Do not trust this site. there are many ads that say they are the download link and it is very hard to find the REAL download link. The ads that claim they are the download link give your computer viruses. Since this site has A LOT of ads leading to the virus sites, it should not be trusted because a site that has ads like this has something to do with the viruses, and that is NOT trustworthy AT ALL
The site has some advertisements disguised as download links, I got a Trojan virus from a misleading download link. be careful when installing. Make sure to not click on a advertisement that looks like a download link. I recommend an ad-blocking tool to help find the actual link.(Edit) I recommend just not using this website. if you wish to install mods or texpack. please just use planetminecraft, and find out how to manually install mods (like I did) without using the mod install helpers on this webpage.
Downloads listed are not what they claim. They list mods for "1.3.2" when the author has not even updated the mod for 1.3.1 yet. Website author is lying and only trying to make money from the website hits.
This is one of many sites notorious in the Minecraft community for rehosting other people's work, often with false information (saying that a map is for 1.8 when it's for 1.6, etc.). Modders report that their binaries have been changed, and many users report malware/viruses.
They deliberately take advantage of kids' lack of net-savvy, so I rate it unsuitable for children (although it has no adult/shocking content AFAIK)
HOW does a site like this get positive ratings?
This is a SCAM site that steals peoples copyrighted materials, falsely repackages them with VIRUSES and ADWARE!
This website gives your computer viruses. My friend clicked the download link and it instantly gave his computer a virus. Do not trust the high ratings for this site. The high ratings are probably from the creators of this virus website.
This website is rated highly, but it contains links to sites that is untrusted. I would think if this site were to be trusted, it would not contains links to untrusted content. Therefore I don't believe this site should be given a trusted rating.
This is a minecraft mod site. I have used this site for a while and I have never had problems with the mods*.
The only complaint about this site is that it has ADS everywhere! which can be misleading to trick people into downloading something malicious.
To Experience the best of this site I recommend an adblocker to block all the ads and be careful where you click.
The reason why there are so many ads is because they make money off of it, which they need to keep the server running. The Download link will be a BLUE HYPERLINK WITH TEXT (E.g. Download Optifine for Minecraft 1.6.2). ALL THE OTHERS ARE MISLEADING
*Edit: Ever since 1.7.4, the mod versions are misleading. So they may have an article saying a mod is updated to 1.7.4 but is only an older version say 1.6.2
Watch out! I got two warnings for suspicious activity from avast while downloading a program MCPatcher (which, by the way, I never had problems with in the past). Use this site with caution if you do go here, but I recommend you listen to the others.
They are good but sometimes they have trick ads which say "download" or "virus scan" which are fake and should be avoided with common sense
