Wow... TumeniNodes, you just described my whole Minetest career. This is probably one of the most true names I've heard yet.

Wasn’t there consensus about not using any names containing the words „test“, „mine“, „block“ (and variants and synonyms) and names of any nodes or items from Minetest Game? :)

Oh, btw. I like “ROAM” too bad it’s not googleable and is taken already.

It would be nice developers claim officially if they ever have a plan to change the name of the game/engine.
Until then all this fuss here is meaningless.

"Minetest" is a fine name for the engine. The game could usae renaming;"minetest_game" is kinda crappy, though. Something like "Test of the Miners" or somesuch would make it sound a lot less generic.

Trademark?

by Wuzzy » Post

Minetest may be legally forced to be renamed in the near future.
OldCoder is planning to acquire the trademark “Minetest” in >= 4 countries (Australia is one of them).
