Just scroll down and it should say you don't have to pay, i think i payed though :3
I never got the free account choice ever. But after several emails and comments I finally got accepted for a free acccount. Took over two weeks.
Just being a repository for free items is nice, but what do they do other than that to feel they should get some money? I know it cost to store, but how much does that cost. Do they charge the modders to upload? To keep thier files available? Do they pay the modders if their files are downloaded?
I joined Nexus for the first time in August, and I got a free account. There's a note on one of the registration pages that you don't need to pay. I will say, though, that it was extraordinarily frustrating. I never got the verification email and had to go through the Nexus Forums to backdoor-activate the Nexus mod downloads account. I've read in various threads that other people have found Nexus' registration process aggravating, too. Keep at it -- you'll get in.
Just become a paid member and everything works much better. Best $30 I ever spent.. Well worth it...

Hosting the all that free content for you is expensive. No, they don't charge modders, but Nexus gets way more traffic than people realize:

Downloadable files 103,073
Downloads 347,192,435
Unique downloads 197,361,687
Members with files 12,505
File views 1,301,184,771

Imagine one person paying to host that and paying staff to help run it, while only relying on Google Ads... Without a bit of help you wouldn't last very long.

I got the free account from day one. I've had the account for a few months now.
