My understanding of this matter is that SE rules do not allow saying " thank you" in questions, answers and comments. I am also aware that SE encourages "paying forward" and upvoting their answers, which i do. On the other hand, my culture teaches me to appreciate every help and thank the person. Besides, i am very grateful that musicians and experts would take their time to share their valuable knowledge in the midst of their busy schedule... to answer my questions promptly at no cost at all! I think it is wise to thank them for being so helpful. Could you suggest a way of doing so.. or perhaps moderators/webmasters could possibly create a new feature for this? After all, such an encouragement (by saying thanks) will go a long way.
Many thanks in anticipation ☺
