What exactly does "cycles" mean?
Zwxwvut (9)

After someones username, there is a number in parenthesis. Ex: @Zwxwvut(6)
When you mouse over the number, it says "cycles." Does this mean anything special? Thanks!

Cycles are repl.it's version of karma on Reddit, upvotes on Stack Overflow, etc. Whenever someone upvotes a post, comment, etc. of yours, your cycles go up by 1. If someone accepts your comment as an Accepted Answer in the Ask community, your cycles go up by 5.

It's really just a way to show that you're active in the community :)
