@Za-Chary, I think in 2.2, you should add link to any converter. For example, Sulphurous, available at https://sulfurous.aau.at/~sulfurous/ .
Does that actually show the JavaScript code, though?

No, but rather generates a QR code. If you want the code, you would have to use this made by @PullJosh: https://scratch-js.now.sh/ . There is also a longer but better path by using a sb3 to sb2 converter (one can be found here: https://github.com/RexScratch/sb3tosb2 ) and then converting the sb2 project with Phosphorus (located at phosphorus.github.io ).

I'll talk about the links you've given below.
https://sulfurous.aau.at/~sulfurous/
I don't see why adding a link to this in the list is relevant or necessary. For the particular suggestion in 2.2, users are generally interested in converters so they can see or program their project in another language. This website doesn't do either.
https://scratch-js.now.sh/
https://github.com/RexScratch/sb3tosb2
https://sheeptester.github.io/words-go-here/htmlifier/
All of these appear to be user-created and have a download link. I cannot verify the trustworthiness and reliability of what there is to be downloaded, so I am not going to put these links into the main list. I'd rather not endorse websites which feature untrustworthy download links.

I don't know the full details regarding clones. But I imagine that's not something we'd be thrilled about doing. Ah, but it might make for a nice coding challenge for you

I have a suggestion,
a distance to multiple sprites block,
The appearance:
(Distance to position of sprites [ v] [ v] [ v] [ v] [ v] [ v] [ v] [ v])
the idea is: it adds the distance up of 8 sprites in total
Another: Give Set Decimals Shown in Variable
Appearance:
Set decimal Amount to ()
3rd = change project speed by ()
Appearance:
change Project Speed by by ()
These should have a category called Special Options
color:
[#a2d5da]
I have a suggestion for an extra graphics effect
the effect? Glitch
it combines all the effects and mixes them
the intensity is weird
the main intensity set is the pixel displacement
the pixel displacement sets the pixels at random locations within the set range!
the others, those are changed by a random number between -8 and +8
what it looks like:
change [Glitch v] effect by ()
you have a suggestion, post it in another topic.

3.1 Chat projects with cloud variables
Although it is possible to make a chat project using cloud variables, you cannot make such a project. This is because there is high potential for bullying and inappropriate messages, and the Scratch Team does not have the resources to moderate these chat rooms.

Chat projects on Scratch which contained a whitelist (that is, the user could only chat using certain words) used to be allowed on Scratch. Over time, however, the moderation issues got too high, and some users attempted to use such projects to get around the Community Guidelines. As a result, the Scratch Team has decided that these kinds of projects are not allowed on the Scratch website, even if they contain a whitelist.

What about lists?

Could you clarify your question? Are you asking about “chat projects without cloud variables”? Or “cloud lists” in general?

Would the workaround for the pi reporter block get me the exact value or an approximate one?

An approximate one, because it is impossible to store an exact value of pi (so even if the block existed, it still would not be exact).

Not quite. You can only have 10 items that way. I guess you could break each variable into 10-20 parts or so to get 100-200 items.

“Support for complex numbers” and “Remove the online editor” were both rejected earlier today. I don't need to add the second one to the list. I'm not sure about the first one, but I could be convinced to add it to the list if anyone has strong feelings about it (complex numbers had been suggested before).
