I noticed a section (which I am sure has been there for a very long time) for the first time on my profile page. What does the "Projects" section pertain to?

I would guess that this refers to posts I have reported and posts of mine which have been reported...but again that is just a guess.

Nope.

Reported posts and the discussion of them show up in a private forum for moderators. The "infractions" tab is the most that you, as a member, will see of a reported post other than the PM an infracted person sees (and only you will see it on that tab - only moderators and the member see a member's infractions).

"Projects" is a different feature of vBulletin.

Is "Projects" just a feature that is available, but unused here? How would/could it be used? Thanks.

It hasn't been used since 2009 as far as I can tell. I don't see any public use for the feature ... it is generally designed to report and track bugs and feature requests in a structured way.

Right, it's something we were toying with at one point. Meaningless now.

Yeah, I've been meaning to disable that feature. It should be gone now.
