  • Yes you can earn points for Bumping, Answering and Asking questions and for voting up someones answers. You can only earn so many core credits a day (depending on the level you are currently at)

  • In a way I think it is lame because people are flooding this section with questions just for the purpose of asking questions to get more points. I'll get used to it.

  • Here is where you can learn more:

    To bump a question means you think the question deserves more answers.

    To vote up an answer means you like their answer, agree with them, the answer is funny, etc.

    But basically, you earn basic credits by asking questions, answering questions, bumping questions and voting up answers. You get a certain amount of each of those a day so you cant go crazy asking tons of questions a day just to earn points.

    You also earn extra credit by being voted best answer, by getting your question bumped and by getting your answer voted up.

    The credits are so you can unlock things such as anonymous for answering questions and also to down vote.

    You can also lose credits for having your answer get down voted or deleting a question or answer.

    I think thats everything in a nutshell :)
