Hi,

Sorry for posting in English. (Moderators – please move if there's a better place.)

Has anyone ever used the [scratchblocks] tag in this forum? Can you link me to examples?

Would a German-language scratchblocks plugin be useful?

Thanks!

Hi! I reported it. So I think the scratch tea will move it over to Questions about scratch or something like this.
I've already used the blocks. Here's a example:
when gf clicked
move (10) steps
next costume
pen down
forever
if < key [space v] pressed?>
say [Hi!]
change [variable 1 v] by (1)
For more examples go to this topic.

I think he meant if we use the scratchblocks in the german Forum.

Yes, that's correct. Sorry.

To clarify: I'd like links to examples of scratchblocks used specifically on the German-language forum, please.

I think we have no, because we often explain solutions of problems without any block, we just explain how to solve it in normal words and the people understand it. And if not we script some examples (for bigger problems) or just write tihngs like:
When gf clicked
if x =3
move 10 steps

(in german, not in english )

Found some:

http://scratch.mit.edu/discuss/topic/16704/?page=1#post-148125
But as TM_ said, they are not used very often.

Btw: This is Post 155555.

Sorry. In the German language forums there aren't so many scratchblocks but in the forum I gave you the link to are many English ones.

Tohmis

Btw you can already use german scratchblocks

Lilifant7253

Yes, Tohmis is right, here's a German example:
wenn gf angeklickt
wiederhole fortlaufend
falls <Taste [Leertaste v] gedrückt>
sage [Hallo!]
end
falls <not<Taste [Leertaste v] gedrückt>>
sage [Tschüss!]
end
But
move (10) steps
isn't working in German language I think. It's always red instead of blue:
gehe (10)-er Schritt

LiFaytheGoblin

gehe (10)er-Schritt



It's really useful that we can write in German I love it!

Maybe at the moment, we don't use scratchblocks that much, but that can change at any time, right

Yes, that's correct. It's currently in there in order to support scratchblocks on the German wiki.

However, I'm considering having you specify which language you want to use, something like this:
[scratchblocks]
// language=de
wenn gf angeklickt
wiederhole fortlaufend
[/scratchblocks]
Or maybe something like this:
[scratchblocks lang=de]
wenn gf angeklickt
wiederhole fortlaufend
[/scratchblocks]
This way, we can support many more languages, without having to overload the server – it could download just the languages you use, and not the ones it doesn't need.

Sounds like a good idea. But I'm not sure if we really need this.

There are more and more people using scratch and this causes slower loading So yes, I think we need it.

Lilifant7253

Mmh… Yes, that sounds useful.

Oh, I see. Well it sounds good! But try to make the “language indicator” as short as possible^^

Yes, that'd be great!

Well, we'd like to support other languages in addition to German. So it would be nice to have.

Okay, the new plan (thanks to Hardmath123!) is to just download the correct language for the current language forum.

So English blocks will work everywhere, and if you're in the French forum, French scratchblocks will work, and so on.

Then you don't need to specify the language. Does that sound good?

Yes, that sounds good. I've already thought we need that when I wrote post #16.
