    I see a lot of people on twitter raging about changes at the Nexus. Anyone care to explain?

    "It is our core belief that making modding easier is a noble goal, so more people can enjoy our joint hobby. We are convinced that our collections system, a project we have spent almost 2 years and many work-hours on, is the way to achieve this goal. For the benefit of this system we have to implement a change to how mod file deletions work. The change was announced to mod authors recently, and basically means that mod files are no longer deleted, but rather archived - which will make them inaccessible unless directly requested e.g. via the API. We understand that not everyone in the mod author community shares our convictions and our vision, and that is why we are granting a 1 month grace period in which mod authors can request to have all their files deleted for good by contacting support@nexusmods.com."

    This is probably in response to mod authors sperging over whatever political or social event that hits the headlines. "Drumph won. No mods for you. Someone somewhere is being mean, no mods for you. People are being mean to me and my team, no mods for you."

    Is this what it seems to be over? I can't imagine why this change would matter unless if it's out of principle? Seems like a nothing burger to my layman eyes.

    Maybe now I can find some of the old mods I used without the author deleting them in a temper tantrum one day.

    Nexus has always been a haven for modder drama.
