But not always.

When two negatives are used in one independent clause, [they] produce a weakened affirmative [...] in some dialects if a verb or adverb is in between two negatives then the latter negative is assumed to be intensifying the former[...]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_negative#English

Oh, thanks for the link... I missed those dialects where it's not wrong to use double (or more) negatives.

I grew up in languages* where double negatives will always become positive. Maybe I've carried away with the rules from those two languages. xD

*I'm talking about Malay and Chinese where I speak in everyday life and social media, as opposed to English where I only use to read textbooks or refference books (most of the teachers and lecturers explain stuffs in Malay even while using English books :P) or to interact with foreigners online like here, on forums (I've never met real life foreigner yet, the last time I speak English was during the speaking test of Malaysian University English Test, last year xD)

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

Same for me. My english is influenced by German grammer, too. I guess that normal.

Well, at least phpBB has a feature of "friends and foes". So good I have this useful feature. Especially the "foes" part.

I just realized the limit was 8 when I'm trying to add 2 more servers with links to their forums to my signature. I had to write their forum thread IDs as substitute.

When I play on any newer servers, I will also add them to signature, because where else I could mention the servers I played on if not on game forums itself, lol. No one really reads external website (except useful ones like krock-works mod search - http://krock-works.16mb.com/MTstuff/modSearch.php ) and these users will miss out servers I'm playing on.

You can do what I do, which is to have a link to my website, which has all the links I like! You can make a website for free on Github.

The post you quote is quite old, and I already have such website...

The "Full signature" link in my signature is the link to my website of full expanded signature with links to all servers I've played on. xD

The link is http://github.mnh48.com/signature/minetest.html if you're wondering.

I also planned to make such expanded signature for other forums too (I use many forums from game to language to anime to religion to shopping, not just use Minetest forum), and I planned for a homepage that lists out directory of signatures... :P

While my websites are mostly on Blogger and one test website on Hostinger Free, the signature itself is indeed on GitHub ( https://github.com/MuhdNurHidayat/MuhdN ... /signature ) as it's faster than Hostinger Free and simpler than Blogger.

Could you add it to your signature?

I think somebody should clean up all the outdated stuff in the WIP mods section...
Some of that stuff doesn't actually exist anymore, some is broken, some is just off topic and some is already implemented in the main game.
my mods and subgames (ง'̀-'́)ง
