Minetest is loosely based on planet Earth, which we all live on. According to Wikipedia:

At any given time, one side of Earth is bathed in sunlight (the daytime) while the other side is in the shadow caused by Earth blocking the sunlight.
Since only 50% of Earth is illuminated at any time, it makes sense that night in Minetest would last as long as day, which it does. Any questions? :)
But in minetest local game it takes 8 or less seconds for you to sleep?
In multiplayer (on a server) a certain percentage of players must be in a bed at the same time sleeping for it to turn to day.
If you convince others to come to bed, it can be day sooner.

Me either. Well... we've done it when we played on the LAN. With family.
I've considered adding a button to the sleep formspec that will call out in chat when pressed.

That will be heavily abused. I can't imagine having to put up with that all night.

Heh heh! It might make you the needed one to make it day if you cave in and join out of sheer annoyance. :D
