@warmweer: You clearly haven't read my post hence for the misunderstanding here, so I'll try to explain.
First, what TWC (Total War Center) has is a moderation structure that's a lot more improved than what phpBB ever had.
Second, sure I know about the Newly Registered group, but did I even mention the Newly Registered group in the OP. Hmm, did I?
I did not mentioned the Newly Registered group you did, which has nothing to do what my idea is all about. Absolutely nothing!
Third, another misunderstanding about what I am trying to say here and what I meant was is what moderation procedure a moderator on phpBB forum needs to do when I compare it with what moderation procedure a moderator on TWC needs to do, which are a major difference between a phpBB forum and a vBulletin forum such as TWC.
I also know what moderation tools a phpBB moderator have and when I compare it with what moderation tools a moderator on TWC have at their disposal. Which is the main of why I think the moderation structure in phpBB had been neglected for years.

and if you are going to give examples for comparison it would help if you linked to them. I have no idea what TWC or GHF are.
Sorry, no link as it's hidden from regular members and guests. But I'll try to describe what I mean.
When I was a moderator on GHF for a short period of time I learned that every time a post was reported we in staff needed to first close the thread then move the post into the staff room and once that was done re-open the closed thread (just to avoid futher posts were made). Only then could a moderation discussion begin in the staff room and that ended when a decision was made about the reported post. I also believe that is exactly the same as it was 8 years ago, so nothing have changed over all these years.
Now, nothing what I had to do on GHF needs to be done on TWC due for better moderation structure and this is what happen after a member, any member, have submitted a report.
1. A new thread is automatically posted in a Report Discussion subforum with the reporting member as OP.
2. The report has information about what reason for reporting the post and the whole post, inlcuding who is the poster, that is reported with a link to the actual post.
Nothing of this exist in phpBB and the only thing phpBB does after one have reported a post is to high light the post with all information a phpBB moderator needs to know about. That's about it when it comes to moderation in phpBB.
GHF stands for Great House Fliggerty
and TWC stands for Total War Center
I hope this makes it clearer for you. If not then feel free to post your questions and I'll try to answer.
