User ID - Where'd it go?

Recently noticed that the block doesn't even work anymore, let alone being obselete!

In my opinion I think the user ID block should be kept at the same time as the username block because when cloud lists come out many projects will use cloud databases and will require an easy way to identify players. I think that these two blocks could be used together.

If you think about it, username and userid are both the same. And when string cloud variables come out it will be much better to display your username to others.

User id and username are NOT the same

That's like saying cherry pie and banana pie are not the same thing: They're not if you quickly glance at it, but on a low level they do the same function: taste good and make you less healthy

But I suppose having both would be nice, but not essential

For now just use this: http://beta.scratch.mit.edu/projects/10097250/ Hope it helps.

(Credit all goes to the epic guy above.)

It's complicated only because you cant use letters for cloud variables, otherwise it would be just a few blocks.

Actually its not working… can someone fix it? I don't know how it works.

If you are reading this, please read to the end, because if you don't you won't know what's at the end. Don't just skip to the end though otherwise you won't be able to read the middle, which is most important. Now you must be wondering why you just read all that, the reason is you may have not noticed something, read it again and see if you notice it this time.
