The guidelines for questions, I reckon, are pretty straightforward. You'll close if a question deserves closure, vote looks OK if the flag isn't justified and skip if you're unsure.
You have four options for answers: Looks OK, Edit, Recommend deletion, Skip. Let's see what answers you have to recommend to be deleted first; as its the most straightforward.
You can recommend that an answer be deleted. If you're a trusted user, you can directly vote to delete an answer with a score of -1 or lower. Adding a comment is optional, but
You shouldn't comment on these: (It doesn't really make sense)

VLQ answers: (Very Low Quality posts)
I think the movie is called TERMINATOR 9: AGE OF ULTRON.
This does not provide an answer to the question. To critique or request clarification from an author, leave a comment below their post.
An additional "you can always comment on your own posts, and once you have sufficient reputation you will be able to comment on any post." will be there if the user has less than 50 reputation.
A new question:
OkAY now i so didn't understund theez answers lol. what does Nemo say in Elysium?
If you have a new question, please ask it by clicking the Ask Question button. Include a link to this question if it helps provide context.
A thanks post:
Thank you I love you ur answer changed my life soooo much!
Please don't add "thank you" as an answer. Once you have sufficient reputation, you will be able to vote up questions and answers that you found helpful.
A link-only answer:
Yo dawg you should totally take a look at this. It haz your answer.
Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.
Hope I didn't miss one since I did this by memory. Anyways, here are some pro tips:
- Review carefully: You're now bearing a more important responsibility. Any action you take will contribute to or degrade site's quality:
- I always open a link to the question. Unfortunately, sometimes the context can be hard to understand from the answer itself. Open a link to the post, and study the whole thread if it's not obvious what you should do.
- Don't be afraid of clicking skip. One big problem SE is tackling with is people who don't review carefully (Robo-reviewers, so they're called). If you choose the wrong course of action, you'll be no different from them.
- Judge the content, not the author: Dura lex sed lex. If a high-rep user doesn't bother to write an answer that meets the quality standards of the site, they should be treated the same way everyone else is being treated.
- Don't vote to delete technically wrong answers!: A question or an answer can be pretty bad, but still can be on-topic or "qualifying" as an answer. Do not delete answers because they're misleading or wrong. Downvotes are for that.
- Last but not the least, it doesn't make sense to choose to comment when someone else already has done. Only one comment is enough.
