Number Next To My Name

What is the zero next to my name? It's in parentheses. I see a lot of people with a really high number. I'd just like to know what this number signifies. It has the HTML title "cycles".

This number shows how many cycles (points) you have. Cycles are counted by how many up votes your posts/comments get in Repl.it Talk. These can also be described as reputation (stackoverflow).

@Mosrod Ohh. Okay. Thank you for explaining. I figured it had something to do with that, but I wanted to make sure. While I am asking questions, what is that blue star on your profile picture? How are you a "hacker"?

@ChandlerMorell The blue star shows up if you are a Repl.it Talk moderator, or work at Repl.it.
