Your "wait until <> true for () seconds" block won't work. The boolean argument to the custom block is evaluated when the block is called, not passed as an unevaluated parameter.

I don't see how that's possible. Unless it's run without screen refresh, it should wait until the boolean inserted into the custom block is true or wait until the time reaches the limit. Blame me, I made the script. I just don't see though...

Okay, then think of it as this. Booleans are true/false, correct? They can't be changed later on. Conditionals are things you can check to see if they are true/false, correct? Those, on the other hand, can change later on. Well the problem with your idea is that your passing a boolean into the custom block, and since booleans don't change, well it doesn't change. For example, if you put <when [space v] key pressed?> into your block, it would pass on either true/false. That is what's used in your custom block's definition, not the <when [space v] key pressed?> itself. Does this clarify a bit?
Oh, and also, remember your Tycoon Projects page? I accidentally edited it slightly (sorry) even though the top says "Please avoid modifying this page's contents until this template has been removed."; is that okay with you?

You're allowed to edit those pages. The template is just to warn you to not make too large of edits since others are working on it.

Okay, I was worrying there for a moment. Well thanks for telling me! This should be good to know in the future.

The script would work in Snap!, but not Scratch.

Yeah. I don't really see this page working out as there are already a ton of useful custom blocks out there in projects, and what is "useful" is more up to the person.

What about Common Custom Blocks for the title?
Curiouscrab (talk | contribs) 23:11, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
That also wouldn't work, as there is (currently) no way to tell what custom blocks are commonly used besides going to every single project and checking.
