Oopsies.
The Block
<[ ]>
Why Do We Want/Need It?
I saw a topic about this just earlier, it would be a bit simpler, and quicker to use.
Examples of The Block's Use
when this sprite clicked
forever

if <(costume #) = [ <[1]> or <[2]>]> then

wait (1) secs
next costume
else
wait (.14) secs
next costume
end

No support because I think this scripts:
if <<(costume #) = [ 1]>  or <(costume #) = [2]>> then

end
Is quite simple. And that's normal for a programming language, such as Phython:
if costume = 1 or costume =2:
#do some code

This is totally pointless. This reminds me of a fictitious store chain I made up…

Who would want to cast strings into booleans anyway?! No support.

^ Also, this is what the block looks like…
< [] :: operators>

No support, it doesn't make sense. The round blocks can be put into strings, and it is just one string that goes inside of a string, making it useless. What uses did you have in mind?

No, if you quote it, you can see it's a Boolean block.

So you want to be able to make this?
<(costume #) = <<[1]::operators> or <[2]::operators>>>
No support because it's not possible - what would the value of
<<[1]::operators> or <[2]::operators>>
be? (it can only be true or false, because it's a boolean)

The way it is currently set out encourages kids to think in the logical sense needed for programming.
Your suggestion is not even possible or useful.
Sorry, but no support.

Interesting idea but no support! The “or” block only ever returns true or false and trying to get it to do other things through this would just be confusing

if <<(costume #) = [ 1]>  or <(costume #) = [2]>> then

end

If this ends up being too long, i.e. you want to check if the costume is any number between one and ten, you can add the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 to a list and just do this

if <[list v] contains (costume #)> then

end

Oops, I thought it was a string. Still, no support as per the points made by previous posters.

No support. A variable can be used and changed. It is a simple solution. If you really want it to exist he is a script I came up with that works the same.
define number (num)
if <<(costume #) = [1 ]> or <(costume #) = (num)>
Do something
end

when this sprite clicked
forever

number (2) :: custom
end

You can use that without credit if you want. You can also change the number by replacing the 2 with something else.

be? (it can only be true or false, because it's a boolean)

The value is simutaneously 1 and 2. the value can be 1 or 2 and it still be true. I agree, that the block would make things easier
<<<[1]::operators> or <<[2]::operators>or<[4]::operators>>>
above shows that the value is simultaneously 1, 2, and 4 all at the same time.

Oh, I just caught that it's a boolean script. Perhaps we should make a
<() or ()>
Block to solve that problem

That still wouldn't work because the value of a reporter can't simultaneously be two different things.

That still wouldn't work because the value of a reporter can't simultaneously be two different things.
It would still work, because the knowledge in question is either 1 or 2 would work.

What happens if you try to do this?

say <(1) or (2)>

the sprite has a choice of 1 or 2 to say. Here, I'd say that you are just as well off with
say (pick random (1) to (2))

I feel like this block's function is a bit ambiguous then! Still no support!

Sure, it's not best for everything, but it's a lot simpler this:
 ((variable) = ([1] or [2]::operators))
than this:
<<(variable) = [1]> or <(variable) = [2]>>
