I have someoene who revisioned or edited my question on Writers, can I give them points for them spending there time to make the edit? I know they get automatic credit for it, but can we give credit to show how 'good' we think the edit is?

There's no mechanism to do this - and members making great edits are doing so more for its own sake than for reputation.

You can ping him in a comment and thank him for the revision.

    Encouraging the thank you comments is frowned upon on SE. The more common response to how do I show appreciation is do other things that improve the content... pay it forward.
