I'd really like to see Steve and Alex no longer be treated as pseudo-mascots for Minecraft and instead be treated as the faces of Minecraft..but with the current opinion of many on the dev team as well as community managers are likely going to block (no pun intended) any request for this to be made the case since they don't see Steve and Alex as "true characters" and just "the default skins for the player" This is despite the fact Mojang are more than happy to sell merchandise of both Steve and Alex and are more than happy to have the two of them front and centre in promotional material. Examples of this can be seen with
> The LEGO Minecraft sets featuring Steve and Alex minifigures
> Slapping their images on clothing items, even allowing for the release of Steve and Alex figurines by JINX, Mattel and Funko
> Steve and Alex being used on the website as the logo for Minecraft Realms, placing the duo on front covers of the game, using them in official advertisements for the game and using them on banners for major updates to the game.
