    I know a lot of people are saying that putting this up will encourage people to put out shoddy, low quality, useless mods. But, in my opinion, it is also a wake-up call to those of use who do try to make good mods but lack either the motivation or patience to do so. When you throw money in our faces, it gives us a lot more incentive to stop procrastinating and gives us a reason to actually push out mods. I personally enjoy modding, but I hate the fact that many of my mods get ignored. There's no rewarding feeling when you make a mod and don't get anything in return. While money is a horrible replacement for views and downloads, it atleast fills the hole long enough and has a LOGICAL use in your life, rather than the little feeling of satisfaction you get when you see your mod has gotten some downloads and comments.

    What is Skyrim? Another Singleplayergame with just barely average graphik and gameplay? Who the fuck needs mods for this game? pls modders, go modding usefull games like SC2 or at least Multiplayergames. Watched a hour of Gameplay yesterday, why is this Game so hyped? I think its forgotten in some days...

    Yes, we realized we were a little too excited about the Skyrim launch, but can you blame us? We're really just gamers too. I know I and many other Curse staff stayed up for the launch and were playing into the morning. It's an exciting opportunity to connect with other gamers and mod authors.

    Just give us some time, right now we wanted to try this new type of program with Skyrim because it's the latest game to come out and this happens to be our latest idea for rewarding authors.

    We really do love all of our mod authors :)

    It's not whining at all. It's also not jealousy. As one of the folks who could easily switch focus and make a mod that would qualify for this, I'm not impressed.

    The main reason is that it's encouraging people to leave Mapster (where you aren't compensated for anything) and go to Skyrim (where you are being paid to do well and further rewarded if you continue to create content).

    Normally I'm not opposed to providing compensation for authors who make amazing mods, but this isn't the right way to do it. It is much better to reward people AFTER they have committed to something because you are more likely to compensate those individuals who will continually make great content than those who are only trying to snag top spots for money.

    Sure some of the mods will be cool, but they aren't being created with the right mindset.

    This announcement would have been better received 1-2months after Skyrim's editor was out. Those modders who were genuinely excited would have already established themselves and worked through their first few "experiments" that prepared them for said contest.

    I think it's great that Curse is so enthusiastic about modding, but I think more thought should have gone into this before announcing it. Especially given that they are already going to be adjusting the due date(s).

    yeah I agree you guys are whining abit, just get into it if you are interrested in Skyrim and see how it works out I'd say. be enthusiastic rather than jealous, please... :/
