I think the email that is used to contact the administrators is broken. Before I was able to get back on, I tried emailing the admins via the "contact us" link, and after three days gmail said that mail couldn't be delivered. Might want to check that out too.

about the mmdb:
I was never able to precisely find the reason for it breaking, but i am quite sure it was the transistion from the old forum software to the new one, and some leftover restraints, so the setup was broken, not the software.
Do you still have a dump of the old tables or will it be a new setup?
When installing i recommend using commit 8784886457bdaf666a4915d71c11f5a8abedaead for now, all later commits are step by step removing the dependency on the phpbb accounts and adding own user management. That work will be continued, including adding the phpbb-accounts as one possible auth source, but currently only the dependency removal stuff has been finished.
I will continue working on the mmdb, updating to the latest dependencies, adding vcs and metalink/torrent support are currently on the todo (besides reworking the auth system), but i still have to do some things for university, so don't expect too much until in about a month.

@modders/tp-authors:
Sorry for the inconvenience, xyz and me just did not seem to get along too well, which kinda discouraged me from continuing to work on the project, but i am quite positive that this will change now that c55 is hosting the stuff.

Why there are two similarly looking minetest forums on the internet? %) I was baffled for 10 minutes figuring out where is my recent messages... and everything ends in june 2015... Google somehow redirected me to it.

I'm talking about http://forum.minetest.org/, why is it on?

It's a database backup.

Here's a cleaner solution that I came up with that goes in your nginx config instead: http://sprunge.us/CTSV
This version also redirects you to the new URL instead of just showing the content at both URLs (just change "redirect" to "break" if you don't like that).
Note that this is untested though!

OldCoder: Your backup copy probably shouldn't be publicly available right now, to avoid confusing users and search engines.

EDIT: You should add viewforum compatibility too: http://sprunge.us/jEMH

Issues I've noticed:
  • The FAQ page returns a 403.
  • The PHP run time limit is set too low for a long-running database operation that I need to do (it needs to be set to a good 10-20 minutes or so, although it should probably be turned back down after I finish).
  • The SSL/TLS support is weak: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze ... netest.net
    To fix:

    Code: Select all

    # Disable insecure SSL protocols and TLSv1.1 (everything that supports v1.1 also supports v1, but too many browsers don't support  v1.2)
    ssl_protocols       TLSv1 TLSv1.2;
    # Generate this with `openssl dhparam 2048 -out dh.pem`
    ssl_dhparam         ssl/dh.pem;
    # This provides a pretty good compromise between security and compatability
    ssl_ciphers         EECDH+HIGH:EDH+HIGH:HIGH:!aNULL:!3DES:!CAMELLIA128;
    ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;
    # Enable some caching for performance
    ssl_session_cache   shared:SSL:10m;
    ssl_session_timeout 5m;
    
  • The forum pulls images for the theme from the main site, which doesn't use SSL.
  • Performance: A few things require changing the theme, but this configuration should help a bit:

    Code: Select all

    sendfile on;
    tcp_nopush on;
    tcp_nodelay on;
    
    gzip            on;
    gzip_vary       on;
    gzip_min_length 512;
    gzip_comp_level 4;
    gzip_disable    "msie6";
    gzip_proxied    any;
    gzip_types
    	application/xml
    	application/javascript
    	application/x-javascript
    	application/json
    	application/vnd.ms-fontobject
    	application/x-font-opentype
    	application/x-font-truetype
    	application/x-font-ttf
    	font/eot

    	image/svg+xml

    	text/css
    	text/javascript
    	text/xml;
    
    server {
    	location ~* \.(js|css|png|jpg|jpeg|gif|ico|ogg)$ { expires 1M; }
    }

I have this issue, I have seen it a total of 2 times, always related to Hybrid Dog's signature. I can keep reading all of the stuff, but when this happends the topic page gets a little messed up.
Topics I've found it on:
viewtopic.php?f=17&t=12039&start=25
And some other topic. I don't remember now. Will update if I remember where.

Apparently I am not privileged enough to view the phpBB FAQ (link below the search box), since I get HTTP error 403 when trying to view it. :D

Also, the link “BBCode” next to the text field when you writing a new post gives me only a 403 error.

Here are the broken links:

Now faq.php doesn't result in 403.

I also moved the background image and favicon from the main site into the forum theme. (the main site didn't even have them anymore after it was moved to github pages.)

Could you add a setting to increase the default text size?

this also increases the frame where the text is put in and so less is shown on my screen

If you use the default phpBB style there is a option to change font size in the top right corner.

I don't know if this also exist in Minetest style.

I was wondering if the "view new posts" link could be added to all pages instead of just on board index. I use that link a lot.
Many of my mods are now a part of Minetest-mods. A place where you know they are maintained!

A list of my mods can be found here

I'll keep pushing this idea... ; )
I have used this in the past on 2 occasions with excellent experiences.

I consider it "THE" best forum software, and the support is tops
I really think, after the next release and people have more time (after some well deserved relaxation) I hope this could be looked at.

Discourse is too....., millennial : /
