I like the idea and agree that it would be useful for mod authors. But, it seems like it would take much time to add what is essentially just another Comments tab with different rules. We already have the forum mod authors can use if they want bug reports posted in a specific place, and personally I think that's good enough. This is just my opinion though, and does not reflect what the administrators think about the subject (moderators have no control over the changing of the website).
@Yogeshk yep that's right that's what I would compare, to not only upload it fast but first of all to allow people download it fast and to be sure the service wouldn't be shutted down every second week for example.
I think not everybody is using torrent (I think 90% of people yes, but anyway), so want it make most easy to access download. For same reason I would more likely invest few € monthly for cloud than make it harder for people to download it from xy links (:
@MetaGTA Finally...someone who thinks similar to me. While I believe in artists rights, I think that's voided once you're taking content from somewhere else (like porting a ped from a game then importing it into GTAV). Its your work that went into transferring it but its not really your property--it can't be and they should really understand its in their BEST interest that its not their property.
Claiming its your property & or making serious $ off it can be a dangerous legal problem. Sure, we all want an honor code of asking permission but take this one guys problem a little bit ago. He translated someone's document from one language to the other... Is that copyright-able? Its a grey area that gets everyone nowhere and costs modders the enjoyment of modding when things become legal. The last thing ANY of us want is to have Take2 force us to stop modding or at least end the public websites like this one...
Think of modding as a gift. Its your gift to the GTAV modding community. If you make money on donations via PayPal or Patreon, great..but it doesn't give you anymore rights to what you create---because it comes from the poison apple of modding technically being illegal and against the ELUA of the game.
