DISCLAIMER: AFTER READING THE POSTS OF THE TEKSYNDICATE COMMUNITY, I THINK ITS VERY CLEAR THAT BETHESDA ARE THE ONES WHO NEEDS TO BE CALLED HERE. THEY ARE THE ONES WHO DETERMINE THE REVENUE SHARING PERCENTAGE. AND IN ORDER TO CHANGE THEIR MINDS I THINK WE NEED TO POINT OUR THOUGHTS TO THEM, VIA MAIL OR ANY OTHER WAY.
So, what are your thoughts about this.
Do you think that the modders community will leave free platforms like Nexus in order to monetize their content at the Steam Workshop?
Do you think this will be abused?
Personally I am very sad about this. Its not like I don't like the hard work of modders being compensated, but, why not a donate option or something like that, to keep the feeling of a "free community". I don't know I think this will change everything and this is a sad day for me.
Update: Valve takes 30%, Publishers 45% and mod creator 25%, this percentage is not determined by Valve and this is specific for Skyrim.

This 4chan post is only for fun, don't take its content as serious.
In the next link you can find the actual percentage of revenue assigned to mod creators: (This percentage was designed by the Publishers as DeusQain pointed out.)
Statement from a SKSE developer regarding this topic:
Interesting words from a mod creator that had his content pulled down from the Workshop because of a copyright claim.
