Dumb question?

I've come back to macosx.com after a few years away (mainly because I found answers to problems instantly on the web) and a lot has changed. However, I had an issue a few months ago and have a new one now. My profile tells me that I've never thanked the person(s) who helped me: that certainly wasn't the intention, and I thought I had thanked them. So just how do I express my gratitude?
Thank you :) for any help

There is no requirement that you need to thank people. Our site has not only a reputation indicator, but a thanks count. Your profile keeps track of how many thank you’s you gave and how many you received. It’s just a friendly fun thing added to the forum.

If you look at the bottom of each post to the left, you will see an icon with a thumbs up and the word Thanks next to it. If the post was helpful to you, you click on the Thanks button.
