You get them for things like Best Answer, or if your question gets bumped or if someone "+" 's your response. I don't have any bumps left today, or I'd bump this for you, lol. As for whether they count for anything, I guess they just contribute to your overall score. Core credits are credits you're able to spend on either bumping, voting on an answer, etc. Kinda confusing, I know, but I'm getting the hang of it.
