When looking for unanswered questions, if we see one that has been answered but just in the comments, what should we do? I came across one where someone answered their question in the comments, and the poster then replied and said "thanks, that works". So I naturally went in and wrote the answer, to mark it as such. Should I mark my post as a duplicate, or something else? I was just a bit unclear on that issue.
Have a look here first.

As a new user it's always difficult: The first 50 points of reputation are hardest to get. But there are tons of things you can do to get more rep:
- Ask good questions
- Edit spelling/grammar/formatting/tags (all of them: don't just add irrelevant tags!) to improve the quality of the existing questions/answers.
- Flag spam/inappropriate language/...
- Give good answers
