Thanking users who answered my question
Everyone likes to be appreciated, especially when they take time out of their day to help someone just because they're passionate about what they do and are a bit altruistic.
However, whenever I say thank you on StackOverflow, generally my thanks or salutations are edited out leaving just the question. Which is fine... I mean, it makes my question more concise, but I feel rude not to acknowledge the help I'm being given (other than providing an upvote).
Is it really a case of "there's no need to thank us"? I do try to contribute answers wherever I can, but I feel the balance is always shifted more to me asking questions than providing answers - which is a shame.
What's the proper etiquette in this community?
