I have an account with very little staked CPU/NET but I need to do some transfers of another token and I currently can't do anything:

$ cleos -u https://api.eosnewyork.io:443 get account auewijsdh312
[...]
net bandwidth: 
     staked:          0.1000 EOS
[...]
cpu bandwidth:
     staked:          0.1000 EOS
     delegated:       0.0000 EOS
     used:             2.463 ms   
     available:            0 us   
     limit:                9 us   

EOS balances: 
     liquid:            0.0003 EOS
     staked:            0.2000 EOS
     unstaking:         0.0000 EOS
     total:             0.2003 EOS [...]

Even forgetting how little liquid EOS the account has, it doesn't have enough CPU to stake any more EOS, so even if I could transfer EOS to it, I don't think it will help:

$ cleos --url http://api.eosnewyork.io system delegatebw auewijsdh312 auewijsdh312 "0.0001 EOS" "0.0001 EOS"
Error 3080004: Transaction exceeded the current CPU usage limit imposed on the transaction
Error Details:
billed CPU time (1450 us) is greater than the maximum billable CPU time for the transaction (9 us)

So then I created a new account in Scatter thinking that I would be able to then stake some CPU/NET in that account and then delegatebw the stake over to the above account. I wasn't sure if this would all work, so I started by just creating an account with 2 EOS:

$ cleos -u https://api.eosnewyork.io:443 get account jlkjdfalkjiw
[...]
net bandwidth: 
     staked:          0.0512 EOS
[...]
cpu bandwidth:
     staked:          0.1536 EOS
     delegated:       0.0000 EOS
     used:                 0 us   
     available:           14 us   
     limit:               14 us   

EOS balances: 
     liquid:            1.5134 EOS
     staked:            0.2048 EOS
     unstaking:         0.0000 EOS
     total:             1.7182 EOS [...]

But again, I can't even stake any more CPU/NET with this new account:

$ cleos --url http://api.eosnewyork.io system delegatebw jlkjdfalkjiw jlkjdfalkjiw "0.0001 EOS" "0.0001 EOS"
Error 3080004: Transaction exceeded the current CPU usage limit imposed on the transaction
Error Details:
billed CPU time (1943 us) is greater than the maximum billable CPU time for the transaction (14 us)

So does this mean that Scatter is creating accounts with insufficient CPU/NET staked? Or perhaps it just stakes a proportion of how much is transferred on creation? If so, how much should I be creating it with to have enough to do something with the account?

Alternatively, should I just create an account using cleos with cleos --url http://api.eosnewyork.io system newaccount --stake-net TEXT --stake-cpu TEXT? If so, how much should I stake to start?
