Muhdnurhidayat or usually written in all small case muhdnurhidayat is a Minetest player since 9 November 2016 and has been organizing a few local Minetest servers over LAN. She also owns one test server hosted on VPS named Jom Main Minetest!! (Malay for Let's Play Minetest!!) on the net. The server is not always available as it is a test server mainly for testing mods translations over multiplayer environment.

She has decided to translate Minetest into Malay after knowing it is still not available in Malay. She is contributing to the Minetest Wiki since April of 2017[4] and contributing to Minetest Game translations since February of 2017.[5]

Just like any other Malays, Muhdnurhidayat's full name is patronymic, consisting of given name followed by surname. The user name Muhdnurhidayat is the combination of the ending part of her given name in real life, Nurul Azeera Hidayah @ Muhammad Nur Hidayat and her surname is personal thus not shared.

It is common that Muhammad being abbreviated to just Muhd in real life in Malaysia and Malaysians will read it properly as /muhammad/ even if it is in abbreviated form. However, she accepts foreigner pronuncing Muhd as one syllable sound /məhʔ/, or two syllable /məhdi/. Muhdnurhidayat is also known as Xi Daya (喜达亚) in Chinese as written in primary school graduation certificate, and Yatsuko Yasuyoshi (安喜弥津子 Yasuyoshi Yatsuko) which is her created name in Japanese. She is usually known as the nickname yaya in real life.

Alternatively, she also accepts email through the enquiry email specific for Minetest enquiry, minetest(at)mnh48(dot)moe which would be displayed to public in her The MNH48 Discord server. You can contact her in English, Malay, Chinese or Japanese.
