Possible Block Images?

So, I remember we were having trouble getting the 3.0 blocks. I don't know if this is appropriate to do, which is why I'm asking. I'm making a series of projects, and I'm recreating the 3.0 blocks as best I can in the SVE, and they look pretty similar. I was thinking we could maybe use those for block images? I've asked a Scratch Team member but they never responded. Once again, I'm asking, I'm not going to do it until I get the OK from an Experienced Wikian/Admin etc. Here's a sample block: Move 10 steps Elephant.svg If you don't want to use them that's fine, but I was thinking if not that we could try to do that "general shape of a _____ block". Here is a sample of that: C Block Elephant.svg

Dude! The {{block}} template has had a "sb" parameter for a long time. We use Wiki scratchblocks to show blocks wherever possible, now. You can use them in link text too, you know: change [ v] by () To use them in the block infoboxes, just add |sb=yes as a parameter, and change the |image=... parameter to scratchblocks code (without the tags). Take a look at Delete All of () (block) for an example. If this was the only purpose for your uploading spree, I'm very disappointed; in any case, do you want me to delete the rest?

No, I only uploaded those first two for this... the other ones were because I was making a block library in my userspace. The three I wanted deleted is because I just forgot to add my name to the end to keep from confusing people. I didn't know that you could use them in block infoboxes, since we never did (edit: just looked around and apparently we did, and my eyes have been lying to me). So no, I still wanted to keep the rest. Sorry, I didn't mean to mess anything up. *sigh* Maybe I should just stick to projects...
Also, I just looked around a bit and woah when did all the block images get updated? I think I just saw the ones that were the block shapes (not actual blocks) and my eyes were like "oh see they haven't been updated yet."

Sorry for my previous message - it was premature. See your talk page please.

"Secret" Blocks

This project includes 9 blocks which are not featured (as of now) in this article, namely:

  • for each () in ()
  • while <>
  • all at once (doesn't work)
  • hide all sprites
  • (counter)
  • increment counter
  • clear counter
  • <loud?> (idk what this does)
  • user id (or this)

Now, these are pretty obscure, and mostly not very useful. But, I would like to include the for and while blocks in this article if that's okay — I think they'd be nice for people to know about, even if they don't appear in the block menu. The for and while blocks really deserve their own article in my opinion, but I don't want to make one without a concensus that it'd be good. Anyway, unless someone has any objections, I will add for and while into this list; please feel free to stop me before I do. I'll wait some time before I make the edit.

Most of these blocks are already in Experimental Blocks or List of Obsolete Blocks. Yes Done

Thanks for this, very helpful & good catch. I won't waste space on the article, seeing as they're already documented somewhere else.

No problem! :P

<loud?> was a block from the 1.x versions. It reads the microphone input level and reports "true" if it's larger than a certain value (I don't know which) and "false" otherwise. You can see this block e.g. in 1.0 sensing.png.

Raspberry Pi Extension??

I took a look at this article, which is listed here as needing to be updated for Scratch 3.0, and saw that three of the extensions described (Raspberry Pi GPIO Extension, Raspberry Pi Sense HAT Extension, & Raspberry Pi Simple Electronics Extension) are not extensions that you are able to select when you go to the Scratch Editor. Is this a result of the Raspberry Pi extensions not being released yet or is it fault of my OS? Because otherwise, if these extensions truly are not on Scratch, then the article needs to be updated to either say that these will be or were available as extensions. This also could be a glitch on my end or something to do with my OS, but this is highly unlikely...

The reason they do not appear is because of your OS. The Raspberry Pi extensions only show on versions of Scratch for the Raspberry Pi computer range.
