Reposting describes the uncredited re-uploading of (mostly copyrighted) files without the permission of the author. Reposting is one of the worst things a mod author can go through, and here is why:
If a mod gets reposted, the mod author doesn't have
any control over the files on the reposting site. This means that malware/adware could get on your computer when downloading/using the mod.
No income for Developers
Developers live from income. If you download from reposting sites, they won't get any revenue, which could mean less mods from them in the future.
Reposting sites might link you to outdated versions, which could mean more bugs, crashes and errors for you.
What we do
We do our best to provide you with up-to date site lists, a browser extension to block sites, and more.
Block bad sites
Don't want to accidentally visit one? Download our browser extension to be safe!
Maintain a list
We submit new sites periodically. Want to help other users? Find and upload sites so others won't download from them.
Open Source on GitHub
You can visit our GitHub repository to view the site lists. Also, we're always happy about a star!
What can you do to stop mod reposting?
1. Don't visit reposting sites
These sites mostly make ad revenue from every visit. Visiting reposting sites supports them. You can download our free extension for Chrome and Firefox here
2. Report reposting sites
If you discover a new site and don't see it in our lists, please notify us about it via the Submit Form or our Discord Server.
3. Support the movement
Every follower, like and retweet helps spread awareness amongst users who download mods. You can also use our hashtag #StopModReposts or you can also donate on OpenCollective.
4. For mod authors: Request the removal of your mod
You can file a DMCA takedown notice to request the removal of your mod. Please keep in mind: DMCAs are legal documents, and you must make sure you understand the full procedure, and the consequenses for not following it.
