Say, I got a message that one of my reports was deleted. However, there was no reference to my original report. I don't remember which thread I reported and now I can not review it.

The report that was removed was referring to this thread:
The report was removed as 2 hours is generally not considered to be enough time for the OP to mark the thread as answered. It appears the the OP was not done with the thread when you had submitted that report.
I can see that multiple posts are marked as answer by the OP in that thread now. It is always best to give the OP the opportunity to do this themself.

Thanks, I just forgot which thread I meant. There were couple of others which I probably want to check the status too and I forgot them as well.

mostly we let about 1 - 2 business days go by to let the OP mark the thread. Most threads get marked by the MSFT helpers in the range of 2 - 5 business days after the last post was made in the thread (at least I noticed they marked several of my answers
as such). After those 5 business days you can notify the moderation team.
Currently there's a known bug in the forums software that seems to prevent people to mark posts as answered. There's a workaround for the problem that you can send to the OP by private messaging if you notice that (s)he has set the thread as resolved. The
workaround is described in http://forums.asp.net/t/1381627.aspx and a follow up post in

I think thread Bookmarking on these forums are not that good.While you can add a thread/post to your favourites, you can't categories those favourites and so when you have large amount of bookmarks , you will not be able to track them.
I think there should be a better bookmarking support in the future , which allow the users to create there own categories (like "My Reports","My SQL HACKS","GridView Tips" ,etc...)
Currently , I would recommend to use a browser plug in(e.g.
del.icio.us) to manage your bookmarks and reports.

I have one website which interface I like the most of all the websites I ever visited -
On this site you can create your own folders and save the threads in them. I'm not very organized person, so I save them and forgot about them.

Yes, There is also a good bookmarking on the MSDN forums.

I don't really like MSDN forums interface, especially after the move. I stopped visiting them, don't have time.

>I don't really like MSDN forums interface
The MSDN forums are at least usable again in Firefox. They do have one interesting feature insofar as a post can be marked as helpful (helped but not an answer).
