It was suggested earlier this week to me that the day and night cycles should be increased. I think it would be a good idea. That way, for newer players, it gives them more time to get setup for the night and longer time for older players to work on projects without constantly worrying if a mob is going to attack. I am constantly hearing from players to sleep in beds because they didn't have enough time to finish what they were doing before darkness fell.
The time can be debated but I believe a 20m day and a 15m night would be adequate as days are (on average) longer than night. That way, players have that extra time but the night isn't as substantial of a threat as it usually is, even though it has a longer period than before.
Please comment as to how you think this could be good or bad and how you think it should be. I would like to hear what everyone has to say
TL;DR - Day and night cycles should be increased, tell me what you think.
