In the serverlist, some servers show the names of players online, and a list of mods.
How does that work ?

In minetest.conf I can set server_announce, but no options to specify such details.

The server sends this information to the serverlist automatically.

I'm still wondering, because not every server shows those infos.

Also, I wanted to put newlines in server_description,
but it seems that "\n" is treated as a literal.

legal aspects?

i for example would like to know what liabilities come with hosting a server in germany.

you really have to work on docs about legal aspects.

technically I could set up a server, but i don't want to get legal problems due to server hosting.
When I first came here, this was all swamp. Everyone said I was daft to build a castle on a swamp, but I built in all the same, just to show them.

A lot of updated software supports the German requirements. I know the software I bundle has severl places where it requires the user to acknowledge what data you will collect from them.

You should ask a lawyer, and not a bunch of random people on the internet.

lawyers cost $, so every developer must be a little lawyer, too.
