The forum threads in which the issues have been completely resolved and that have been inactive for a quite long time will be marked as locked. This is only to encourage to discuss different issues in entirely new threads rather than the same old thread.
As per your feedback, I have unlocked both of those threads to be open and apologize for the inconvenience. We will be more cautious in locking forecoming threads.
this thread now has one verified answer, and I surely did not mark it as such. How does an answer get verified?
(I do not even see a way to mark an answer as verified)
at least in the first topic, the original problem was never solved, so it should not qualify for being locked
both threads where without post for less than a week, which is quite short for "inactive for a long while"
Please leave it to the thread-creator to verify answers, and have the period before locking much longer (maybe a month or so). And even then - there might be people having additional questions or suggestions. It might be better to add an additional step in such threads to people don't reopen dormat threads too easily, but still leave the capability in place.
