When Jonnoiscooler resets our server for 1.8, I will begin the Tree Spirit Challenge!
It is simply a challenge for fun, and having log veins around the map would look pretty cool.

Brief overview of the Tree Spirit Challenge:

1: Begin the challenge in a new world, using any seed you like. Alternatively if you want to play in your main world, drop everything you have in a chest and run far into the wilderness without picking up anything.

2: Pick a single tree of any type, in any area, and harvest all saplings and logs from it except the bottom Log, which will become your Heart-log. (If you're extremely unlucky and the tree drops no saplings at all, just punch leaves on other nearby trees until you get one, or simply dump your logs and pick a new tree.) When you have done this, jump onto the Heart-log to begin the challenge proper! From now on;

3: You cannot move away from your tree. You cannot dig or mine blocks or items unless you are standing on, or directly next to either a log or leaves directly connected to your Heart-log through other logs. Pretend that you at all times need to be able to reach out an arm and touch a log or a leaf belonging to your tree, whether the log is above, under, or beside you. This includes killing animals too, you can't run off your tree to go hunting! You can however leave the log a few seconds to pick up the fallen blocks, but only to collect the items, not to mine or travel further away. And since it's a common question: Jumping is allowed!

4: You can chop other trees down, but you cannot use wood from a tree that is not the offspring of the first saplings you harvested. If you must chop down other trees, throw it's logs and saplings away, or turn the logs into planks, sticks or charcoal, or any other otherwise "dead" material. A tree cannot grow by absorbing other trees after all. It can only conquer them!

5: You can use and build with any other "dead" materials for decorations etc, like fences, wool, cobblestone, iron tools, etc as long as you have obtained it according to the rules above. Remember though, you're growing a tree, not building a castle. How would a tree create a wall, for example? Try to think of something creative and different!

6: Play at least on Easy or Normal difficulty. Peaceful not only removes a large aspect of the challenge, but it also removes your only source of an important resource: Bone Meal!

7: Replacing the Heart-log with a more distinguishable block for aesthetic reasons is fine - as long as you replace it with a fragile block like wool, glass, or the most popular Glowstone. Don't replace it with indestructible's like Obsidian, however. You want to keep it as a fragile, easily destroyed block to retain the feeling of needing to protect it from the elements. It is after all your heart!

Also, I would like to be able to KOS anyone I see near me holding a lava bucket or flint & steel.
That is all.

I think oak would be best because it can be branched and looks good when it's actually branched and twisted. Where as the other wood types aren't naturally branched and look silly when you give them an irregular shape
