Minetest 5.0 release candidate 1 (5.0.0-rc1) is now available!

This is a pre-release version which has some remaining issues. Please help us by trying it out, and reporting any issues.

Given that the content is user-provided anyway, and isn't PEGI-3 certified

Hi people! I have a mobile app which is rated as PEGI-3. In the app there is a content store which allows you to download mods. By default, "mature" content is filtered out in the app. There is a setting in the advanced settings menu which allows you to show mature content, but isn't directly advertised as such. Does this violate PEGI-3? The content is user-provided but moderated. Mature content includes horror, gore, and drugs

I may just use a Discord server with an IRC bridge, to get the best of both worlds. I'd rather not though!

Hey, I'm wondering what the chatroom software of choice is for the people here! I'm looking for something with usability and features rivalling Slack and Discord. Whilst I like IRC, it scares people a little. Any suggestions?

Hey people! Does anyone know the legality of having some form of content rating on a mod store? I run a mod store where people are starting to add mods which contain things like drugs and excessive violence. What's the best way to allow inappropriate content to be hidden and not fall foul of the the law?

Found a tiny spider in the bathroom.

Normally i'd just put him outside, but it's -20 so i put him in the kitchen plants instead.

Me: closed as duplicate, this is by design, WONTFIX

Cat: Opening bug #34639. It is 11am. Food bowl still empty.

Me: You were fed at 8am. WONTFIX.

Cat: Fundamental disagreement with moderator. Opening dispute resolution process.

Just ordered an 3 B+ to use as a media center with , and also to provide off site backups for ContentDB! Might even install Mycroft on it at some point :D

Companies, I don't care if you ARE running a program to hire a more diverse workforce, don't invite me to join your event because I'm "diverse."

I'm really fucking good at what I do. Invite me because of that, not to fill your damn quota.

Also: No. I'm happy at Juniper, thanks.

Does anyone here own a Mycroft? If so, what has your experience with it been like? Do you host your own servers for it?

It seems that a lot of people are forgetting that Firefox and IceCat exist. Isn't it better to use software backed by a non-profit, where they won't make such changes?

Various screenshots from the #Minetest #SunbeamCity autonomous territory.

Quite a few settlements now utilising potential solar and hydro power sources. Finite resource extraction kept minimal. Plenty of food and technics in the commons. The diverse ecology is flourishing.

As we hope to open this up as an official Sunbeam project in the future, are they any additional mods folkx would like to try?

Here's our current (needs a little cleaning up):
