That's the same for me.
From past experiences with forumotion,
-Rank names have to be created under rank administration on the admin panel, set to special rank before going to the user profiles to give them the ranks, all done on the admin panel.
-To edit poses, the admins need to change the permissions of each group through group administrations, then permissions, or done under each forum categories/forums permissions. The user group which is the moderator of the forum can edit poses. Not all user groups can do edit poses. It's different from proboards. Without the permission to edit poses, we can't edit others poses except our own.
-I'm not sure about Flood Control. ><
-Admin panel can only be access by the forum administrators. It's a good thing, no one can hack and troll the forum, except for the admins themselves (impossible. Why would they? ._.)
Moderation activity can also be viewed through admin panel. ^^
