    Let's explain them.
    Forums & Posts
    * Moderation Queue: The moderation queue has to do with anything needing a moderator's view. Especially, members or posts/topics that needs a moderator to view it before it is posted or members who are on ban and are being  watched. Watched here meant, watching what they post. You will have to approve or delete things on moderation queue.
    * Reported Posts: This part contains reported things; especially, topics and posts. When a topic or post need moderation, you will get alerted, then you will have to open and view full report, you would see everything about the report and who reported, and reason why they reported; if it's a topic or post, a link to it will be generated, sth like 'post #495.' Click on it, it will take you to the direct post needing moderation. Check if the post contradicts our rules, if it does, delete it, and give required penalty to poster (if the post contains nudity or inapt adverts, or hardcore wrong contents). After you delete it, come back to the Mod CP, make it as done and write a follow-up note of what you did and what the post was all about and what rule it contradicted. If it does not contradict any rule, do nothing. Still go back to the Mod Cp, to that report and mark it as invalid.

    * Moderator Logs: This contains every moderating log. There's nothing you can do here.

    * Prune Posts: This part contains moving and deleting irrelevant topics or posts, by a member or from forum. (Ask questions before handling anything here, or possibly, do nothing).

    - you may also suspend member's account for period of time. (depending on the gravity of offence).

    You may move member's account to the Banned group. (if you move the person to this group, you don't need to set any other thing above, the person is banned from everything;) they cannot even enter the forum.)
