Want to know what the ranks mean?
What the difference between a ‘New Scratcher’ and ‘Forum Moderator’ is?
Here you go!
New Scratchers:
  • They have the 120 second rule; this means they have to wait 120 seconds (2 minutes) between posts.
  • They have to wait 30 seconds between comments.
  • They are the only rank that cannot use Cloud Data.
  • They cannot post the same comment three times in a row.
  • They can only edit posts after the initial page load.
  • They can't post links to non-scratch sites.
  • For more info, look here.
Scratchers:
Post lots of comments and projects to get promoted to Scratcher!
  • They have the 60 second rule; this means they have to wait 60 seconds (1 minute) between posts.
  • They cannot post the same comment three times in a row.
  • They can freely edit their own posts.
  • They can close their own topics IF it has been up for more than 24 hours.
  • They can use Cloud Data.
Scratch Wiki Editors:
  • Have all the Scratcher's permissions
  • Can edit the Scratch Wiki
Retired Community Moderators:
Note: This rank does not exist in 2.0, so all RCMs are Scratchers. The RCMs are:

Dazachi
illusionist
KajTheModerator
Wolfie1996
fullmoon
demosthenes


  • They have the 0 second rule.
  • They also have all the stuff relating to being Scratchers, except the 60 second rule.
Community Moderators:
  • They can receive reports from the forums, not the main website.
  • They can move, close, delete and edit topics, even if they are not their own.
  • They have the 0 second rule, which means no rule relating to the time between posts.
  • They can access the Moderator forums.
Scratch Team:
  • They can receive reports from the main website and forums.
  • They can move, close, delete and edit topics, even if they are not their own.
  • They have the 0 second rule, which means no rule relating to the time between posts.
  • They can post new topics in Announcements.
  • They can remove projects from the website if it is inappropriate.
  • They can ban users.
If I have missed anything, please tell me!
Strangely, mods used to be able to ban themselves and other mods!

I'm pretty sure that Moderators can ban as well, they just only usually do it with spammers. It says on the wiki here in the bottom paragraph. Congrats on sticky!

Good projects and constructive comments. Just blank projects and comments that have nothing to do with what has been commented on will be flagged for the ST.

Sure you can. Chedargirl, a member of the Scratch Team was a regular scratcher, then a Moderator, and then a Scratch Team member.

404 error. Forum signature not found. A group of highly trained dragons are in the process of locating it.

Yes, but how many Scratchers have become ST? ONE. IN THE HISTORY OF SCRATCH. It's practically impossible.

Two. I thought Paddle isn't at MIT.

It's possible to become a Scratch Team member though. I think there's this program at MIT for undergrads to find a good major or something like that.

Corrections:
- Forum Moderators is an old title. The current title is Community Moderators.
- Community Moderators can't block users.

Sadly, my forum signature was eaten by an evil kumquat.
