What is the number after your username?

I've recently been checking out the repl 'talk' feature a lot more and have realised peoples usernames have numbers in brackets after them, and I was just wondering what that represented:

This is amount of cycles, or upvotes, that they have. Whenever someone hits that green button, your number goes up! (the first default one doesn't count)

I am a repl.it helper. If this is a good answer please upvote!

@Galamphin - you get 1 cycle for each upvote and for each comment/post - it's a small measure of how much you contribute/participate in the community.

That's how many upvotes you get.
Next to my name there is a up arrow.
Press it and you can see that I got an upvote, thank you!
Then the number in brackets after my name goes up 1.

@ArchieMaclean People give other people upvotes if they help them or like the project that they've shared on Repl Share
