I still don't get the credits thing, help!

OK, I have 251 total credits, 40 credits earned, of which 24 are core credits and 15 are extra credit, and 84 core credits available now. NONE of that adds up!

Can anyone explain it to me simply? PLEASE!

  • The 24 core and 15 extra are for today so far. The rest of the 251 are what you have received on other days. The 84 core credits available are what you can get by answering, asking, bumping, and voting. Any other credits are extra that you get when somebody bumps your question or votes your answer up or chooses your answer as best answer.

  • The 24 core credits that you got today so far were from you asking, answering, bumping, voting.

  • So if I ask answer, bump and vote more today I can earn up to those 84 "available" to-go like credits? and if I keep going (like I have time), I cant get more than 84 more today? Is that right?

    actually you have 239 total credits, 40 credits may be just your DAILY credits earned, and you have 84 core credits you can still get by the end of the day.

  • you can't earn more than 84 more CORE credits (those you get for answering questions, posting questions, bumping questions, or giving plus to an answer)

    You can still earn extra credit for bumps YOU get, or plus's YOU get.. or if you are selected best answer in a question.
