A serious problem [accidentally starting scripts in project editor]

When you left click on a script, not twice, but ONCE, it starts the script. This is a serious issue, since it starts the script when you don't want it to ALL THE TIME.
If you weren't done with the script, which you probably aren't if you're editing it, it starts up and usually messes up the whole project!

Make it optional in the Account Settings to have “double left-click” or “single left-click” to activate scripts.

No support

This feature is useful when you want to test a specific script, and I don't have issues with accidentally clicking my scripts, so I don't see why this is required.

Semi-support. I don't see an issue with making it an option, off by default, but (as someone who has this issue) i don't think it should become the new norm.

It already WAS the norm in Scratch 2.0.

Well, maybe think about people OTHER than yourself? It's not like it removes testing a script, it just makes it harder to accidentally start a script.

Are you sure? I have the newest version of scratch 2 (v461) and it runs when I only click once (also I don't remember ever needing to click twice to run scripts—maybe it was the norm before I joined?). On scratch 2 clicking twice only runs the script once, so maybe you were just clicking twice without realizing that you only actually needed to click once.

Partial support. I've run so many scripts accidentally, but clicking once saves time (and the 10 million clicks they say my mouse can take). I don't really want to go the extra hassle, but either way it kind of annoys me, double click or single click.

Hi, I'm ResExsention, a New Scratcher who refuses to press that button! I hope we get to know each other and become friends!

If you see "[DATA EXPUNGED]", you'll know it was deleted by me. It's a lot easier.

Partial Support. I think that it should be optional as to if a script would run if you clicked it once or twice. This would provide extra customisability for the person, which I think is a direction that Scratch is going in, with a planned dark mode, a way of changing the block sizes etc.

The only issue I’ve ever had is when you snap blocks together sometimes the script runs, but I’ve never had a problem with actually clicking the whole thing

You could have problems with a laptop trackpad, as sometimes mine has detected a click when I was just moving the cursor with it, but it doesn't happen that often.

It takes like, a millisecond more time.

SUPPORT! I do not like that feature. It can definitely be improved.
