From Minetest

[DONE] Please link to the FAQ page

There is a FAQ in this wiki, based partly on a thread in the forums. I don’t have the user rights to edit the main page, so could someone who has the rights add a link on the main page to the FAQ? A FAQ is pointless if it is not prominently linked.

[DONE] Add other IRC channels.

There are at least two other channels:

  • #minetest-de @ Freenode (German, link)
  • ##minetest-es @ Freenode (Spanish, link)

Could these links be added on the Resources section?

These channels are also linked from the IRC page on the main site.

[DONE] FAQ page split-up

Hi, I have split up the FAQ page. All technical problems have gone to Troubleshooting. It feels more logical to me to keep those two things seperated. I request a link to the newly created Troubleshooting page. --Wuzzy (talk) 17:12, 17 December 2013 (MSK)

[DONE] Add new Main Page language

Please include Japanese. I have created the page. Rui on 9 March 2015, at 01:00

Please include Indonesian (bahasa indonesia). I have created the page. Srifqi (talk) 18:21, 27 September 2014 (MSK)

Main_Page/id, Main_Page/ru and Main_Page/cn can be added. CraigyDavi (talk) 18:57, 3 January 2015 (MSK)
Link to german translations: Main_Page/de 19th January 2015 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Butzel (talk)
I added German to the main page as it looks complete enough. Note that the users usually expect several pages to be translated already; so, I won't add languages like Russian for now, but only when they will be more complete. Calinou, 22:54, 21 January 2015 (MSK)
Okay Calinou, I will translate more pages to Indonesian. Srifqi (talk) 18:16, 20 March 2015 (MSK)

[DONE] New Link

Can a link to the Advanced Beginners Guide be added somewhere on the main page? Cessna151 (talk) 22:16, 18 October 2015 (MSK)

It's indirectly done via the Tutorials page. --Wuzzy (talk) 18:12, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

[DONE] Missing links to "Subgames" and " Maps" in Tutorials section

Missing links to Subgames and Maps on main english page in "Tutorials" section

Done. --Wuzzy (talk) 18:12, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

[NOT DONE] Add link to Rubenwardy's modding book to the main page

Reply by Wuzzy: I don't think this needs to be on the main page. It's good enough it it's on the Modding-specific pages and/or the Dev Wiki --Wuzzy (talk) 10:14, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

[DONE] Allow people to register again

Hi! I've heard not even the core developers are allowed to edit this wiki. How about opening registration for everyone again? Or at least add a hint on the homepage on how to get an account. Was there a reason why registration was locked down? --Wuzzy (talk) 16:40, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

This can be considered done, as people can request wiki access thru the forum. --Wuzzy (talk) 22:09, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

[DONE] Add Biomes and Map generator to homepage

Can you please add the pages Biomes and Map generator to the home page? Both explain pretty crucial core concepts so I think these pages should become more visible. --Wuzzy (talk) 16:42, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

Done. --Wuzzy (talk) 18:12, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

[NOT DONE] link to the Mod Search Engine

I ask to add a link to the Mod Search Engine The section of mods on the forum turns into a dump because of the lack of subheadings (subtopics), the native search of the forum is buggy and does not find all the mods, what's why sometimes we see almost full copies of mods appear.

I don't think it belongs to the main page. It's good enough when it's in the Dev Wiki or on the specific page about modding. --Wuzzy (talk) 18:12, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

[DONE] Introduction is completely wrong

The current introduction to Minetest is very very wrong. It says that Minetest is a “game” and the text mostly describes Minetest Game, not Minetest. Minetest is no longer a game since version 0.4.0.

Suggested new description:

Minetest is a game engine for various games which usually play in an open world made out of cubes, inspired by InfiniMiner, Minecraft, and the like. You can download games, mods and texture packs in Minetest or join a server.
Minetest is free software, released under the GNU Lesser General Public License (version 2.1 or later). This allows the better support by the community and a static improvement.

[DONE] Edit rights to Main Page

I hereby request rights to edit the Main Page directly. It's becoming tedious to ask for permission for every single edit. You can trust me, I have contributed to the wiki for almost seven years. --Wuzzy (talk) 10:07, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

Done. --18:12, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
