Admins have access to something called Control Pannel aka CP.
Its pretty much the key to the forums, you can delete topics, threads, forums like the Newbie one.
You can check all the users ip's, info they entered at signing up.
Make Global announcments in each Topic Thread etc....
Its basically the control room of the forums.
Hope this clears things for you...
