Removed in 2.0 release

The Scratch Days block was a Sensing block and a reporter block. It reported the number of days since the start of Scratch (May 15, 2007). It was available in the beta of Scratch 2.0 but did not make the initial release,[citation needed] as other, more variatical time blocks took its place.

This block was notable for being the only one in the block palette starting with a capital letter.[citation needed]

Example Uses

This block could be used in some of the following ways:

  • Making a countdown/timer
  • Making something unavailable before or after a certain date
  • Creating a clock


Main article: List of Block Workarounds

This block can be simulated with the following code:

((days since 2000) - (2692))

This is because May 15, 2007 is 2692 days after January 1, 2000.

You can also use the "current day" block to get around it.


This block has been replaced with the Days Since 2000 block.
