The Wikipedia moderators think Minetest is a copypaste of Minecraft, thus not deserving an article for itself.
Happy new Year 2020: let's all aim finally for a clear vision of what we want to make of Minetest!

Why about Minetest nor word in so Wikipedia? But instead that Minetest wiki exists separately.

Would likely be blocked again because it already was deleted before.

The official reason is that there are no “significant, reliable 3rd party sources”. In other words, mostly the maintream media, but the mainstream media doesn't give a shit about Minetest, which is something which is the case for many free software games (even the good ones). I don't know why this is the case, but it seems to be the sad reality.

But if giants like IGN, GameSpy, Gamasutra, Rock Paper Shotgun and the like (no matter how much you love or despise them) suddenly start to cover Minetest and there are maybe 10 articles or so, the people who proposed deletion will have much harder time defending their position.
