    Should be fixed. It looks like some settings didn’t get migrated when we upgraded to v4. I suspect other team leads are also affected, but we’ll have to go through all the settings for all the groups when we switch forum software, so we’ll wait until we switch before fixing this for the other groups.

    Shadows of the Alik'r is incompatible with "Hammerfell - The Fix" since SOTA changed all of the FormIDs I had a look at Hammerfell SOTA on this site and it appears to be outdated, I honestly forget I had uploaded it I'll upload the new version tonight

    Happy late New Years. 2018 will be getting a nice small but soon to be big mod coming to Skyrim Special Edition on Xbox and PC, sorry PS4 players the scripts that are required are not (stupidly) compatible for PS4. The mod is my personal mod, I didn't get any help, so expect to have slow updates, but great updates. The mod should be released in it's beta stage before or by 1/13/18. Update: Changing upload date to 3/28/18. I'm going to release it when it's near the end of the beta/close to full release.

    You keep twisting the words of those who don't agree with you. Turning that around, by your logic we should call the police every time we see someone walk past our home to prevent them from breaking in, because they must be a burglar if they're walking past our home. Or perhaps we shouldn't do that in case the police are in on it, so instead we should run out and attack the person ourselves to make sure that they cannot steal from us. Criminals go to prison, but then they mostly get released again some time later. When they're released, they might get a job. Should the company they then work for be shut down because there's an ex-criminal working there? That's what you're trying to do: just because someone who (at least according to some people) did steal mods seven years ago is now a part of ModDrop, ModDrop must be evil and must be shut down. That isn't how the world works, real criminals are given a second chance, so even if the accused is guilty of having done something seven years ago (or three years ago as you're also stating) that doesn't mean he's still doing wrong now. By the way, there are no ads in ModDrop, and no ads on the ModDrop website, so there are no ad providers to be made happy. There's also no malware, you can scan any download before installing it, which I did for ModDrop with two separate programs, it's clean. You're simply promoting paranoia, while at the same time promoting ModDrop itself. In doing so, you're also appearing rather over-aggressive toward anyone who doesn't accept what you say. And we're not even rejecting or denying what you say, we're simply saying that we will wait and see whether wrong-doing occurs. That isn't like letting burglars and killers run wild, it is like letting unknown people walk past your house because there's a pavement out there intended for people to walk on.

    Also I'm so excited for no good reason! I got permission from the university that produced this: https://sketchfab.com/models/c1c3d5de369246baa56219df95cf43fa for a 3D model exhibit to convert it to Oblivion to make a http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Chub_Loon

    For some reason, your status updates had been disabled. They were set to disabled, but they could be enabled by you. I don't remember any of that, so it might have been an upgrade glitch. Anyway I have enabled them for you. If anybody else can't create status updates, please let us know. Everybody should be able to do so.

    ModDrop

    You're putting words into my mouth, when did I propose ignoring the upload of this modpack, something which I am not even aware of, or of ignoring possible modtheft which I do not know the facts about? I said that I do not know who was right and who was wrong seven years ago, and that I am not going to search the internet for everything I can find on something that apparently happened seven years ago as it would be a waste of time - it's been seven years. The fact that I am not participating in the Skyrim community and so haven't seen issues unfold just proves my point, I don't know what's happened (or what accusations have been made) in the past so I should not make a decision based upon what I do not know. I proposed that people who do not know what happened seven years ago should be allowed the chance to judge fairly based upon what happens now, rather than being encouraged or ordered to judge immediately. All I am seeing from one side is "ModDrop is evil, the creators are evil, down with ModDrop, stop using ModDrop" while from the other side I am seeing apologies from the developers for the actions of uploaders (remember, the uploaders are not the developers) and mods being removed upon request. Open Cities could just as easily be uploaded onto Nexus; Nexus does not inspect every upload for approval before making available for download; Nexus responds to reports. It looks to me like ModDrop is doing exactly the same. Also, there are no stated terms in the original OC Complete 1.0 archive, and the mod page on Nexus is hidden by the author, so I'm sorry, but without those terms I am not seeing anything bad here. Additionally, the company is offering access to uploaded files, which again is exactly the same as Nexus does. Again, unless someone actually reports the upload, you cannot expect the company/developers to recognise an unauthorised upload. Now, truly, your permissions for OCC/OCR do not apply to OC Complete v1.0, however I have just reported OC Complete v1.0 using ModDrop's Report function, stating that the current author denies permission to reupload, and linking to the OCC page on Nexus, and I wait now to see what happens. This however is not a perfect test since the developers of ModDrop could recognise like I have that your permissions do not apply to this file. If the original terms for OC Complete v1.0 were viewable online then a more solid report could be made. I have also reported Unique Landscapes: Ancient Yews v1.2 as well, linking again to that mod's page on Nexus. I expect one of the following: To be completely ignored For the files to be removed from ModDrop For a response (via email, as stated on the Report screen in ModDrop that this may happen) asking for more information or stating why the files will not be removed

    Seems like our feedback was heard. Interested in seeing where things go from here. If the guy sticks by his word this time, I'd be surprised.

    ModDrop

    I haven't taken a side, I merely stated that when one person shows anger and makes accusations, and openly states that they are deleting any comments that don't match their view, and there are clearly no comments which don't match their view, that is too one-sided and biased - the accused isn't even there to defend themselves (and would have their comments deleted if they were), thus I naturally sympathise with the under-dog as this is bullying and I dislike bullies. Doesn't that remind you of Giskard, using his website and forums to post lies and accusations while not allowing the accused to even register, banning anyone who said things he didn't agree with, making threats etc.? To me, this could be the same situation aimed at the developers of ModDrop, I don't know. I'm not aware that there has definitely been any mod theft. I have read that there were accusations of theft, and I have read that those accusations were false. I will not just accept the accusations because they have been made, and I will not just accept the denial because it was denied. I don't know one way or the other, but I do know that the accusation is from around seven years ago and was nothing to do with ModDrop itself which has only existed for about 6 months (and yet almost no one had even heard of it until haters started telling everyone not to use it), but rather to do with one of the people responsible for ModDrop, who may no longer do what he may or may not have done seven years ago. I also know that I have no desire to spend hours digging and investigating in hopes of tracking down the truth, I've read enough to know that I do not know one way or the other. So I accept that he may have stolen mods, and I accept that ModDrop may be intended to enable mod theft, but I also accept that he may never have stolen mods, and I accept (regardless of whether or not the accused did steal mods) that ModDrop may be a genuine mod management tool which just happens to contain some features which appear to be for the purpose of mod theft, along with an EULA which protects the developers rather than the users and modders (which is standard in my experience), and poor staffing for content moderation. I also question (in admitted ignorance on license agreements) whether an EULA should be expected to offer protection for modders who are not users of the program, since if a modder doesn't use the program, why should the EULA agreement protect them in any way - they haven't implied agreement through usage. Have you contacted the developers to request a take-down? Have they responded if so? That's what matters to me, if modders have found their mods on ModDrop, actually made an attempt to resolve it with the developers, and what the end-result of that attempt was. Otherwise it's all just hate and accusation for the sake of hate. I do know that around 400 Oblivion mods have been removed since the first time I looked at ModDrop on around 21st/22nd Dec. I don't recognise any of the available TES4/5 mods as being yours (Open Cities is available but it's an old version from before your took over the mod, so permissions are not yours) and UL Ancient Yews is there (I either missed it when I checked on 29th Dec or else it was restored having been taken down) but again permissions are not ours from UL Council, so is allowed to be there.

    Good grief. I hope it works! Have you guys seen My Cat from Hell? Jackson Galaxy’s show. He remodelled a shelter in California to show off their cats better. Huge improvement.

    The reason nobody offers up solid stats as to how much is available through the service is because you have to install their client and agree to a rather piece of shit EULA before you can access the downloading features. A couple of willing souls did exactly that once ESO (the Youtuber, not the game) began promoting the thing. Everything they've been accused of this time around is entirely true. This also isn't the first time they've pulled something like this, or the second. Twice before, Skylar has tried to pull end runs around modders and their rights. The first time was a site called GMod (likely intentional to trick Garry's Mod users into visiting) where he uploaded hundreds of mods and then had the audacity to charge for access to them and demand that mod authors had to claim accounts on the service to then remove their work. Which they didn't even honor. The second time was under their corporate entity name of Olympus Games where this time they decided it would be cute to run an indexing service similar to Pirate Bay that also bypassed the download controls on Nexus so that the only traffic was file leeching. Needless to say in both cases they got brought to task hard by the community and by Nexus as well. So this is actually their 3rd attempt to set up a service that bypasses copyright and distributes mods illegally. I'm sure people can understand why nobody wants to trust them this time.

    I wish we had a channel like that! The closest we have is the Science channel but that only comes with the more expensive cable packages. The worst part of your dad giving you his entire VHS tape collection? Picking through it to get rid of his gay porn....

    Okay, so I while ago I mentioned the possiibility of altering the tail rotation of the Slaughterfish's animations so the tail goes up-and-down instead of right-to-left. I finally had some time to peer into the guts of files, and yeah it is possible...just kind of tedious. Considering I've done several aquatic animals that should move that way, though...I'll get it done, lol. Edit #1: Fuck BSplines. That is all!

    @Amadaun This is who I was referring to in the other thread. Her name was Cyra, Persian for "Moon". My "baby" from 1998-2015. Ironically, also the year my twins were born, so she briefly got to meet my new babies.

    Dear 2018: Can we maybe stop with my friends, family and pets going to the emergency room? That would be great.
