what we're looking for?! Maybe I'm wrong, you know. Maybe some day I'll be overjoyed to play with every tag and filter I can find because when I search for stuff now I definitely don't think to myself ease down, ease down... you're just grinding metal.
Let me use my favorite line: "I get it, I do" lol Anyway, I don't remember who authored the sticky post but maybe they can be directed to this one. Mostly because I don't get it, but also because the post seemed peevish - in an endearing way - and I want to make sure that person knows I at least appreciate everything all of you do, despite my casual usage. And also I've forgotten my lifetime login from years ago, so don't point out that I should probably pay cash money for anything, because I won't until I get over that sad and annoying fact.
I do don't get it though, and to be honest I don't care but I would hate to see this site implode in some beard-rending apocalypse brought on by the ungrateful hordes because of a lack of feedback, and so here you see I'm helping as only the ENFP can, and speaking of that I'll now crawl into bed since it's so late, so so late
