Can be used for:
1. Ambushing people from above (or below) with arrows by shooting between the gaps.
2. Maybe for a new recipe for a item/block?
3: Something thats lets items fall through the gaps but not the mobs. (mob farms)
4: Armoring the walls to withstand explosions better.
5: For decoration.

Oh, also can be used for adventure maps for narrow walkways on the wall or across lava (besides glass panes and iron bars)

Yes! I have been waiting for this to be added for a long time! There are some really good suggestion on this board. (If you can sort through some of the bad and not very thought out ones.)

I have actually been wanting something like this for some time in vanilla MC. I think in the better than wolves mod there is stuff like that, but it can be taken down into even smaller blocks (1/4 + 1/8 I believe) of normal blocks. It would be awesome for aesthetic building, and adventure maps, mob traps and the rest.

I don't see why this wasn't added at the same time as upside down stairs. I think people have been wanting it for a long time...

I support this, but the recipe should be the same as regular slabs.

Which has 100% of EVERYTHING to do with vertical slabs. Congratulations on hijacking a thread.

Are you rude or just stupid? Congratulations for hijacking a thread.

Vertical cobblestone slabs -> Cobblestone wall... It's not that complicated. The giant picture might not have been necessary, but there's way too much random dbaggery on these forums.

Vertical slabs could be cool, but aren't high on my list of things I'd like to see implemented.

I'm a giving person. I'll be the rude one, you be the stupid one. Since we're already acting in character, it'll be a perfect fit.

Not unless you connect the dots. I am a fairly intelligent individual, but your post seemed to be more leftfield toward your own suggestion and not in-place toward this suggestion as you have not adequately established a link therein. Pardon me for not being able to read your mind and not understanding the obvious when the obvious doesn't exist.

You are far from a paragon of the holy >_>. Also, having giant pictures isn't a problem, but make sure that you put them in between spoilers so that the crux of your argument is not lost.

Yoshi has the key point. Why would you craft this any differently than a regular slab? It's all about placement. Crafting aside, I won't support this. This is just an extension of 1/8th blocks idea which Jeb stated he would not implement.
