Those are called cycles, basically useless internet points (sorta like karma on reddit or reputation on stackoverflow). You can +1 cycle when someone upvotes your post

Or if they select your answer as correct (+5).

The post has to be at least 50 characters long to limit spam (like all those exclamation marks..)

The numbers are the amount of cycles you have. They are virtual meaningless points that you get from upvotes and answering questions

it means cycles. every time somebody clicks the arrow next to your name it goes up. so it's basically reddit karma. or stackoverflow reputation.
