Why do upvote's matter?
I see so many people talking about them especially people telling others not to ask for them or recieve the dead penalty but I wan't to know what do they even do and mean?
Basically things that you get when someone upvotes one of your posts or comments or marks your answer correct in the Ask board. They are useless but typically when somebody has a ton of upvotes they make good projects or answer a ton of questions or have snarky comments.
Cycles are useless internet points. You get them when someone upvotes one of your posts/comments, or if they click that check mark next to an answer to a question. If you are a redditor, you can think of them as karma.
People just want a bigger ego lol
Cycles are points you get for answering someone's questions, or upvoting someone. They are the numbers beside your number. But they have no real use. I guess they are just for fun. Like if you click the check mark. it gives me five points. if you do something else, it's just one.
upvotes don't matter. Since cycles are just useless internet points, some people think cycles do matter because "the more points the better". But yea you can care about cycles, they are kinda useful (to know if a project you made is good, if you made a funny comment, and yes, if you have a lot of cycles then you're most likely an active and long time member of repl.it).
but yea just don't worry about them, and focus on coding! :)
They dont matter! They dont do anything, and dont mean anything. Just because you have 10000 cycles it does not bean you are better than everyone else.
@TsunamiOrSumth What languages did you want to do it in?
I was going to create a tutorial recently, and decided that the best thing to create for a Repler audience would've been a game:
Was preparing to do a bunch of simple games in XHTML, CSS, JS, and Wasm.
Do you want to join for that too?
But Repl says you know C++, Python, and Node.js, so what would you want to do the game you had asked about in?
@TsunamiOrSumth Whoa whoa, I'm treating the two things as separate.
I'll help you make a Christmas text game or whatever, you'll create that Repl, and layout your plan. You invite me to that. When you've invited me, we'll talk about it there.
When I start with those simple games, I'll tell you and invite you. We'll either have a duo, or a trio working together on them.
