Hi, this topic has been brought up many times before, however the people who raised the issue were rather disrespectful and rude about it, and were rightfully punished for doing so. That being said, I'd like to make clear that this topic is not meant to be a confrontation, rather a bit of friendly advice as well as a starter for open discussion.
Anyways, as of late, I've been noticing an influx of mods that really do not add anything unique to the community. When I say that, I'm not referring to the quality of mods, rather the purpose. Why spend time adding to the tons of trainers available that are generally never used, when you could be creating something unique that nobody has seen before?
What's the point of taking an already made model and slapping some custom rims on it? Would it not be better to let people install the original model and make your custom rims a tuning part?
Now, this issue has been raised from both sides before. ThEDarkEvIL noted that we shouldn't rate mods by "saying (we've seeing the same kind of mods over and over)", when that really is part of what the rating system is designed for. The beauty of a rating system is that you can express your opinion of a mod based on multiple points. Whether it be the quality of a mod, or it being the usefulness of a mod, that's what it's there for.
Anyways, I feel that the admins need to take a stronger stance on removing mods that don't add anything to our community. If this continues, the site will degrade more and more over time, to the point where nobody wants to use it anymore because they don't want to spend an hour looking through the new mods for one thing that's cool.
Edit: Also, this doesn't mean remove everything that doesn't have an obvious purpose. For example GrandTheftFacebook doesn't look very useful itself, however it creates an interesting starting point for other mods to expand and create awesome things.
