Cycles

Okay...

This is an embarrassing question cuz I'm a repler for a while now...

But how do you get cycles and what's the point of them?

Cycles are a sort of reputation points; it’s the number in parentheses next to your username. You have 171, and I have about 2000. For now, cycles don’t mean anything and are worthless, but the repl.it team might add something to them later....
you get cycles by people upvoting your comments, posts, etc. You can also get 5 cycles if someone selects your answer; if you think it’s helpful ;)

Basically, just remember that they’re useless and when people upvote you you get cycles.

Hope this helps! =)
