why not, this is the best method to "read" someone's behavior, not the number of post is what matters, but their content, this is your personal mirror and your mirror tells me that you don't really like to thank modders or you don't use mods. seeing your free attacks, I am more tempted to include you in the first category
let me tell you one thing, there are plenty of retired modders here on the forum, they simply don't wish to publish their mods anymore and people have no choice but to respect this. sometimes they can publish updates but with no new content. others migrated to external hosts, opened a paid scheme for their mods, making a little business, here are moderators of this forum with mods distributed exclusively on facebook groups. nobody can blame them as is their work !
so you see, I am not the first one that decided to close the tap of my work, however I am better that a retired modder, just because there are many people here who found my work essential for their games, so they will have the chance to continue using my mods, especially that my main mods remain fully available. the history of this thread is a good start to decide how shall get an invitation to my new discord channel where I will publish my other mods. I go on the presumption that a thief had no chance to find time to make an account on this forum and say thanks to the real modder so if they do it now, it will be too late for 1-2 euros that they get form my mod as you correctly estimate, I even doubt they will ever do it, so even better
actually I had tentatives in the past to retire from public modding and those who got the message (also posted on pirated websites) they had plenty of time to connect on the forum and put a comment, say a thanks (really no need to bend the knee or make donations). I also use other mods and I am very sure I thanked at least once for every single mod I use, this is a good practice if somebody offered a free gift, especially a valuable one, isn't it ? so where do you see the drama?
now please stop with these attacks toward my character because are against forum rules, good luck!
for the friends of this thread, I will take care that everyone interested in my mods will get them, via Discord, Youtube or Steam so really no reasons to worry
