Don’t let the open project block open the current project

it would be nice if the open project block couldn’t open the current project
this way, you can’t constantly open a project and force the user to close the app
though technically you could still switch between opening two projects
in any case, I think something should be put in place to try to prevent this

should this be implemented?

I like this idea cus I have just closed my hopscotch app for the 4th time in the past two days because of opening random projects that use this.

While this idea is great, what is the solution you propose to multiple projects looping around each other?

Like 1 opens 2, 2 opens 3, 3 opens 4, 4 opens 5, 5 opens 1. People could legitimately do something like this for a puzzle game, but also misuse it. Maybe disallowing the block on game starts?

Also, there’s one more issue – this one is more easily addressed, but that is to make it so that an open project block can’t be run if another one is already running. That way, you can’t open more projects while one is still loading.

that’s a possibility

or maybe doing something like the “don’t show again” button when there’s a lot of prompts
