^2 Block

Is it possible for Scratch to make a ^2 block? It would look like this:
((2)  [ ^2 v]) 
This would be helpful because people could use that instead of
((2) * (2))

If they say the sky's the limit, then why are there footprints on the moon?

I hope this helps! If you need any further, clarification, just ask!

I think it would be better if it was a “powers” block which let you put in a custom number to put powers of numbers.
i really need to share something and get regular scratcher 120 seconds rule isn't good

If you want a block that specifically squares the number:
The workaround is very simple and straightforward, and literally takes less than 5 seconds. No support.

If you want a block that can raise the number to any power, not just to the power of 2:
Full support, but it's a duplicate.

Something like this?
((0) ^ (0))

I agree.

CONSIDER READING THIS, PLEASE:
Don't write things someone already said. It's useless.
If you want to point a duplicate, please don't write just “Duplicate” when you don't have the link. At least say that you can't do it because -reasons-. Writing it and then going away does not help.
Don't write “I agree”, “this” or just quote without adding something constructive. It doesn't help.
No supporting because “you can do this elsewhere” is not a valid reason. If it was, the suggestion forum wouldn't exist because you can do everything elsewhere.
A simple workaround is not, never was and will never be a reason to no-support a suggestion. There are plenty of blocks with simple workarounds in Scratch right now, and there's a reason if the ST still added them.
No supporting because “it can turn into a competition” is not a reason, since it can happen everywhere (such as follows). Post count: 1900+

In that case, this topic should be closed to keep the discussion all in one place.

Thanks for the link! It does look like this is a duplicate topic so I'll close it to keep the conversation all in one place.

Please use the existing topic in the link above.
