Celeron55 recently wrote on IRC that migrating from IRC is 'unthinkable', so the decision has been made.
Does he even participate in minetest in any way or form? I think it is just his opinion.

Re: Proposal: make Matrix official as much as IRC

IRC is cool, but I see appeal of matrix(or whatever it is analog of discord)/discord(tho better not depend on it), not gonna lie, it is easy to use, has features like displaying/hosting images/files, emojis, voice, yada-yada, it is like modern IRC (bloated yeah). We can't pretend like we are in 90-2...

Re: "not enough memory" random crash?

This issue deserves a lot of attention, I've seen many times those strange OOMs with modpacks that somehow reported very little memory usage.

Before switching engines you have to ask yourself: Is it worth it? And how Irrlicht holding you back with minetest, is it a serious problem?

Re: Minetest is boring (clickbait) A few thoughts about Mine

Big problem in MTG is lack of mobs in it, add even a few and that will completely change the feel of the game.

Re: MT 0.4.17.1 Memory

Try this GC64 build that avoids memory problems: https://kitsunemimi.pw/tmp/minetest-0.4 ... 4-win64.7z

Or use minetest with regular lua, by default minetest uses luajit that can only use 1gb of RAM.
