For your 1.3 arenas you can hammer the platform into a half-platform and place the banner on it that way. It's a hassle and I'd much prefer not having to hammer, but it's a nice compromise for now to get those banners into the arena without having to placed them on a solid block.To further explain why this is a better idea now than what it was before, is that placing banners require solid blocks, which is highly inefficient for arena builders, who mostly prefer platforms as a means of walking on, and therefor not making it worth the buff one gets from placing specific mob banners down in the 1.3 update.
Aw, sweet! I didn't know this!For your 1.3 arenas you can hammer the platform into a half-platform and place the banner on it that way.

It's identical to iron fencesI think the crafting recipe for iron poles is a little under powered. Maybe it could make 10 instead of 4? And, when Golden Poles are in your inventory, the Merchant should sell them at 25 silver apiece.
Didn't know that about iron fences. Also, I thought that the droprate for the other furniture items was higher. You learn something new every day!It's identical to iron fences
and I don't know about the gold pole thing, considering all the other pirate furniture is exclusive (and not that hard to grind for)
I can make a mod for that if you give me the sprites
So, it's me again, time for my third suggestion!
So, I like banners a lot. But it always bothered me that you had to hang them on a block. While this is cool and all, that means they look a bit out of place outside. But I want my banners outside in the field, blowing in the breeze!

So what does it do? Poles count as a special type of furniture item that can be placed in a similar manner to blocks.
Hammering them changes the way the pole looks (like platforms).

Now, here's the cool part. Banners can be placed on these poles when there is a 1x3 space available beneath the selected pole. The banner would hang off the pole placed. Also works with any other hanging type furniture (lanterns).
Here's an example:

Sweet right? This could also be used in many other ways. Intricate fencing? Decorative ladders? Antennae? You name it!
Later, I might add flags too, because why not.
Feel free to comment. Constructive criticism is very welcome!
