You forced me to sign up, so i might as well write this. Dear admins

Forcing me to sign up if i want to download files (mega mod 8 in this case) is bad practice, demanding email verification is even worse. Just rude.

If you are wondering if anyone will sell your email, do what I do. I signed up with a email account, and that's the only one I give out to sign up for stuff. I check it daily for any personal messages, but otherwise, if I get spammed, no biggie, it's not my personal active email. I only give that out to friends and family.

And, IMO, it's only "bad" if you are required to pay something. Which none of those sites or this one do. So, it really is no big deal hon.

To be fair OP isn't the only person that feels this way.

The only time I've ever had my data compromised when Nexus mods forced me to sign up and then got hacked... And then they didn't say anything about it for several years.

 

It's fine with steam forcing us to log in because people use steam to buy games and therefore play their games.

 

There's no real benefit to the user for registering with you guys and equating yourself to hubs like steam and nexus mods is a false equivalency.

Then why did you?  I mean, you just said there's no benefit to you.  And it's obvious you're not interested in making friends.

jupiterlily, this site is by no means "equating themselves to hubs like steam and nexus mods" because they requiring signing in to download.  I guess you haven't been on hardly any forums at all over the years.  Most all forums require people to register and sign in to access various features, especially to post anything.  Even forums on gardening, cats, etc. require that.

Regarding worries about a site being hacked and someone maybe, possibly, getting your email address, so what?  It's not like it is your credit card number they would get.

It has been common practice for decades to have a separate email address specifically for purposes like this, too.

The practice of having people become members in a forum is common practice. E-mails are not sold nor shared with non-admin. Membership is completely voluntary but does have the benefit of being able to download mods from this site.  Note that non members are free to look around.

I'm going to lock this thread to keep us from "beating a dead Horse."
