Content Flags

Content flags allow you to hide content based on your preferences. The filtering is done server-side, which means that you don't need to update your client to use new flags.


Minetest allows you to specify a comma-separated list of flags to hide in the client:

contentdb_flag_blacklist = nonfree, bad_language, drugs

A flag can be:

  • nonfree - can be used to hide packages which do not qualify as 'free software', as defined by the Free Software Foundation.
  • A content warning, given below.
  • android_default - meta-flag that filters out any content with a content warning.
  • desktop_default - meta-flag that doesn't filter anything out for now.

Content Warnings

Packages with mature content will be tagged with a content warning based on the content type.

  • bad_language - swearing.
  • drugs - drugs or alcohol.
  • gambling
  • gore - blood, etc.
  • horror - shocking and scary content.
  • violence - non-cartoon violence.
