Support! I don't bother reading time on the forum because I am reading quickly and don't want to do time in my head.

Recall Alert!!! This is no joke!

Support. It's such a simple fix, and it's optional to users too!

No I don't make projects anymore. I left some time ago.
I only check the forums every now and then, but other than that consider me retired.

Support! It's barely going to take the ST years of programming and millions of dollars to create such a simple fix that lots of people want.

Support, as long as it can be changed.

Maybe it will be 12 hour or 24 hour depending on your location?

Guys, if you say it is wasteful, look at the SB code for it.
You use a minus block and a if block and current time block

No support:

MOST of the world uses 24-Hour
Even though I use 12-Hour, 24 Hour is much more understandable
It's just a wasteful bunch of code to make an AM/PM system

MOST of the world, but not ALL of the world “Scratch welcomes people of all ages, races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, and gender identities.” -CG, including people who use 12-Hour time xD Jk, I know that's not what they meant by it.

But nonetheless, support! I always wondered why that wasn't added
Ok yeah, but it's such a minor inconvenience. It's not like it's not understandable. Anyone can read it, it's just harder for them to solve x-12 if x>12 than to make the scratch team waste their time on this. Besides, it takes <2 seconds for me to do that and I'm in 3RD grade. So even if it takes you long to solve it, why do you always have to read the time on the forum?

Does this pique your interest:

You may be used to telling time that way, but not everyone is used to using that method. I was born and raised in a world where I learned to tell time using the 12-hour method. I don't want to have to pull out my mental calculator every time I want to know what the time is. (Math is not my favorite subject and I can't say I excel at doing math problems in my head.) You need to look at it from our point of view in order to understand that, while this is just minor for you, it is a major annoyance for us that can easily be fixed.

Yep. A lot of scratchers were raised here in the US, and the 24-hour time system would cause lots of annoyance.

Support if:
- There's an option to change between 12 and 24 hour time (default is the current 24 hour)
- It doesn't automatically change based on your location (I live in the US but still want to use 24-hour time)

A signature is a small piece of text that isn't attached to your posts. In it, you can enter just about nothing you want. Perhaps you would like to enter your favourite quote or your star sign, but you can't. It's not up to you! In your signature you can use BBCode if it is allowed in this particular forum, but it isn't. You can't see the features that are allowed/enabled listed below whenever you edit your signature.

Also, it takes less then 5 minutes for me to code something like that in SB.

Support. It's a minor inconvenience but an inconvenience all the same.

The USA, UK and former UK colonies all generally use 12 hour time, and most of us talk in 12-hour time anyway. (Half-past three etc.)
Therefore, it helps those who would be slightly confused and wouldn't hurt anyone.

It's a small thing but it might be worth considering adding.

No support as per @IronBit_Studios



(Also, 12-hour is CONFUSING.)
