I'd be glad if the signatures where smaller or could be disabled in some way. The actual content of the messages is so often hidden behind all those other things the forum adds.

There is a way to hide the signature if you don't want to read them...
It's in User Control Panel > Board preferences > Edit display options > Display signatures ... turn it to "No" instead of "Yes"
or direct link: ucp.php?i=prefs&mode=view
[ Full signature ] - UTC+8 here, I'm muhdnurhidayat in most Minetest servers. / Twitter ✂️- - - - -

Also uses MT Offtopic forum.
You just read my profile, right?
Because these few texts of signature only appear on profile page as the texts are cut in signature. xD

Aaah! Thanks! That helps a lot. I'd still prefer them to be just smaller (there might be reasonable information in a signature), but it's definitely better to have no signatures than to not to be able to find the actual text of a posting due to excessive signatures.

Hello everyone. I hope this is the right place to address this.
The Minetest forum is the main platform for all things going on in the Minetest community. In the recent time, however, other platforms have or will become more important, such as the Content Database. Since M$ has bought Github, I run a private issue tracker for my mods at http://mantis.bleipb.de/. Also, I heard that some servers have or plan to implement some sort of authentication outside minetest, to prevent griefers from just changing their user name.

At the moment, the content database uses GitHub's oauth as an alternative to manual sign-up. At my bug tracker, you need to sign up manually, same goes for those external auth servers.

Since almost every member of the community has an account here on the forum, it would be convenient if the forum would provide an OAuth API or something similar, so that players do not have to re-register on all relevant platforms.

Does PHPBB support this out of the box, or would it be needed to implement it? If so, I have some knowledge in PHP programming and could try to do this.
What do you think? Is an OAuth API for the forum useful, and do you think we should add it?

I investigated this before starting CDB. There aren't any oauth provider plugins for phpbb and it's not a feature it has builtin in. It would definitely be useful for cdb though. It shouldn't be too hard to do (right?). Just make sure you require a client id and secret, and only expose the username. Maybe also require users to click yes to approve the login, I guess that could depend on the client

Seriously, isn’t it time we found a new forum software instead. The modern platforms all have decent plugin systems, in which an OAuth service plugin either already exists or is more easily implemented.

But that is nothing I can decide. Is a forum software switch foreseeable in the near future?
EDIT: reading more about the topic, since we do not need to access any API on the minetest forum side, it is sufficient to use OpenID instead of OAuth.

In the User Control Panel the section "Edit Profile" allows adding a GitHub name that will be linked in the profile and as post metadata. Since GitHub was purchased by Microsoft a lot of people left GitHub.

It would be a good idea to change "GitHub" to a more generic thing like "Git" or "Coding" and allow pasting an URL there. Or implement a drop-down of top 10 relevant Git hosting providers users can select and enter their user name.

The "Unsubsribe" feature doesn't seem to work. I unsubscribed to a few topics and they still show up in "View my posts" page.

The "View Your Posts" page doesn't show topics to which you have subscribed.
It shows topic in which you have commented.
If you want to turn off subscriptions, go to User Control Panel and then, under the Overview tab click on Manage Subscriptions in the left column.

Ah, I can understand the difference now. I guess I just want to somehow remove topics from the "View my posts" page. Is that currently possible? At least, I shouldn't be notified of new posts in certain topics. Mobs Redo and Xanadu are classic examples of topics I want to "unsubscribe" from. I made a couple of posts in both the topics, and I'm notified of new posts in them ever since.

Hello, I like to report an issue with the forum.

It seems that long URLs no longer get automatically transformed into clickable links. Instead, they get truncated with “…” and can't be clicked. If I recall correctly, it worked before.

Example: I will enter the following text:

Code: Select all

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2020/01/31/uk_address_bulgarians/
But it turns into this:
https://www.theregister.co.uk/2020/01/3 ... ulgarians/

The markdown format could be useful on the forum because I could copy-paste comments with links and pictures from github issues.
Typing an url would also be easier (I use the qwertz keyboard mapping).

Yes, Markdown plz! Markdown is the smartest way to write for the web:
  • It’s easy: the syntax is so simple you can barely call it “syntax.” If you can use an emoticon, you can write Markdown.
  • It’s fast: the simple formatting saves asignificant amount of time over hand-crafted HTML tags, and is often faster than using aword processor or WYSIWYG editor. It speeds up the workflows of writers of all ilk, from bloggers to novelists.
  • It’s clean: Markdown translates quickly to perfectly formed HTML: no missing closing tags, no improperly nested tags, no blocks left without containers. You also get 100% less cruft than exporting HTML from Microsoft Word. There’s no styling inline, nothing that will otherwise break asite’s design or mess with the XSLT formatting for PDF output. In short, it’s foolproof.
  • It’s portable: your documents are cross-platform by nature. You can edit them in any text-capable application on any operating system. Transporting files requires no zipping or archiving, and the filesize is as small as it can possibly get.
  • It’s flexible: output your documents to awide array of formats. Convert to HTML for posting on the web, rich text for sending emails or importing into alayout program for final arrangement or any number of other proprietary formats.
  • It fits any workflow: You can make Markdown work with any workflow. It can speed up just about any writing-related process with very little setup. It can also be scripted all to hell, if you want, because plain text is the most flexible of any format known to computer-kind.
