The differences between being a Scratcher and being a New Scratcher are quite minor. New Scratchers cannot use Cloud Data. Scratchers have the 60-Second Rule when posting, while New Scratchers have the 120-Second Rule which was originally 1000 seconds but was lowered slowly, cannot post images and click clickable links on the forums, and cannot create studios.
