Etiquette for thanking an editor

Someone is always fixing my questions to correct the spelling, but how does one give them credit for it? Is there a way to accept the edit and give them some reputation? They did took time and thought to edit the question - should they not be rewarded for their diligent work?

If there is no current way to give reputation for a edit or correction, shouldn't there be one?

  • No this refers to editing a post or comment for grammatical errors where the other is for better ways to show an edit done to question or comment that changes or adds information. @Arjan Jan 12, 2011 at 20:23
  • Then "fixing [...] and correcting the spelling" should probably read "fixing [...] to correct the spelling"... Still then: not much difference, I'd say. Also, the "linked" section in that question shows quite a few other duplicates.

  • BTW- I agree about the best award is to learn from it, but still many people take lots of time to modify the questions and get unnoticed. I see questions filled with typos that doesn't get an answer until someone edits the question. At the very least a user who made a change to a question that finds an answer after wards should get some points... Don't you think so? Plus there is no way to reward them now? Jan 12, 2011 at 20:32

    @justin From the linked question - "Usual expedient: go to their profile, find a deserving question or answer of theirs and vote for it. Extra fun when you can bump them into a badge."

  • You could skip the reputation step and convert your gratitude directly into tangible benefits....

  • How sad that my question got closed. But I'm glad to know many people out there do want to thank the editors out there. Jan 13, 2011 at 12:55
