Yeah totally man, you know that stuff that Mojang deliberately removed for a reason? Let's negate that reason and bring it back because just for some nostalgia! Good reasons!
Yes, we all have special feelings over that older version of Minecraft when we started playing, but you cramming it down our throats and crying how "new minecraft suxxxxxxxx!" is not gonna change a single damn thing. If it makes you feel better, use the new launcher and play an older version.
Although it seem like the word written is a bit exaggerated. It still tell us to avoid "putting back things from alpha/beta" for the sake of trivial reason because there's a reason why Mojang would remove them in the first place. They don't just "troll" the player by removing features.
This would mean that everytime a nether portal is made the obsidian would become glowing obsidan. More info is on this petition:
Yeah no thanks. The bordered vibrant mediocre red really clashes with the purple swirl of the portal it created so beyond something simple as aesthetic. I see no reason why this should be added.
