In short mini-modding is a declaration that something is, or is not within the rules. Key phrases that indicate someone is mini-modding include:
- "This is"
- "You shouldn't be doing"
- I am
This can also extend to certain actions, like trying to tease information out of individuals of wrong doing.
There is a miryad of issues than come from these actions:

- This can lead to arguments and fights

Bethesda have just released an email advertising that Fallout 4 will be free to play this weekend (25th-28th May) only. For anyone who has a steam account or Xbox Gold, now would be a good time to have a play around and pick the game and its downloadable content up for up to 67% off.
Update 05/26/2017: I have now seen the Steam offer and can confirm that Fallout 4 is 67% off and the Season pass has been reduced to 40%. Individual DLC packs have not been reduced and remain at full retail price. If I get confirmation of the Xbox prices I will update these as well.

Recently there appears to be a jump in trolls on here (but it could be me) on the recent activity list. They are a nuisance, but in their own annoying way they can be useful for improving articles.
