When I first started working on GTA5-Mods.com a little over two years ago, I really had no idea what it would become. I was coming from my admin position at GTA4-Mods.com where I was involved with website development and mod approvals, but this site has turned out to be a whole other beast - in a good way! There's no denying that GTA modding has "gone mainstream" with GTA V after the countless IGN and PC Gamer articles, YouTube live streams, and let's not forget an Angry Plane or two. It's been a huge pleasure being able to support this growing community over the years with the site and to work with the thousands of talented modders and millions of downloaders that made it all happen and helped me grow both as a web developer and as a person.
As the site keeps growing, so do its needs for content moderation and feature enhancements. I haven't always been able to keep up with the amount of amazing feature requests from all of you, as you may be able to tell from the growing queue in the Site Feedback forum! I've been operating the site as a hobby of mine for the past two years knowing that I couldn't always dedicate the increasing amount of time that it was requiring.
All these reasons are why it's bittersweet for me to announce that I'll be stepping down as administrator of GTA5-Mods.com and handing over the reins to @Dark0ne, @MrMason and their staff, who you may recognize from the popular modding site Nexus Mods. Over the years I've received a steady stream of people offering to become administrators and mod approvers, to partner up with the site or to merge with it, but I never felt confident that these people would be able to continue the site's legacy. When @Dark0ne approached me and we started discussing the site and modding community in general, I knew it could be a good fit. I started remembering all the times I got a feature request that ended with "...like they do on Nexus Mods" and I knew that his staff would be able to provide the tender love and care that this site deserves. Though GTA5-Mods.com will continue to operate the way it does today, I've seen the awesome modding hub that @Dark0ne and his staff have in the works for the future of Nexus Mods, and I'm confident it'll be a huge, much-needed step for the entire modding community when it's complete. Starting today, they will be your go-to for website-related questions, feedback and reports. I'm hoping you'll join me in welcoming them to the GTA5-Mods.com community and continuing to support the site for years to come. Onwards to GTA 6!
Thanks again for all your support, and I will surely keep in touch with you all here on the forums
