Wiki question: How do you thank users for edits?

I don't edit the Wiki much, but when I notice something missing I try to add it (unless it needs a table because that kind of wizardry is beyond me). Earlier today I set up a redirect and then this evening I got a notification on the Wiki that someone had thanked me for doing it.

What I can't work out is how they did that, I didn't know until just now that it was even an option. It's an actual notification, not a message on my talk page. I can't find an option anywhere to thank someone for making an edit/new page but I'd love to be able to do it.

Does anyone know how it's done?

"You can run like a river, Till you end up in the sea,
And you run till night is black, And keep on going in your dreams,
And you know all the long while, It's the journey that you seek,
It's the miles of moving forward, With the wind beneath your wings."

    I’m like you Danikat, but I only edit for typos as and when I spot them, or to add slightly more info into pages (last one was for Claw of Khan-Ur visual effects.)
    Is it worth creating an account just for the purpose I do? Dunno, I’ll still spellcheck regardless ^^

    The above was written as part of an attempt to waste time.

    Thanks @Greener.6204! That's really good to know.

    I have an account mostly as an easy way to keep track of what I've done. If I edit a page which is likely to get a lot of activity I can check back on what's happened since without needing to remember or bookmark the page (or even if it's not likely to get a lot of activity but other people improve on my edits weeks or months later), and I can refer back to it to make similar changes later - like finding the code for a redirect.

    I find it useful, but I wouldn't say it's necessary if you don't do a lot of editing.
