I'm new to the UX community, but have been on other StackExchange sites. Not sure if this is the right Meta to post this to, but the "problem" is happening here, so here it goes.
I asked my first question on UX yesterday. The question itself was voted up twice, and now has three answers, one being my own. The first two answers I received helped me come to my final answer, which I posted as the third. The two other answers helped me, and I'd like to show some appreciation, but because I am new with only 11 rep, I cannot.
I wonder if there is a better way for newbies to be able to show appreciation on their own questions. Possibly, if the newbie's question has been voted up by someone (ie. the question is real, and not spam), the newbie can vote up answers within their own question.
I know comments work for saying "Thank You", but with the StackExchange sites so heavily based on reputation, I sometimes think the newbie questions get brushed over, as the newbies can't provide an incentive to the people who answer.
