'We've seen some provocative and vandalism mods uploaded based on American socio-political issues,' said site operator Dark One, Robin Scott, in November 2020. As the US presidential election approaches, more and more mods containing this political content are expected. '

Also, the quality of the uploaded mods is low, saying, 'Isn't it intelligent enough that some few but loud users can discuss the issue without calling names or making unfounded criticisms? Considering the fact that it doesn't seem to be growing, Nexus Mods has decided to ban mods related to American political issues altogether, Scott said. The ban will apply to all mods uploaded after September 28, 2020, and will remain in effect until the next US president takes office.

'We don't have the time or care to manage mods that contain political content, and we don't want to,' Scott said. 'Most of the mods in question this time have self-made accounts. It's intentionally uploaded by cowards and tries to cause a fuss, 'he said, strongly criticizing users who post mods with political content.

'Frankly, we don't care what the Nexus Mods look like, and our management system reflects the political beliefs and policies of the Nexus Mods management team,' Scott said. I don't care if you think you're doing it. If you have something you want to say or do, please do it on another site or service. '
