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

Ok, I read you post a few times and I think I have the gist of your feedback. 

 

If you're not happy with the categories/tags/filters on offer, I'm all ears on your suggestions to improve them. We are doing a lot of work behind the scenes already but we're always open feedback.

If you are really open to feedback, here is my tuppence. 

 

Nexus really needs a better search.  A search which understands boolean logic operators like and/or and not logic modifiers.  A search which recognizes and respects a "must contain" argument.  Boolean operators would necessitate a search that treats arguments as individuals instead of treating multiple arguments as a continuous string, and a search should recognize that material enclosed in quotes is to be treated as a continuous string.  A search should also understand that weapon includes the plural. weapons, and derivative words like weaponized.  A search should recognize that punctuation marks like commas are there for readability and are not part of the search argument unless enclosed in quotes.  And a search needs to be recursive, such that one can search within the results of the previous search instead of starting a new search in the effort to narrow results.

 

Nexus really needs to do something about tags on mods.  Either make them mandatory, or get rid of them. Without some meaningful criteria and requirements, tags are useless; they look nice while contributing nothing, like utters on a bull.  Barring a meaningful fix for tags, give users the option to block mods without tags from search results.

I'll have to check that out! Ty.  Also I bought a month of premium... I've probably downloaded 100+ files in the past 24 hours following VIva New Vegas :D

 

Also it was pretty late.. but I'm pretty sure I was thinking that there are too many options when it comes to filtering things. I regularly use just a few options when I'm digging around, and I just link directly in to mods if I can without using search at all. The site really seems to hate filtering things, but that's just from my, uh, unique perspective? I'm glad you were able to get anything out of my half asleep tirade lol.

 

Incidentally, the servers have been running great for me up until a few minutes ago - now I'm pulling stuff at around 500kbs with MO2, first file maybe at 600Mb almost. I assume the servers are just busy. I'm patient though, I can wait :smile:. Thanks for replying!

 

Edit: Ya, there's a lot of confusing points in there. I'm sorry lol

My main grip re: tags is I can't tell what a checkmark means: does it mean "show these files" or "exclude these files"?

test it.

put a check mark in - see if you can see the files.

remove the check mark - see if you can see the files.

simple. huh?
