Okay, so we're starting to have a good number of posts in the Stupid Roll20 Tricks (and some clever ones) thread on how Resuing Rolls could be used, So I created a page for this on the wiki. <a href="https://wiki.roll20.net/Reusing_Rolls" rel="nofollow">https://wiki.roll20.net/Reusing_Rolls</a> The page lists the 4 currently existing Stupid Tricks, and I hope we can add info and ideas to this thread or the wiki&nbsp; page. Now there is at least a page where they are all more easily found. Let's discuss further ideas and developments in this thread, and if someone is having new ideas elsewhere, post a link in this thread so it will be easier to find.

Considering how big of a thing this is, I was on my way to make a page/thread already when Scott posted the first write-up... I haven't fully absorbed this yet, but I'll consider incorporating this in a character sheet at some point.

When I discovered that the $[[0]] results were recognised by logic helpers, that was a game changer.

However, the fact that Reusable Rolls includes the entire html syntax (including the roll tooltip) limits using these for API calls unless you use some sort of syntax extraction.

Yes, they are very limited-&nbsp; but if you have the API, you dont need to use these. The value of these constructs is to people who dont have access to the API (or sheet designers who dont wan tto tie their sheet to the API, limiting its use). They make things possible that were completely impossible before.

Go to the suggestion forums and vote, we have a Suggestion for improving the capabilities of Reusing Rolls ! And it would be great if someone who understands the topic better could organize the tips on the wiki page better: <a href="https://wiki.roll20.net/Reusing_Rolls" rel="nofollow">https://wiki.roll20.net/Reusing_Rolls</a>
Juan C. said: However, the fact that Reusable Rolls includes the entire html syntax (including the roll tooltip) limits using these for API calls unless you use some sort of syntax extraction. Can you explain this a little more? Does this extraction need JS or can it be done another way? I only ask because some of the Stupid Tricks recently have thrown some odd results - the rollable tables one , in particular, looks like some extreme cleverness could leverage some more from it.
