00:00 Sokomine what'd help me would be a way to read the palette data from lua. short of including a lib for png support i see no way to do that :-(
00:00 Fixer Sokomine: 16 probably enough
00:00 Fixer "Fixed infinite loop in Windows GUI when selecting File->Exit."
00:01 Sokomine sounds reasonable, yes. servers might want anything between 8 and 256
00:02 Shara Pretty sure if I suggested reducing number of coloured nodes available, my players wuld lynch me.
00:02 Fixer Sokomine: making it customisable between 8-256 - even better, with some sane defaults
00:02 Sokomine shara: :-) especially if they used the colors already
00:03 Shara I literally have hundreds of different colours. And somehow, yes they do use them
00:04 Fixer PCEM v13 will gonna be BIG
00:04 Fixer B I G
00:08 Fixer Sokomine: i don't remember such colouring functionality in saw, is this a new feature?
00:09 Fixer anyway good night for all, answer me here, i will read irc log anyway

04:00 Natechip https://stolven11.github.io/minetest/p1
04:18 unk Natechip, thanks...I have been using Manjaro on the desktop for 2 years now...been using the i3 tiling window manager as well...was curious how to install on arch-based systems...thanks for posting.
04:27 Natechip unk: np, that will only work for the dev versions

15:47 IhrFussel My bug report is 4 days old now and no core dev was able to simply copy&paste the test code into any 0.4.16+ init.lua to confirm it??
16:52 Fixer IhrFussel: pffffff, FOUR DAYS OLD, if it was like FOUR years old, then I would really be alarmed
16:53 Krock Fixer, you might want to start being alarmed about #34, from 2011
16:53 Fixer alarm
16:53 rubenwardy https://github.com/minetest/minetest/issues/34
16:53 IhrFussel Fixer, The older an issue gets WITHOUT even being "confirmed" the less likely it will ever get confirmed
16:53 red-001 !title
16:53 ShadowBot Feature request: reload config files when SIGHUPped. · Issue #34 · minetest/minetest · GitHub
16:54 IhrFussel I want my bug report to at least be confirmed so that devs recognize it as something to fix
16:54 red-001 Krock, well can you confirm 34?
16:54 rubenwardy first bug request: https://github.com/minetest/minetest/issues/95
16:54 rubenwardy *report
16:54 IhrFussel The "unconfirmed bug" label tells me "you are talking shit my friend"
16:54 Fixer alarming
16:56 Krock red-001, actually I never heard of that term (SIGHUP) before
16:56 IhrFussel My bug report affects LOTS of different mods so that should be a high priority... I'd imagine many servers run with profiler enabled for extended times and it's just stupid that the HP modifier breaks then
16:57 IhrFussel Every time I enable the profiler I HAVE TO disable damage or else my players lose EXP since they don't have 300+ HP but 20 instead which would mean monsters would kill them in an instant = not fair
16:58 rubenwardy please stop using caps like that, it's incredibly annoying
16:58 rubenwardy fwiw, I'm building MT now to test that init.lua
16:58 IhrFussel That's my way of expressing certain words more than the rest
16:58 rubenwardy doesn't make it less annoying
16:58 Krock we could give you a patch to remove the profiling from that function, not sure if it's exactly what you want
16:59 Krock rubenwardy, at least it's not all-caps :P
17:00 rubenwardy profiler shouldn't affect functionality, just inject a timer
17:00 rubenwardy I reckon it's not passing back the number probably
17:00 IhrFussel The patch is not enough, I want this to be fixed in 0.5.0 which is why I reported it ... like I said it also affects 3d_armor and every other mod that relies on that callback and wants to modify the hp_change value
17:00 rubenwardy as most other mods only do true/false
17:01 rubenwardy will you be changing to health_max after 0.5?
17:01 IhrFussel But set_hp() also calls the callback with a number and not true or false
17:01 rubenwardy is there anything else different about the health system?
17:04 IhrFussel When I switch to 0.5.0 someday I will likely switch to the new settable HP property but it still affects several other mods with profiler enabled and since it's a bug it should get fixed
17:04 rubenwardy confirmed :P
17:06 neinwhal joined #minetest-hub
17:10 Krock I suppose instrument_register() in profiler/ doesn't handle the multiple return values correctly
17:10 rubenwardy fodun the bug
17:10 rubenwardy preparing PR
17:10 rubenwardy ah, you found it too
17:12 rubenwardy https://github.com/minetest/minetest/pull/6531
17:14 rubenwardy is that what you found too, Krock ?
17:15 Fixer aaaayayyyyy, networking in pcem
17:15 Fixer compile success
17:15 rubenwardy ?
17:16 Krock rubenwardy, was in the same area but didn't notice this parenthese issue
17:17 rubenwardy ah ok. I feel less bad about making the PR first then :)
17:17 Krock struggled while trying to understand where "instrument" comes from and what this function actually does
17:17 rubenwardy it applies a timer to the callback function
17:18 rubenwardy so instead of the callback in the registered table, it's a function which sets up a timer then calls the callback
17:18 Krock ah okay. Good to know
17:18 Natechip Krock: i gave up windows compiling :P
17:19 * Krock puts Natechip on a overflowing stack of other users
17:19 Natechip Krock: just did it on manjaro (arch based_
17:19 Natechip )*
17:20 Natechip and little did ik that there wasnt a way to -_-
17:20 Natechip sooo I had to find packages myself :O
17:23 shivajiva lol, that is the way to do it on Manjero, so many changes means you have to track down the packages, you got it compiled though?
17:24 Krock rubenwardy, if it works as expected, feel free to merge it in the next time. It's just a trivial bugfix
17:26 Natechip shivajiva: you bet your bottom biscuit i did :D
17:26 ThomasMonroe joined #minetest-hub
17:27 red-001 wb thomas
17:27 ThomasMonroe thx
17:36 rubenwardy hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com
17:36 Calinou evening :)
17:36 Calinou I revised my Godot CI build scripts: https://github.com/Calinou/godot-builds
17:37 Calinou (they're in testing right now)
17:37 Calinou Batch can be pretty crazy :P https://github.com/Calinou/godot-buil​ds/blob/master/.appveyor.yml#L37-L41
17:39 rubenwardy ew
17:42 ThomasMonroe Calinou what username do you have on lichess?
17:44 Calinou https://lichess.org/@/Calinou
17:45 Calinou I don't play often, lately
17:48 ThomasMonroe ah ok thx
17:49 ThomasMonroe i just got started, only played 6 rated games and am already down to "1106?"
17:49 Calinou you still can add me :)
17:49 Calinou the "?" means it's a provisional rating, it means Lichess isn't confident in the rating it's giving, because you didn't play a lot of rated games
17:49 Calinou I'm at a low rating as well :P
17:50 red-001 Thomas-S, thats quite some uptime you got
17:52 ThomasMonroe :P
17:55 red-001 I think the code is a bit outdated through
17:55 red-001 left #minetest-hub
17:55 red-001 joined #minetest-hub
17:57 red-001 so you might want to update it
18:08 rubenwardy is there a rosseta code for common server rules and warnings? Eg: don't spam, stop swearing, etc
18:08 rubenwardy *stone
18:09 red-001 don't think so
18:09 Calinou like this? https://xkcd.com/1820/ :P
18:10 Krock brb. printing and storing a SSL certificate
18:10 rubenwardy no, translations
18:10 rubenwardy I want "don't spam" etc for all major languages
18:10 Calinou oh
18:10 Calinou I remember Xanadu's "Ne pas jurer, detruire et relations amoureuses" :D
18:11 Calinou (machine French translation of "Don't swear, grief or date players"
18:11 red-001 in fairness not clicking links would solve a lot of issues
18:11 Fixer xanadu's rules are meaningless more or less
18:11 rubenwardy that server gives me a bad feeling for some reason. May just be all the forum gossip about moderation
18:12 Fixer best option here is not talk to anything on that server, or admin gets offended and bans
18:12 Fixer admin on his period
18:12 Fixer feel
18:14 Krock "shit" -> instaban?
18:14 Fixer Krock: no, ban in very unexpected ways, that I discovered
18:15 Fixer also, his remarks about players like "Who is this asshole" tells a lot
18:16 Fixer there was one more case with another guy
18:16 Fixer it was like REPLANT OR DIEEEEEEEEEEEEE x 100 times
18:17 Fixer replant or kick*
18:17 Fixer whole arguing was funny
18:17 Calinou moderating a large game server is very tiring
18:17 Fixer server itself is nice, but owner and stuff is very cancerous
18:17 Calinou it's not like a website or a forum
18:18 Fixer I kinda expect civility at least from admins
18:18 Fixer and owner feels like abusive kid

18:37 Fixer red-001: "nice shtoyle" (c)
18:38 IhrFussel Fixer, I heard they banned someone because he helped a "bad player" on another server
18:39 IhrFussel And that they often punish players for rules that do not even exist ... you can only punish players for breaking rules and you cannot make up rules the moment the player does something you don't like... that is my opinion and I think it's the general way admins do it
18:41 IhrFussel You CAN add to the rules later BUT it is completely wrong to punish players afterwards
18:42 IhrFussel For example a player built something nazi-related on my server ... I then forbid it in the rules but I didn't punish the player for it cause it was before my new rule existed
18:48 IhrFussel AFAIK that's also how ToS are done...nobody can punish you for something that's not part of the ToS
18:51 IhrFussel rubenwardy, thanks for the PR by the way... I didn't try to have it fixed right away but that's even better than my original request
18:56 red-001 well most ToS include catch all phrases that let the service operators to retroactivly change the rules and in general act at thier discretion
18:57 paramat joined #minetest-hub
18:59 IhrFussel red-001, that makes no sense still...how can you punish someone for something nobody knew would be not allowed someday in the future?
19:00 Fixer IhrFussel: cases I seen were simple, admin/owner random abuse
19:00 red-001 I don't agree with it
19:00 red-001 but thats how companies tend to do it
19:01 IhrFussel Like if someone used swear words a lot and now I add a "no swearing" rule...which asshole would seriously go back in the chat log and punish all of those players? That sounds unbelievable
19:03 paramat IhrFussel i can see you're improving, but i agree with ruben-wardy that capitalising certain words is irritating :]
19:04 Fixer oh you are all so sensitive
19:04 red-001 ^
19:04 Fixer it is not today chat is full of caps, s p a c i n g and vaporwave
19:04 red-001 well companies tend to add it to thier ToS if someone finds a way to abuse thier service that they didn't think of so they can deal with it
19:04 red-001 s/if/in case
19:06 IhrFussel red-001, but how can it be legally fine to punish people backdated?
19:06 red-001 don't ask me I'm not a lawyer
19:15 Krock joined #minetest-hub
19:28 twoelk joined #minetest-hub
19:37 IhrFussel "you were banned cause we admins have our reasons" is the stupidest reason I've ever read
19:38 IhrFussel That seems to be the no.1 line banned players get on servers if the staff actually had *no* reason
19:50 Shara I dare say there's certain things I'd ban a player for even if I don't have an explicit rule in advance
19:50 Shara But that's because people have an amazing capacity to think up new ways of being rotten
19:51 Shara It certainly wouldn't be "because I happen to feel like it"
19:58 Fixer it would in xanadu case
19:59 Shara I've had players who intentionally try to "just" avoid breaking my rules while being as abusive to other people as they possibly can
20:00 rubenwardy CTF technically doesn't have any rules yet
20:00 rubenwardy as I lost the rules mod
20:01 rubenwardy but I'll still ban for cheat clients, as that's implicitly not allowed
20:01 IhrFussel Shara, the point is you cannot punish people for something only you find wrong in your mind...you have to write it down somewhere
20:02 Shara Fussel, I'm all for fairness, which you know.
20:02 Shara But what actually stops me?
20:02 IhrFussel What stops people from killing other people?
20:03 IhrFussel Just because you can do something doesn't mean it's fine
20:03 rubenwardy the law?
20:03 Shara If someone does something that is clearly inappropriate or cruel on my servers, and that is clearly done with malicious intent, but I just haven't managed to capture it within my rules, why should I be compelled to let them repeat it again?
20:04 IhrFussel Even in countries where no laws exist it would not be fine to kill people...way too many admins feel like gods which is big part of the reason I created my own server
20:05 Shara Oddly enough I made my own precisely because the owner of a server I played on called himself "god" and tried to act like one :)
20:05 IhrFussel I feel like a regular player on my server...I only add rules that I can follow...yes the admin has to follow the same rules as the players IMO
20:05 Shara But you can't compare actual murder to banning a malicious player on an MT server.
20:05 Shara I agree with you that banning just because you can is terrible. But admins who play it that way won't build a decent community of players.
20:07 IhrFussel If the admin cannot think of enough situations that might be bad when players exploit them, then their rules are flawed
20:07 Calinou <IhrFussel> That seems to be the no.1 line banned players get on servers if the staff actually had *no* reason
20:07 Calinou "for no reason"
20:07 Calinou https://media.hugo.pro/liek_muted.png
20:07 Calinou :P
20:08 IhrFussel Calinou, no.1 reason line* ... banning just for fun or because you think you can is the worst, that's true
20:09 Shara Way I see it, if someone is genuinely creating a problem, whether rules cover it or not, I have a duty to the other players on the server to handle it. If I honetly believe a ban is the only way to do that, I will ban.
20:10 Shara It's never without consideration.
20:11 red-001 we went over this already
20:12 Raven262 [offtopic] Calinou, what has the doom gotten to: https://i.imgur.com/oG88dhU.png
20:12 Shara Sorry red, but it's what I walked in seeing, so I'll comment.
20:12 IhrFussel That's still not fair to the player, cause they had absolutely no way to know that they wouldn't be allowed to do that... if the ban is just a temp ban then it's tolerable though
20:12 Calinou Raven262: I like how indies make games less detailed than 90s games
20:12 Calinou some of them seriously believe it saves up on the GPU
20:12 IhrFussel But banning someone FOREVER for something they couldn't have known is wrong in every way
20:13 Calinou Raven262: do you want to play some Freedoom coop, by the way?
20:13 paramat Shara is right, you can never predict what rules will be needed and specified
20:13 Shara Fussel, abusive behaviour is always wrong.
20:14 paramat as long as there is a good reason, stated in rules or not makes no difference
20:14 Raven262 Calinou, not this evening, i'm rather tired, sorry.
20:14 Shara I don't need a "don't shoplift" sign in a store to know it's not a nice thing to do, or expect people to wear "please don't punch me" badges.
20:14 IhrFussel paramat, still: banning someone forever is wrong...you should ban them for some time and apply that rule to the rules in the meantime
20:14 paramat forever might be justified occasionally
20:15 IhrFussel You usually use more general terms to keep the rules short... like "respect each other" includes a lot already
20:16 Shara Fussel, yet plenty will say they didn't understand that to mean whatever thing they did anyway
20:17 IhrFussel To ban someone forever could be justified if the action the player did was something you could explain with *common sense*
20:17 Shara You just made my own case for me then :)
20:17 Calinou Raven262: it's ok :)
20:18 IhrFussel But if the admin thinks a player who critized the server needs to be banned even though there was no rules that forbids it (extreme case) I find it wrong to ban
20:19 IhrFussel To be able to critize is common sense I'd say
20:19 rubenwardy that is wrong
20:30 IhrFussel Critique is allowed in almost every modern country ... you shouldn't expect from the people that they would know that it's not allowed on your server...and in general a server with such a rule is a dictatorship in my eyes
20:32 Calinou players clearly viewed as abusive by the majority also ought to get the boot
20:32 Calinou and, griefers or immature players are not very popular on most servers :)
20:33 ssieb joined #minetest-hub
20:34 paramat servers are a benign dictatorship and have to be. polite and reasonable criticism from a player is of course fine
20:35 IhrFussel Critique is by definition polite...everything else is discrimination/insulting, that's how I learned it
20:37 IhrFussel Of course I don't expect you to tolerate players saying "meh this server is really crappy" that is not critique
20:39 IhrFussel Also if my server must be a "dictatorship" then it's a reasonable one where every player keeps their basic rights and nobody is treated in an unfair way
20:39 nerzhul joined #minetest-hub
20:41 red-001 nerzhul, how are channels meant to be used?
20:41 nerzhul hello
20:41 red-001 most packets use channel 0
20:41 nerzhul oh you talk about UDP MT protocol
20:41 nerzhul i don't know it's sapier code
20:41 red-001 oh ok
20:42 red-001 I will just copy what other packets do then
20:42 nerzhul and i rewrote network in the new code no channel, because not needed
20:42 nerzhul red-001, what do you try to implement ?
20:42 nerzhul if i'm correct channel is more related to reliability
20:42 red-001 just a simple packet with server info for the pause menu
20:43 red-001 part of https://github.com/minetest/minetest/pull/6528
20:43 nerzhul oh nice
20:44 red-001 will also allow for more information about remoute server to be displayed
20:46 red-001 I planning to reimplement my on join/leave player CSM callback
20:46 red-001 since we are breaking network compatibily I wouldn't have to deal with servers that don't send accurate player list information

21:14 benrob0329 Oh, and just so everyone knows I am back from vacation, with some video ideas and a new camera :PP
21:21 Sokomine fixer: the saw is just learning to do hardware coloring. most of the remaining trouble comes from translating the 256 color palette the full block may have to some(?) other palettes diffrent (colored) versions of the saw nodes may have
21:21 Sokomine fixer: 13:47 is music sorting time? :-)
21:22 Fixer Sokomine: and it was fail
21:31 Sokomine regarding xanandu: most of the time it's no problem at all to play there. the moderators and players are friendly. and yes...the rules and their interpretations don't exactly match what i'd consider...desirable. so..build, enable save to localmap, and it won't matter too much (the next map reset will happen sooner or later anyway...)
21:33 Sokomine maybe you ought to think less about punishing players for something. and yes, there may be situations where the rules don't cover the situation. most server admins act sensible and find a good solution in such a case
21:34 CalebDavis joined #minetest-hub
21:35 Sokomine shara: *g* yes. that's a problem. some players may be very creative. too strict adherence to rules might give them freedom to do really unwanted things. the rules are after all more guidelines than a set of laws covering all situations
21:38 Sokomine IhrFussel: that's less of a problem. shara and admins like her would talk to the player, and if it's a misunderstanding, a ban would really be very unlikely
21:40 IhrFussel Sokomine, I just responded to the xanadu forum thread where someone apparently has been banned for helping a banned player on another server... And this ban is FINAL ... I was rather talking about such stupid bans
21:41 IhrFussel To ban the friend of a banned players just for the sake of him being the banned player's friend is ridiculous
21:42 Shara From my experiences, when something like that happens, there's usually a lot more going on in the background
21:42 IhrFussel And xanadu's admin came to my server earlier responding to my forum thread's post
21:42 Shara Which admin? Xanadu has two.
21:42 IhrFussel Instead of answering in the forum topic
21:42 IhrFussel Shinji_Ikari the one who controls everything
21:43 Sokomine IhrFussel: ah. i didn't have time to catch up on the forum yet. but what you describe doesn't sound entirely unprecedented
21:44 Shara Fussel, really? You're telling a server owner they don't have the right to ban someone from their server?
21:44 Shara And you expect a favourable response from them?
21:44 IhrFussel Shara, I didn't tell them to stop, I gave them my 2 cents which means "in my opinion the way you act a staff is completely wrong"
21:44 Sokomine talk to tenplus1 if you want to talk about xanandu. he's usually here and no problem to talk to him :-)
21:45 IhrFussel If they don't care about me seeing their behavior as "bad staff" then they could just ignore my post...but I have the right to express my opinion about their capabilities of managing a server
21:46 Shara Still, dropping that in public isn't exactly a nice thing to do either.
21:46 Shara And you do realise the player's you are defending seem to have made problems in a lot of places.
21:47 IhrFussel And I had many players who "fled" from the server, so I don't make that stuff up
21:47 red-001 and we are back to this
21:47 Shara I don't always agree with what Shinji says or does either, but it's his server. :)
21:47 Sokomine red: sorry :-( just read the log and replied
21:48 IhrFussel One of my moderators is an ex-moderator on xanadu and she also confirmed to me what other players have told me before
21:48 Sokomine exactly. shara has it right
21:48 red-001 we will need #minetest-bad-admins at this rate
21:48 Krock I'm there! >:D
21:48 Shara red-001: you're welcome not to read.
21:48 Sokomine no, sorry, krock, you don't qualify :-)
21:48 Shara Hehe
21:48 * Krock leaves that channel again :'(
21:49 red-001 well now I own the channel
21:49 * red-001 parts
21:49 Krock congratulations, I guess?
21:49 Sokomine maybe...we could put maikaumine in :) he creates intresting servers - and then refuses to add rules to them :-) no protection :-(( (just joking :))
21:49 red-001 huh can you force irc clients to join a channel?
21:49 rubenwardy red-001, I turned off my server for a year and a half.  Do I account?
21:49 rubenwardy *count
21:49 Krock red-001, only the network can
21:49 red-001 sure all are welcome
21:50 red-001 * by all I mean bad admins
21:50 IhrFussel I'm not here to complain about bad admins... I just support human rights and fairness on all levels and I tell my opinion when I see something that is not fair on both sides
21:50 Sokomine rubenwardy: depends. too many do that. on the other hand..players have no right to request a server to stay up, so...i'm afraid you don't qualify. sorry :-)
21:51 Shara Well, after your comments Fussel, I don't even know if I can or can't join bad-admins :(
21:51 rubenwardy :'(
21:51 Sokomine maybe red can write a bot that maintains the channel. a bot can surely act as a bad admin and ban every player who joins a server
21:51 rubenwardy the best thing about CTF is apart from rankings, there's nothing really to keep up
21:51 red-001 Sokomine, lets make chanserv a bad admin
21:51 red-001 /ban *
21:51 Shara (other than my still failing attempts to get good screenshots!)
21:52 red-001 Shara, make the client spam screenshots
21:52 Sokomine red: poor chanserv :-) hasn'd done anything bad either
21:52 Shara rubenwardy: why don't you have players who actually fight!? :(
21:52 red-001 pros: one of them must be good
21:52 red-001 cons: you need to by a few more 5tb harddrives
21:52 Shara No, impossible to get nice screenshots of multiple players fighting at once when they don't fight...
21:52 red-001 s/by/buy
21:53 Sokomine ctf?
21:53 Shara capture the flag
21:53 Sokomine ah
21:53 Krock Call The Firemen
21:53 rubenwardy Sokomine, https://forum.minetest.net/vi​ewtopic.php?f=10&amp;t=13157
21:53 rubenwardy also, those are very old screenshots
21:54 rubenwardy the old map
21:54 Krock good old guests
21:54 IhrFussel I'm not against creating rules on servers that seem "silly" to many... I simply find it wrong to treat players who probably put a lot of effort into your service, like that ... and if you deeply think about it you'd agree
21:56 red-001 :( seems that their is no-one willing to work on CSM for 0.5
21:56 IhrFussel Sometimes admins don't understand what a permanent ban means for the player: They lose EVERYTHING on that server ... so the reason to ban them should be a *good* one
21:56 Sokomine rubenwardy: ah. that kind of game doesn't really match my intrests. but i'm sure many younger players like such games
21:56 Shara Fussel, maybe consider that admins just might be taking that into consideration before they ban?
21:56 rubenwardy the best players are ~19-22
21:57 rubenwardy a few of those
21:57 IhrFussel Shara, I don't believe that they do or else they wouldn't ban for smaller issues let alone things that weren't even part of the rules
21:57 Shara Okay, well I guess we established that you believe I'm a ban admin then. So be it.
21:58 Shara bad*
21:58 IhrFussel There are other ways to punish players...*without* taking their account...and my server shows such another way
21:58 Shara bad-banning*?
21:58 Sokomine rubenwardy: as i said...young :)
21:59 IhrFussel Shara, you don't fully understand my intentions: I doubt that you would ban a player forever over something like "he's a friend of a banned player"
21:59 Shara I understand quite well.
21:59 Sokomine hm, you could also run one of those autoban-bots that look for forbidden words and ban based on that. that'd be a good qualification for bad/incapable/inexperienced admin
21:59 Shara You seem to have an issue with this specific ban on one specific server, but are making it a much mor general issue.
22:00 Shara I agree bans should be made with consideration, but I disagree with you completely that a ban can only be made with a specific rule.
22:00 shivajiva hmm we use those to kick players not ban them usually
22:00 Sokomine hm, yes, ihrfussel seems to want to take freedom further, while shara takes a more practical approach. it's unlikely that players would have serious problems on either server without seriously and purposefully misbehaving
22:00 Shara And now I'm going back to taking screenshots.
22:01 Sokomine :-) screenshots of what?
22:01 Shara CTF :)
22:01 Shara And maybe some other things.
22:01 Sokomine ah. hm. doesn't sound like a building-orientated server to me? actual...fighting...
22:01 * Sokomine runs away
22:02 rubenwardy Sokomine, it's supposed to be focused on base defence and offense
22:02 rubenwardy so building walls and castles, and defending and assulting
22:02 rubenwardy however players don't defend at all, they just walk cluelessly around
22:03 rubenwardy and so players can just quickly dig in, grab flag, run out
22:04 shivajiva if a player runs the risk of losing everything, you'd think they would behave on a server but that doesn't seem to be the case, players that value what they have make good candidates for helpers and the divide starts to form.
22:05 IhrFussel shivajiva, but would you ban a player for something they did and it was never stated? How can server owners say it's OK to punish someone for something they had no way of knowing about
22:06 Sokomine rubenwardy: my castles take way too much time, and griefers would not be welcomed at all
22:06 rubenwardy well, functional keeps not decorative
22:06 Shara Fussel... there are certain things that it's just universally bad to do regardless of whether rules say. You seem to be missing this point.
22:06 rubenwardy I quite like how making them functional for defence causes different designs and strategies
22:07 Sokomine mine are decorative :-) they just pretend to be functional :-)
22:07 rubenwardy but yeah, no everyone's cup of tea
22:07 rubenwardy I'm building one on RC atm
22:07 Sokomine that's right. and it's good that such a server exists
22:07 rubenwardy trying to make it realisticly defender
22:08 shivajiva then we have the players that pretend to be reasonable to see if they can get a position of power and turn into trolls when refused. Banning people for no reason isn't acceptable either, I have only met one such server owner who wasn't a child and they don't hang round MT any longer
22:08 Sokomine that sounds good, rubenwardy. do you have a screenshot?
22:08 IhrFussel Shara, that still doesn't mean banning forever is good in that case...you should either warn them or temp ban ... you *should* give them the chance to behave better AFTER they've been told that it's wrong on the server
22:10 shivajiva there are a few people that retained permanent bans on my server, OnceOver, heyheyhey and a few other people but for very good reasons
22:11 shivajiva if I come hacking on your server will you give me a second chance fussel?
22:11 benrob0329 I would say it depends on the hack, and the purpose of it
22:11 shivajiva the second time I might decide to wipe your world
22:12 benrob0329 If its meant to educate devs and server owners, I would be less inclined to ban someone for that
22:12 IhrFussel On my server the rules are what's to follow ... if there is something that's not in the rules and a player exploits that oppurtunity then it's my job as admin to update the rules and close that "hole"
22:12 Shara Also, give how often xban.db used to corrupt, banning forever has never really been a thing before now :)
22:12 Shara given*
22:12 shivajiva hackers are never wanted in a game
22:12 benrob0329 If its just to cheat, the chances are higher that it'll be a ban, even a permaban
22:13 shivajiva if I fill your spawn with lava do I get a second chance? Do yo have a specific rule for that?
22:14 shivajiva if I find a way to crash your server will I be welcomed back to do it daily
22:15 shivajiva 18 months I had that behaviour regularly
22:15 shivajiva talk to shinji about her players and experiences
22:15 LazyJ To each server, their own. There are more than enough servers for banned players and disenfranchised players to go to find one that is more accommodating to them. Players banned from one server means more players for another server (and higher ranking on the MT Servers list).
22:16 shivajiva there is a reason xanadu is like fort knox
22:18 shivajiva we all learn in our own way IhrFussel but it's shades of grey not black and white
22:18 paramat IhrFussel , angelo has been extremely irritating in that thread, spamming arguments since May, which led to an admin stating 'we have our reasons' out of exhaustion. just from angelo's behaviour in the thread it seems very likely he deserves a ban and i expect he was given a good reason, but pretends he wasn't
22:18 rubenwardy I'd welcome people to crash my server - as long as it's a CTF bug
22:19 shivajiva angelo is an idiot, confirmed and one of the players perma banned from my server
22:20 rubenwardy she private messaged me all of her so-called security team's passwords
22:20 IhrFussel paramat, I didn't talk about angelo...I was talking about someone else who is angelo's friend and got banned now too for *helping* angelo on another server
22:20 rubenwardy they were all exactly the same
22:20 Calinou rubenwardy: heh, trying to connect to the CTF server and it's full
22:20 rubenwardy and she was asking for a mod to stop their team from being able to change the passwords or have their privs taken
22:20 Calinou could I have a reserved slot, maybe? :P
22:20 rubenwardy "Calinou"?
22:20 rubenwardy sure
22:20 Calinou (although I didn't join it yet)
22:20 Calinou yeah
22:21 paramat IhrFussel i expect the person you are referring to is just as bad and the situation is the same
22:21 rubenwardy lol
22:21 rubenwardy <CTF_Bot> Player Calinou does not exist.
22:21 rubenwardy I'll kick some people
22:21 rubenwardy try in 10 seconds
22:21 shivajiva angelo_1123, geolocates to Ireland and is a pure troll, hijacked mcg's server for a while and causes mayhem where ever possible
22:22 Shara He appears to be associated with Faker as well.
22:23 paramat IhrFussel when an admin writes "we never ban for no reason" it's usually after a reason has been given but the player rants endlessly
22:23 Calinou rubenwardy: gah, too late
22:23 Calinou didn't try, it's full again :/
22:24 rubenwardy ah!
22:24 rubenwardy you can use setpassword to make an account
22:24 paramat which admin stated "we never ban for no reason" and where?
22:25 IhrFussel I can guarantee you that the person who got banned never behaved wrongly on xanadu (an ex-moderator confirmed to me that)
22:25 IhrFussel Many admins say such things I didn't point to a specific one
22:28 Shara Fussel, pretty sure if Ten said it there was a reason.
22:29 Sokomine rubenwardy: well, kicking players just to make room *might* qualify you for "bad admin" :-)
22:29 rubenwardy probably
22:29 Shara Na, he didn't kick me, so it's okay :)
22:29 red-001 well thats it Sokomine said off to #minetest-bad-admin with you
22:29 rubenwardy I did it then realised that I could just temporarily raise max-users
22:30 red-001 s/said/said it
22:30 IhrFussel Okay let's just end this argument: In case there is a real reason for banning him (angelo's friend) then it would've been better to tell him that reason ... and if there was no real reason I stand by my point that it was not fair to the player
22:30 Shara Hmm.. and suddenly I am kicked :D
22:30 Shara rubenwardy: bad-admin it is!
22:30 rubenwardy blame the robot
22:30 Shara But it's your robot!
22:30 paramat "Many admins say such things I didn't point to a specific one" in most cases they are right. instead of generalising the whole server and all admins focus your argument on the specific situation
22:30 Sokomine :-)
22:31 Shara I don't always make ban reasons public either.
22:31 Shara It's generally between me and the player
22:31 Shara Though it depends on circumstance.
22:32 Calinou https://lobste.rs/moderations /d
22:32 Calinou :D*
22:32 Calinou it's an Hacker News-like website
22:32 paramat generally, the admin are usually right and you will get a distorted account from the players involved
22:32 Calinou *all* moderation actions are public
22:33 paramat angelo's friend very probably was given a reason. a friend of angelo seems likely to be an annoying kid too
22:33 red-001 so who is angelo person?
22:33 red-001 I think I saw the name somewhere before
22:34 rubenwardy https://forum.minetest.net/search​.php?author_id=20413&amp;sr=posts
22:34 paramat your post in the thread seems directed at tensplus and the many justified times that "we never ban for no reason" was stated
22:34 rubenwardy she's the leader of Amarza, Minetest's biggest security group!
22:34 rubenwardy how do you *not* know her, red-001?
22:35 rubenwardy
22:35 red-001 must be poor networking on my part
22:35 rubenwardy something that's quite funny is that Jan this year she was asking for servers
22:35 rubenwardy but didn't get any offers
22:35 paramat wow that thread is amazing, i would have temp-banned most of these players from the forum by now =)
22:36 rubenwardy so made this "security group" to help people protect against hackers which they know so much about
22:36 red-001 can you link to her defcon/blackhack talks or is she too important for those?
22:36 rubenwardy or in other words, give her privs and let her take over
22:36 paramat ranting kids who can't type full words
22:37 red-001 these posts are painful to read
22:38 rubenwardy you should see the ones I've deleted
22:38 Shara I actually stopped reading the forums because I was so fed up of their posts.
22:39 paramat hehe yes i never read server threads
22:39 rubenwardy they're generally cancerous
22:40 red-001 see you are being bad admin again, trying to get me to read a memetic hazard
22:40 rubenwardy oh noes
22:41 red-001 well thanks for being good admin and getting rid of the worst ones
22:41 IhrFussel My post was *not* directed at tenplus1 or any other specific person...it was directed towards the general management of the server...that involves the staff members but also the atmosphere in general
22:42 IhrFussel I had at least 100 players on my server telling me about how "bad" xanadu was with banning them for silly reasons such as "name too similar to another"
22:42 Natechip joined #minetest-hub
22:43 Natechip joined #minetest-hub
22:43 paramat an angry player's account is likely to be highly distorted
22:43 Natechip lol what
22:43 rubenwardy Natechip, adding team speak
22:43 rubenwardy decided to make Minetest proprietary
22:44 Natechip rubenwardy cool
22:44 red-001 rubenwardy, can you move rendering to the server?
22:44 red-001 I'm tired of all these hackers
22:44 rubenwardy yeah, that would make cheating impossible!
22:44 rubenwardy just send raw keyboard and mouse input
22:44 Natechip unk did my compiling tutorial help?
22:45 red-001 oh and use jpeg for the video
22:45 red-001 no interframe conpression ofcourse that would damage the quality
22:49 unk Natechip, I am getting ready to try it now....been busy today:)
22:49 Natechip unk: cool :) just remember that specific one is for minetest-dev
22:50 unk will do
22:52 red-001 does yaourt not work on that arch clone?
22:56 Fixer finished more boxes
22:56 Fixer "As I've already mentioned no-one is banned without good cause" hahahah
22:57 Fixer ban because of stating developers are working on the problem is good cause ;)
23:00 Natechip red-001 it does. but some people don't use it. i didn't find anything with yaourt for minetest dev
23:00 sfan5 https://aur.archlinux.org/p​ackages/?O=0&amp;K=minetest ????
23:01 red-001 7 aur/minetest-git 20170621.1425c6def-1 (42) (0.20)
23:01 Fixer IhrFussel: you are acting waaay too much germanic in that thread, owner is pushy and pretty aggressive guy who can bun you simply if he does not like you, or you looked wrong way, it is useless to argue with him
23:01 red-001 there is even one for leveldb
23:04 Fixer oh, voxelands lives again
23:04 Fixer lots of activity 2 weeks ago
23:05 red-001 too bad we can't port any of thier work
23:05 red-001 their*
23:05 Fixer sfan5: thats the beauty of arch
23:05 Fixer I hope I spelled it right
23:05 Fixer you can find anything on AUR
23:06 Fixer i like manjaro way
23:06 Fixer simplifying arch but keeping its power
23:07 Fixer i'm not really sure if adding mods itself to distro repositories like debian is good idea, reason: years old mods
23:09 Fixer ttf-ms-fonts still popular
23:09 sfan5 ms fonts are a good idea for compatibility reasons
23:09 sfan5 lots of website layouts break if your fonts are not identical
23:11 IhrFussel Fixer, then I wonder how so "many" can support him
23:13 Fixer IhrFussel: it is kind of servers where you can be banned with and without much reason, only option is to find another server and enjoy it, i decided to post a warning for players in topic, even if players acts ok most of the time, there is still random possibilities
23:14 IhrFussel That sounds horrible to me...so players there are at constant risk of being banned for "acting wrong" in his eyes
23:15 Fixer IhrFussel: i know you already argued about that, but he thinks thats his server and he can do whatever he wants, your option is to find a more """stable""" server
23:16 Fixer there are plenty of calm servers where you can build and enjoy without much problems and even with nice admins
23:16 unk Natechip, the directions worked...have 5.0 installed in a virtual michine with ArchMerge...thanks for sharing the link.
23:17 Natechip unk: np
23:17 Natechip happy it worked :D
23:17 Natechip let me know if i need to edit the page
23:18 IhrFussel Fixer, well technically he is right but he shouldn't wonder why so many leave his server then (and I know a whole lot of players left the server already and found a better one)
23:18 Fixer IhrFussel: he then needs to be honest and post rule 0: you will be kicked/banned with or without reason depending on my mood (have fun!)
23:19 Fixer ... "thats my server - i do what i want"
23:21 IhrFussel I'm pretty sure many there just play cause they have their projects/friends there...and they just avoid a ban by shutting their mouth about him
23:21 Shara Discussions about admining approaches are one thing... but can we limit open criticism of specific servers while there isn't even anyone involved in running that server here to respond?
23:21 shivajiva ^
23:25 Megaf joined #minetest-hub
23:27 IhrFussel I would talk to him IF he had an IRC and/or a forum account...but he has neither he is only present on his server where he could simply ban any kind of critique
23:28 jas_ he's an op here
23:28 jas_ they run a tight ship over there at xanadu
23:28 IhrFussel Not tenplus1...I'm talking about Shinji_Ikari
23:28 jas_ i'm quite fond of it, though i've only played briefly -- still more than any other server
23:29 Fixer IhrFussel: enable local map saving ;)
23:29 Fixer IhrFussel: capture your builds and welcome to another server
23:30 IhrFussel I hope he will join my server again soon and stay a bit...he doesn't need to fear a ban cause I'm able to discuss/argue with any player if necessary
23:30 Calinou gtg, good night :)
23:30 jas_ rest well
23:30 Shara Good night Calinou
23:31 shivajiva IhrFussel: why do you assume male gender for Shinji? You should pop in and have a chat with them instead of shooting the breeze here about it =)
23:31 Fixer IhrFussel: it is also kinda sad they reset the map year ago or so
23:31 shivajiva night Cal
23:31 Fixer shivajiva: no need, find another server, problem solved
23:32 shivajiva plenty to go at
23:33 IhrFussel shivajiva, I already said that one of my moderators (MerleManga) was a moderator on xanadu until recently and she told me quite a bit about the "life on xanadu"
23:34 Fixer red-001: are you here?
23:34 Fixer i have excellent suggestion for a CSM mod
23:34 Fixer what if you can import/export schematics via CSM ingame?
23:35 Fixer for example, I have this nice base on one server but it is show downing or other reasons, so I select the area, CSM does it thing, on new server i set coordinates and it recreates entire build, ofc it will needs blocks supplied
23:36 Fixer show downing, wth
23:36 Fixer engrish
23:36 Fixer shut downing*
23:36 Fixer shut downs*
23:36 shivajiva lol
23:36 shivajiva come on Fixer
23:37 red-001 I think fixer segfaulted
23:37 Fixer no
23:37 Fixer red-001: tell me, is it possible ^^
23:38 rubenwardy https://i.rubenwardy.com/oOtt4TEvVO.png
23:38 shivajiva yay let's steal buildings from servers
23:38 red-001 well we have node getters
23:38 rubenwardy gitting god
23:38 rubenwardy *good
23:38 red-001 someone said that voxel maniple is insecure dunno about scheme
23:38 Fixer rubenwardy: with Duke Nukem Voice*
23:39 shivajiva any decent owner would allow players to ask for a schema of their builds
23:39 Fixer shivajiva: you can steal them anyway, but you need to rebuild it by hand :}
23:39 rubenwardy local map saving
23:39 shivajiva Ik  ;)
23:40 rubenwardy ah, can't upload to a server you don't control though
23:40 Fixer in what sense? not upload but build itself
23:41 Fixer by loading schem to client and getting real blocks from inventory and placing them on server
23:41 Fixer magic
23:41 shivajiva no but it's yours till you come across an owner willing to drop it in
23:41 Shara I've accepted schems from players before and loaded them into the server.
23:41 Fixer i like how maikerumine saved a lot of good builds from original just test server and put them on ESM, wonder if ESM is running again
23:41 Sokomine fixer: export - that would be useful. instead of using local mapsaving, loading the world and applying worldedit, using a csm would be very fine and helpful. import though...that's another matter. i don't think automatic building ought to be allowed as such. a way to upload schematics so that the server owner/moderators can decide might be ok
23:42 Shara Though I usually expect them to make sure the nodes fit what's on my server first
23:42 LazyJ Local save is one of the reasons why I only build nice stuff in my singleplayer world anymore.
23:42 Fixer anymore?
23:43 red-001 Sokomine, well I could allow getting a base64 encoded version a schematic
23:43 Sokomine fixer: i would consider such "magic" cheating in general. unless you've built the building by hand once. even then it might require mentionning on a sign or so
23:43 red-001 that a mod could save to modstorage
23:43 Fixer red-001: on the other hand this thing is dangerous
23:44 Fixer red-001: lets say you save smth like swastika and got stacks of cobble and just spam it everywhere with simple command
23:44 Fixer red-001: thats kinda bad
23:44 red-001 yeah I say it's better to just save the scheme
23:44 Fixer yeah
23:44 Fixer so i can put it in my worldedited flat world
23:44 red-001 and create a server mod fo accepting base64 encoded scheme
23:46 Sokomine fixer: in general those of us who value building would like to be sure that the building was built by whoever "owns" the land or is otherwise mentionned. claiming someone elses buildings as your own ones is...not so desirable. so, uploading a schematic ought to be the exception. there can be a way to do that, but actually placing it into the world would require the ok of a moderator
23:46 Fixer Sokomine: at least saving schematic would be nice
23:46 Sokomine fixer: definitely
23:46 red-001 are schemes save?
23:46 Sokomine ought to be possible by now?
23:46 Fixer no idea
23:46 Sokomine save in which way?
23:46 red-001 safe*
23:47 Sokomine yes, safe from what?
23:47 red-001 like can a bad scheme crash a server?
23:47 Sokomine for uploading?
23:47 Sokomine hmm. depends on how well the mechanism for reading them is
