Resetting the Nether?  

Leveling Up

I meant to propose this ages ago, but it slipped my mind between all the other server projects I've been working on (Which is a lot more than you think)

How to you all feel about resetting the Nether? Primarily for the quartz added in the 1.5 update

Quartz currently only spawns in chunks that have been generated after the 1.5 update, which requires a bit of exploration on the user's part. Truth be told, most players don't know the quartz only spawns in newly generated chunks and waste a lot of time searching for something that isn't there.

I don't see many downsides to this proposal, the Nether is primarily used for mining and gathering reagents for brewing and such. There aren't many player structures there, mostly mob grinders. Anything anyone has in the Nether would be lost if we did this, so time would be given for players to move any items out before the reset happened.

Another upside to a reset would be more Blaze spawners, which is never a bad thing considering their rarity.

Anyways, thoughts? Concerns? Let us know your opinion on the matter.
