12 vs. 24 Hours

support, i got a notification that said wo997 favorited something in 6 hours.

do you like siri, alexa, cortana, or google assistant, but can't buy an iphone, echo, or google home?

then try alice!

alice is a wonderful virtual assistant that works on linux and is tested on raspberry pi*
she can play music, search online, answer questions, tell jokes, give you the date and time, and plenty of other things

*you may need to install additional software like python 2, libttspico-utils, and timidity

I can code a AM/PM system with SB.
I have.
Support, 24-hour is kinda hard to understand, plus it's easy to implement.

Simple Scratchblocks code for AM/PM:
if <(current [hour v]) > [12]> then
set [hour v] to ((current [hour v]) - (12))
set [AM/PM v] to [PM]
else
set [hour v] to (current [hour v])
set [AM/PM v] to [AM]
end

If it's this simple in Scratchblocks, when why shouldn't it be as simple in HTML/CSS/JavaScript?

Support although I dislike the complexity and uselessness of the 12-hour system.

Support, even though it takes 5 seconds to subtract 12 from the hour in p.m., it something I would like to see in scratch.

12 vs. 24 Hours

No support. Mainly because a lot of the world uses a 24 hour clock, and I would think it would be rather annoying to convert between am and pm than the simple math used to figure out the time on a 24 hour clock. Heck, I've lived in America my whole life, and I still hesitate when someone says something about 12 pm because I think they're talking about midnight

Uhhh… it would be an OPTION that you could switch, not something you would be forced to use.

12 vs. 24 Hours

This represents the hour…
(((current [hour v]) - (1)) mod (12)) + (1)
This represents the minute
(join (letter (length of (current [minute v])) of [0]) (current [minute v]))
AM/PM
(join (letter ((length of <<(current [hour v]) > [11]> and <(current [hour v]) < [24]>>) - (2)) of [PA]) [M])
Oh and just in case you need the seconds counted…
(letter (((current [second v]) mod (2)) + (1)) of [ :])

I do agree; really, what is the point of it, if only about 3-6% of the world use it? Everywhere else, the 24 hour clock is used. An alternate suggestion; we can choose between 24 hour and 12 hour.

That's exactly what the original poster said. You can switch. -_-

Anyways, support! A lot of people here don't realise that Scratch is a kid's website and I didn't learn the 24-hour clock until I was about 8 or 9. So yes, this would be very useful to the younger kids of Scratch.

I'm switching to support; we all have conveniences and my old post is outdated from how I think today.
