  1. Respectfully, you have said you piece on this topic. The impression given by your posts is not a "calm" one and some posts border on slander against Nexus. So this is your friendly warning, dial it all the way back or I'll purge the thread.
  2. I think, if we are honest, this debate is about different things for different people. However, the big sticking point seems to be that Nexus' backend was changed, then the TOS was changed, then people were notified. Nexus are now giving authors the means to delete all their files, as in remove everything, but only by filling out a manually processed email template and only until the start of August.
  3. The system went live a few months back, at least, but ToS at Nexus was only updated at the end of June, and the change only announced in July.
  4. Hi guys. Just to say, the mod team are aware of this topic and the "spirited discussion" it has provoked. We're happy to allow people to discuss it here, so long as things remain civil. Mods and Admins will not be commenting as this is a public forum.
  5. Just a friendly reminder to stay away from politics guys. Not that anything that has been posted is against the rules, but I feel like we had the "In my day" rant a couple of weeks back already. Not that's I'm necessarily unsympathetic to the sentiments expressed.
  6. Yes, you can PM me the sanitised version. I would just caution that we're probably going to introduce a rule about direct linking to "adult" content shortly to avoid instances of "ARG! MY EYES!" Just fyi.
  7. Bear in mind that footfall here is lower than at Bethnet or Nesus. I applaud the effort, I wouldn't give up on it yet, but remember it'll need to stew for a little longer.
  8. He's disabled. Check the console in the image you posted.
  9. The post you made is here: As we said, you are entitled to your opinions, but we don't allow anything libellous or political on the site. Your post falls foul of both those rules, as does your subsequent post apologising, in fact. Referring to someone as "PC" as in "politically correct" in a negative context is making a political statement. Someone who considers themselves "PC" could then read that, become offended, and then next thing is we have a flame war. Hence, we don't do politics here. You can say "I think Bethesda's moderation of the site over the past few years has been crap." You can't say, "I'm sick of Bethesda forcing their filthy Commie ideals on me through their moderation policies." Like I said, best to stick to facts. You don't know what Bethesda's internal culture is like, from the few Devs I've interacted with at Zenimax etc. I'd say it's pretty chill. However, all sites, especially one representing a publisher, have to maintain very strict standards with regards to content or language because they pretty much have to maintain a "U" rating.
  10. It's worth knowing that at least one user in otherwise good standing was banned after deliberately scraping the site. That was Halgari, whilst "testing" Wabbajack, and when he queried the ban with me and I pointed him to the rules he admitted to not having read them and tried to use that as a defence. His subsequent rant on reddit about the modding community was due to a conversation he had with me over the rules the Nexus enforces regarding 3rd Party patches, rather than anything Arthmoor said to him. In answer to your question, some of the posts in this thread have attributed certain characteristics or political beliefs to Bethesda's moderating team over and above a general level of carelessness or lack of competence. Since I doubt anyone here has access to the staff's PM's or other private communications they couldn't possibly know what political beliefs they held. But hey, look, swearing (in moderation) is cool here.
  11. You'll notice that swearing is not specifically censured under the rules. You are perfectly free to swear, if you so wish, so long as you are not swearing at someone, i.e. attacking them, and it is not excessive, i.e. spam or harassment. Note also the prohibition on "adult material" that doesn't cover sweating but would, for example, cover swearing in the context of describing 'lewd acts'. As a general rule, however, I'd suggest people refrain from swearing profusely and avoid some of the more taboo curse words in the English language. Nobody is going to punish you for saying "dick" but calling someone a dick is not going to go over well. Basically, if you wouldn't shout it out in the middle of the street, best not to post it. Edit: I studied medieval English at university, so I have a very good grasp of the history of curse words in the English language and I guarantee I know some you don't. I'll take a very dim view of any attempts to "get one by the censor."
  12. Hi guys, So, if we could just keep things on an even keel here. I understand that a lot of people are frustrated with Bethesda closing their forums and, by the looks of it, at recent moderation policies. We have no objection to you expressing some frustration but we'd ask you do so in moderation, lest we need to actively moderate. I'm reposting the forum rules here for everyone, I'd specifically draw attention to point five on the list with regards to some of the things that have been said. Let me be clear, we expect all members to conduct themselves as though they are in 'polite company' and some of the posts in this thread have definitely skipped over that line. This is the second time this thread has drawn my attention for less than positive reasons. Should I be drawn back here a third time it will be with a view to active moderation, which nobody here wants. Some members may wish to consider a little light editing, because if we do start strictly enforcing the rules we'll be going through all recent posts. So let's everyone just take a breath, have a cup of tea, and relax. Rules For Posting and Chat By posting to this site, you agree to the following terms: No hate speech. This includes but is not limited to: racism, sexism, and bigotry. No harassment. This includes but is not limited to: "trolling", "flaming", and antagonizing others for your own amusement. No promotion of illegal activities. This includes but is not limited to: Pirated software, commonly referred to as "warez". Child pornography. Instructions for how to commit a crime. Scams, pyramid schemes, or other means by which to cheat people out of money. No adult material of any kind. No posting of libelous claims against another party. No spam. Generally defined as any unsolicited bulk advertisement. No automatically generated posts. Including, but not limited to, the use of bots or other programs to post or handle registration.

We ask that all posts, status messages, and any other text, including chat sessions, be conducted in English only. The administration reserves the right to make judgments on any material posted that does not clearly fall within one of these rules but is deemed to be offensive or falls outside the confines of general decency. Questions about this policy should be raised in private with the site administrators. Public discussion of administrative action is not permitted and any such topics raised will be immediately removed and the poster may face additional punishment. Please note that these rules also apply to all other portions of the site as well and not just to forum posts, file comments, chat sessions etc. Yes, this includes PM's if one party to a private conversation reports the content to us.

  13. We don't do politics here, everyone gets on better that way.
  14. If you want to do that I'd suggest you upload to the galleries and link to pics. Otherwise you risk saturating your max upload limit for the given thread, which irrc we still have in place.
  15. IT'S TOO LATE! Fun factoid: I was around in 2006 when He Who Shall not be Named was active and popular, I was then on hiatus until 2008 or 2009 for various reasons. When I came back one of the first things I read was this blog post by Arth. I basically stepped back from modding just as this was all going down, so caught only the first whiff of it, came back and... yeah. Anyway, Arthmoor's Blog and a bunch of people discussing this topic eventually led to the formation of the AFK Mod Team as loosely affiliated co-operative group, and the founding of this website. So the story has a happy ending, of sorts.
