    Hello! I'm over here!
    Is there any kind of website or service that provides any kind of database of commonly used if statement lists? For example converting letter grades to GPAs in a home brew grading application? Or assigning each letter of the alphabet to a specific number? Because if there isn't, I'm thinking of starting one. Users would go onto the website and search for a specific kind of if list in a specific language and could get said list and copy into there program. What are your comments or suggestions if i just suck at googling and something like this already exists.

    Never heard of one, but wouldn't most of the "common" ones be pretty trivial? Your examples are, at least--especially the second one, because letters already have numbers associated with them :)

    What about, instead of common if clauses, just common tasks? That'd give it more scope, and it'd probably wind up more useful.

    Long "if lists" are usually a sign of bad code. Use switch statements, tables, and other techniques when possible.
