I would like to suggest 2 new ideas for minecraft. The first idea: Blaze rods! Why not make blaze rods more useful for different items? I suggest that Notch make minecraft be able to craft tools with blaze rods, instead of sticks. Perhaps to make them more efficient. Or even arrows. Instead of using sticks, what if we could use blaze rods to make flaming arrows? They could perhaps light people on fire. Finally, a new map suggestion, I suggest that you should be able to hang your map on your wall to have a full overview of where everything is and to see it more clearly. This could help with hunting strategies or collecting materials. Thanks and hope you like my suggestions.
Just because blaze rods look like sticks doesn't mean they should be used like them. Why do people think this? Do you want to burn your hands off? Also, there is already an enchantment to make arrows shoot on fire, so I don't think adding flaming arrows would make sense.
You can enchant the items to make them burning, and you can put the map on a picture frame to get a good view of it. The features you suggested are already available in-game, just not crafted with blaze rods.
