Nexus Mods Is a large site with the simple motto “Host if you can change it”. This will be 276,000 files hosted in about 1,100 games, created by 113,000 authors with 23 million members who downloaded 4.2 billion files from the site. It’s an important part of the mod scene, to say the least.
The disadvantage of using such a large and accessible system is that it is not easy to moderate. Nexus Mod admins also call it “a large number of provocative and troll mods have been uploaded based on current socio-political issues in the United States.”They imposed Site-wide ban For all “political reforms of the United States,” at least until the elections are settled and a new president takes office.
“The poor quality of the mods uploaded, the polarized view they represent, and the small but loud delegation of users have problems without resorting to name calls or groundless things. Unproven accusations given the fact that they are not intelligent enough to argue or appear to be underdeveloped (showing a broader issue that is plagued our world at this time) We’ve decided to wipe out our hands and ban mods related to US socio-political issues altogether, “says Robin Mods founder Robin, Dark0ne,” Scott wrote. “We do not have the time, attention, or desire to mitigate such things.”
The announcement doesn’t mention the specific mods that spurred the ban, but the site’s Fallout 4 forum message complains about removing mods with names like “”.Synth Lives Matter“When”Blue Life Matter, “, And others who add the” thin blue line “flag to the game or replace the raider with Black Lives Matter or Antifa’s” Riot “.
In Scott’s view, most of the affected mods were created by “cowards with self-made accounts” and encouraged users to report and move on rather than get involved. ..
“Your engagement only stimulates idiots,” Scott wrote. “Smile and be happy to know that the time it takes to create an account and upload a mod on your site is much longer than the time it takes to ban an account and remove a mod.”
Reaction to the ban PC games, game,and Fallout 4 subreddits are pretty positive. Not everyone is happy, but there seems to be an overall consensus that it was probably a good idea. “It’s their site and they are allowed to decide that they don’t feel like dealing with people’s bullshit,” said one redditor.
Scott has a similar idea of potential demands to justify a policy. “I don’t care what this looks like,” he wrote. “The mods we’re doing or not moderating seem to reflect us, our political beliefs, or what we’re doing and what we don’t want on our site. I don’t care if you do. Say what you want to do on other sites and services and do it. I don’t care about anything here. ”
After the president-elect takes office, the ban on political reforms in the United States will be reviewed, but not necessarily lifted.
