How large will the puzzles be, as in printing size and cell size not dimensions of the puzzle itself?
Will there be an example scratch sheet available to see, if possible?
Are we allowed to make notes on the scratch cells, like for example chipping a corner or pressing into it?

In Nanro and Summon will scratching correct cells reveal numbers underneath? In Battleships, will scratching reveal ship segments(as in we will know whether it is an end, middle or single cell segment after scratching)? In Dotted Wall, will dots be revealed by scratching? Mainly what I'm asking, will there be a full solution underneath or merely will only the wrong cells be marked as smiley faces (which is a bit mean to put a smiley face there when someone makes an error)?

If Nanro and Summon do reveal the values of digits when the cell is scratched out: will this knowledge ever be required for uniqueness, or is the immediately available information enough for a unique solution?

I sure hope that this round uses the scratching method effectively, as in revealing things will be required for uniqueness. I'm just reminded of Minesweeper (the video game, not the puzzle type) and HexCells (another video game), that employ the same style: you can reveal cells you know to get more information, and it's necessary to do so to solve the puzzle.

I will answer the questions I omitted separately. Here are the answers to the questions above.
- The scratch label for a cell will be 1cm x 1cm, and this is 60% of the cell size.

- No such notes are allowed, do not do anything that risks a portion of the cell being revealed since that could mean a zero for that puzzle.

For Para's question, the answer is there will be a solution hidden underneath, and not just smiley faces. It may be mean or it may be that we want people to take things easy, smile and move to the next puzzle ;)

For MellowMelon's question, the solution once fully revealed must satisfy the puzzle rules, and we cannot comment any further on this topic.

May we bring our own coins for use in these puzzles?
