The home of the world’s best mods, Nexusmods, has announced it is banning any and all political mods relating to the US ahead of the election.
In a new blog post, the website notes that a number of “provocative and troll mods” have been uploaded to the site as of late, and that the Nexusmods team will now be banning any content that falls under this umbrella.
In a statement, Nexusmods writes: “Considering the low quality of the mods being uploaded, the polarising views they express and the fact that a small but vocal contingent of our users are seemingly not intelligent or grown up enough to be able to debate the issues without resorting to name calling and baseless accusations without proof (indicative of the wider issues plaguing our world at this time) we’ve decided to wipe our hands clean of this mess and invoke an outright ban on mods relating to sociopolitical issues in the United States.
“We have neither the time, the care or the wish to moderate such things. This ban will apply to all mods uploaded from the 28th of September onwards. We will review this restriction sometime after the next President of the United States has been inaugurated.”
The news comes as more and more people try to upload edgy and political content to websites including Nexus, ahead of the presidential campaign.
If you come across a political mod while perusing the Nexus catalogue, the website encourages you to report it.
The statement adds: “Smile and be happy in the knowledge the time it took them to make an account on the site and upload their mod is a lot longer than it takes for us to ban the account and delete the mod.”
Thankfully, the mod which places everyone’s favourite ogre, Shrek, into Resident Evil 3 won’t be harmed by the bans. Created by pro modder MrMarco1003, this is one terrifying – and amazing – mod. If you want to add Shrek into RE3, you can find everything you need over on Nexusmods. This truly is a masterpiece, and one of the most realistic-looking mods out there. Well done, MrMarco1003!
