Mod suggestion Play database

by chrisjose1913 » Post

Hello Since joining minetest and also running a server, i have noticed a major flaw this game has. This relates to the client login system for server. The major issue is banning. even after banning a player they can easily return doing this is as simple as turning of your router and changing the IP and changing the player name. I have come up with an idea that will not prevent this completely but it will make it harder to do. So a player database would be a website player register on with a minetest login and password. this password and login name will be the same the use to login to servers running the player database mod. when a play connects the server will check against the players database if the login detail match an account on the database the player will be allowed in. if not well the player will not be allowed in. This system could also be used as a globe banning system server administrators will be notified when a specific player name has past bans. another feature in my idea will be to have player achievements logged on the database. Of ourse servers that do not run this mod players can join under the normal system used today I just thought i will post this perhaps to spark some brain waves out there.

The majority of devs, including c55 iirc, are opposed to having a centralised server like this.

This would be solved by having servers not give interact by default, and asking players to apply for interact in the forum.

Or having options to either ban by IP, or ban by Username (or both)

Well that's a shame, But as i suggested this would be an opt in system for server owners and perhaps even setup as a third party website that the mod links to.

I like that mod but I think that not granting interact immediately would be a problem on less well-maintained servers. I know OldCoder does that though.
Merry Christmas Everyone!!!
