    Hi, can you explain what you're looking for this to do or just perhaps elaborate (like how you get it, or why it's needed)? Thanks, it will help us express your idea to the team in an actionable way.

    Simple, but awesome idea.  You could see which circuit goes where, make more technical builds, etc.

    Or different colored wires could cross each other on the same block without connecting the two wires.

    This would be handy for horror maps. People use red stone for blood, but you can also use it for alien blood, purple, blue, and green. But you can also use it for Disney maps. The yellow can be used as pixy dust.

    This person is so clever, instead of explaining why we need it, he let the feedback explain itself.

    It's like the Blustone joke of MumboJumbo what do you mean, i'm right?

    Maybe the dyed redstone would not connect to trails of drastically different colors? Like orange connecting to both red and yellow, but never to purple. That would make it useful for complex circuits in confined corridors. Or just some nice looking wiring.

    Dye using cauldron.
    Right click on dyed water in cauldron having Redstone dust in hand.
    Can dye up to 1 stack per click/water level.
    Dyed Redstone dust can be washed back to normal by right-clicking on non-dyed water in a cauldron, or on water source.
    Dyed Redstone dust cannot connect to different-colored dust on the sides, but can connect if they are on a straight line.
    (optional) 2 different colored dusts can cross on the same block and remain independant circuits.
    Different colored Redstone will make circuits easy to understand.
    By not connecting to different colors on the sides, contraption footprint will decrease.
    Powered blocks can power any Redstone dust nearby as usual.

    https://feedback.minecraft.net/hc/en-us/community/posts/360017375931/comments/360001689252 I was going to make an article like this, and thought about dyeing it in a crafting table or maybe even a loom.

    Why is this in the block's and item and not in the redstone category. (It's already been suggested in there)
