Changing the name now seems like a loss of momentum. I think a tagline could be cool... Minetest <insert tagline> but I think that diminishes what Minetest really is - and thats a beautifully stripped down voxel engine waiting for great mods to be selected. I don't think beginners realize what the engine really is.

Maybe a new name could come through a truly inspired 'game' included with the engine that embodies the ultimate 'commercial' version of Minecraft we can have, as that is the experience most beginners are looking to emulate?

Just my two cents - ya all rock no matter what's decided!
everything can be a learning experience...

This sounds like name of one prohibited nazi book.

This is one more reason I hate the name "Minetest"!!! I did not say about it earlier. But this sound always reminds me of Hitler.

Exploronauts? Too long. Then just Explorer would be better. Don't care what Microsoft would say.

Anyway Minetest is SHITTY name.

If Minetest becomes an engine and the subgames become the "games", there will be LOTS of new voxel games XD.

Did you hear the news? The NyanCat is back as (default I think).That alone tells me it is VERY popular.

If I ever run another server I should name it Mine Camp.

Nooooooo, the test part is the bad part of the name. It has bad connotations, ie: it's a small project by a novice dev that isn't original or polished.

Don't take it seriously. For your sake.
