A topic will be locked if it is resolved, or if the nature of the subject is likely to attract undesirable posts, or things like that.
Given that the original poster can only modify a topic within 30 minutes of posting, it is safe to assume that a moderator or Opera employee is the one who locked that topic.
A locked topic can still be read, but regular users can't make new comments.

About Opera employees help...
The Forum speaks by itself.
But who knows where the management decision comes.

@amatczak said in Opera Forums Search Box Drop Down List:
Can anyone of the affected people try to reproduce on https://community.nodebb.org?
Firefox 68.0.2 (without extensions) and Opera 62.0.3331.116 stable (only with Opera Ad Blocker as extension) on Windows 7 32-bit:
Search terms used:
All attempts to access an entry from the dropdown hit list by clicking on it fail in the Opera forum.
In the NodeBB forum all attempts are successful.
I noticed that you can only use the forum search in the NodeBB forum if you are logged in: As a guest you are redirected to the login page. Here in the Opera-Forum the search is also available for guests.
The Opera-Forum has more than twice as many categories as the NoteBB-Forum, which may also require special character sets e.g. for some of our local subforums.
By the way: Firefox displays an icon in the search box on both forums, Opera does not. If you click on it, the page https://forums.opera.com/search or https://community.nodebb.org/search will be opened:
FWIW: Firefox and Opera are installed as portable versions here. I could make them available on request, since I have no personal data stored (bookmarks, speed dials, passwords, history, etc.). This might make it possible to check whether the same installations that fail on my computer work as intended on another.
No idea how long, but the ID was still here, just couldn't log in with the old PW. Made sure I used the correct one as stored in PW Manager. Had to do a reset once I figured out which email address I used to set the account up initially so many years ago.
Edit ... checked previous posts and the last one before today was Jun 22, 2018, 5:02 AM
Just to clarify, as it might be helpful for other users, even though the OP decided to leave our community:
The "Your post is queued for approval." message (or any of your native language equivalent) indicates that your submission has to be manually approved by a moderator before it appears to the public audience. It is a measure to combat spam and it only happens for the very first post made by a user. This has nothing to do with reputation system. After your first post has been approved, all your next posts will not be queued, but will appear instantaneously.
Now, if you try to send a couple of post in a row, before moderation has had a chance to review and accept your very first post, the subsequent posts will also be queued. I assume that is what had happened to the OP and that's what made him so angry. The moderators and admins also have to sleep, eat and do other things humans tend to do, so there might be times when the queue is not cleared right away, but rest assured, all posts that are put there are reviewed rather sooner than later. Again, if your queued posts are legitimate and not duplicates of the same post (happens very often) they will all get approved and appear wherever you have posted them. Please have a little patience
After you reach a certain reputation level, the forums will allow you to post more frequently, as new users have certain restrictions imposed on the amount of time between posts - again, this is to combat spam. That's the only real "benefit" of having a high reputation and most "regular" users probably won't even notice that restriction anyway. So talking about being "in trouble" for having negative reputation is a bit exaggerated, I think.
Finally, I have made some adjustments to forums: from now on to downvote someone's post you have to have a positive reputation yourself, plus all votes are now public so you can see who downvoted you and perhaps try to settle this via PM with that person (if you think it's worth it).
