Thank you guys for all the nice answers!
I will read the Citizenship guidelines now ;)
@baronaatista + Aeradom: well, I am a huge fan of immersion and realism (I know, the word is abused a lot), so mods like Frostfall, Campfire, Footprints, Hunterborn, Nock-to-Tip, Real Bows, Follower Stealth AI, Immersive Patrols, Immersive Citizens, Civil War Overhaul, Dragon Combat Overhaul, Ultimate Combat, Enemy AI Overhaul and Enhanced Blood Textures are mods I want to use. Mods introducing new content are always interesting too, so long as I feel they are lore-friendly/or that it is content I believe should have been in-game from the start. Interesting NPCs, Inconsequential NPCs, a few animal follower-mods, Immersive Armors, JaySus Swords, Lean Wolfe's Better Shaped weapons, Mods that enhance stealth gameplay and mods that enhance playing as a Werewolf, like Moonlight Tales and Heart of the Beast. Immersive Horses, Left Hand Rings, Immersive Creatures and Immersive Sounds Compendium/Skyrim Audio Overhaul, or Better Thieves Guild Requirements, RS Children Overhaul, Community Uncapper and High Level Enemies. (The list goes on) And last but not least- Mods that make Skyrim look as real as possible and High quality textures. Especially the last part is...well, my system is not very good.
My experience with Modding? I still view myself as a complete newbie, and my very first experience was that I completely shot my game. I installed too many mods, too fast and didn't watch out for compabilities at all. Afterwards, I watched Tutorials from Gopher, installed SKSE and Nexus Mod Manager (want to switch to Mod Organizer, though and for that I'll also use Gopher's videos) and began to use LOOT and TES5Edit. I also tried to read through everything before installing a mod, checking compability and stuff. Tried being the keyword. As far as I know, I indeed have no conflicting Mods currently (not according to LOOT anyway), but I made the mistake of installing quickly and many with the result that I don't really know which mod does what. No, actually, the far bigger problem is that I've found so many mods I like, that tweak the game how I want it and my PC being as low-end as it is simply cannot take so much new content. It's lagging, a lot.
That is how I eventually came to STEP. So my goal is to make a stable game with as many mods as I can. Preferably with all those Grafics and Texture Packs but more likely without those. At first. Because I am saving up for a good gaming processor and Graphics card. And I am assuming that I can install the graphic/texture mods onto an existing save.
At the moment, I still have mods installed through Nexus Mod Manager, but I am not playing and I am going to delete them, and reinstall Skyrim. Don't know whether I can reinstall Steam, but I'm hoping that will not be necessary? I ask because the STEP Guide wants new users to begin with new and clean installations of Steam and Skyrim.
