2 possible solutions:

1. Did you unzip/extract the minetest zip (what you should do) or playing it directly from a zip (which can cause those problems)
2. Check if your minetest_game folder is in the minetest folder (same folder as where the minimal folder is), where it belongs.

Edit: more text.

Here's a list of servers with their links, so you can find out which version of minetest you need for a server (It's under servers, sticky, servers monitoring service):

http://servers.minetest.ru/

And here is a link that helps you find out where the servers are:

http://minetest.net/forum/viewtopic.php?id=3268

Edit:
Name is the ingame name you choose to use., password a password you make up
Adress is the IP adress or a (combination of) word(s) of the server (see under adress in the first link), port is the number, not always 30000

You tried my suggestions in post 2?

If they didn't work:
- what operating system do you use (Windows/Mac/Linux) and version/specification.
- Which minetest version (and serial number) are you using (for example 0.4.3, 25cf375)

Edit: typo

Also, your suggestions in Post 2 sadly have not worked for me :/

Maybe you should try to reinstall minetest. If you already didn't try, I can recommend Sfan5's build

Minetest.net, downloads, Sfan5's builds, the one with latest behind it's name I guess: http://sfan.sf.funpic.de/minetest-builds

I use Lubuntu, but understand from the forums that this a very good build.

Edit: driect download link: http://sfan.sf.funpic.de/minetest-builds/c55/minetest-0.4.3-25cf375-extrafilters_chkbox-win32.7z

mmm chek the minetest folders and find the worlds folder if it isn't is there create one
If you have any pending matters with me, I encourage you to contact me via e-mail or PM. I still lurk from the shadows and very much care about the Minetest project. Sadly I have not been involved for the past years but I still look back fondly on the time I spent in your company.
If you are checking my profile, it's probably because of something.

It's "Drag" for the friends.
