"Reported" is when another user reports you to a forum moderator because of an inappropriate post or a post in the wrong thread etc.

the thread is pointless or spam (etc.). you have a 2 minute span from the time it's reported until you get a warning (i think).

when a forum is reported, that means it will be closed soon because it's probably not it the right area or there's a sticky for it (like when you see vs. threads or what band name threads).

whatever you do, do not post in a reported thread. you'll get a warning. i learned that the hard way.

If a post breaks the rules, click the little red ! symbol at the bottom left to report the post. You post *reported* once you've done that so no-one else reports the thread (the moderators get an email when a thread is reported, so if everyone reports everything they're flooded with emails)

how long would it take to get a thread closed after it has been reported?
it might get closed within seconds.
one particular mod (who will remain nameless) is extremely quick on the draw.

it also depends if there are any mods for that particular forum online, at the time of the report.
if not, the thread will remain open until a Mod for that form comes online.

be very careful about those threads.
any replies on them after the report put you in jeopardy of a warning or ban.

some threads are reported, but really aren't against the rules.
in that case, the thread will stay open.
difficult to know if the report was improper, or it hasn't been seen by a Mod yet.
or if someone marked the thread as reported, but didn't actually report it.
again, the only safe thing to do: not reply on the thread.
