Do replit "cycles" do anything?
I've been wondering what you can do with the cycles that you earn, and why there are there in the first place. On some old posts, (like 2+ years ago), people are saying that "in the future" you will be able to "buy" things using cycles... Probably not (but just wanted to see lol).
I really hoped 2+ years ago that the cycle store would have eventually opened, but it never happened. Issue being they were just too easy to farm, too unreliable to consider a currency per-se, and even a tad buggy.
Since Apps will replace Share, and Repl Talk will eventually be completely removed, the cycle store is 99.99% not happening.
Thus, the cycle counter is more or less an indicator for how much time you've put into interacting with the forum.
No, they don't, and they probably won't.
It is a running rumor (and it is only that, take it with a grain of salt) that cycles are eventually going to be removed.
