With orif:

Without commenting on the idea itself, I think "thenif" makes more
sense than "orif".

"thenif" makes it seem like an if inside an if.

"orif" is literally the "or" operator (can't stress this enough) combined with "if".

It's similar to doing

local flag = false
local function f()
  flag = true
if (i==1 and (f() or true)) or i==2 then -- (f() or true) is needed because we always want it to be true)
