Ideas for Scratch variables and lists

I have some ideas for Scratch's variables and lists.
1. What if you could choose what types of a variable you are making (normal readout, large readout, slider) in the menu-thing where you are making a variable? So it would be like this:


2. If the item before this works, what if you could set a sliders min/max in the same place?

3. With lists, users can add whatever baloney they want to lists while viewing the program

which could potentially mess up the program. What if there was an option for lists so that users can not edit so-and-so list and can edit this one?

This one's actually sort-of half done already… even though the lists still show those buttons when you're in player mode (on the project page or in fullscreen), they won't do anything unless you're in editor mode. Personally, I think it would be good if those buttons were automatically hidden when you're in player mode.

Although it would be useful for existing ,experienced Scratchers, it would add confusion for new Scratchers

Introducing variables to a new Scratcher is a BIG thing , so the simpler it is, the better it is.

its one of the low-barriers to entry type things
