Keep PC Game Mods Free!

This petition made change with 54 supporters!

Valve Corporation has decided to move forward with a program to charge for PC game mods (see Steam Workshop post here). We, as the gaming community, do not appreciate the fact that this program was initiated with no feedback from the end users. To protest this, we have made this petition to ask Valve to involve the public in this debate. We are all going to be affected by this move, and we want to have a say in how this proceeds.

One of the best things about the modding community as it is now is that mods are a labor of love by the developers. We know they are truly devoted to giving the end user an experience worthy of the game being modded. The work that comes out of these projects is exceptional, and is loved by the community.

To sum up: involve the community in this decision, Valve. It may well be that the community chooses to support this decision, but at least give us the choice to decide our fate. How did two of Valve's most popular game series, Counter-Strike and Team Fortress, start out? They were labors of love, done by the community and transformed into games that millions of people play. Let's keep that spirit alive. We should be the ones to make this bed if we're going to lie in it.
