On the user search page of the Math SE site (shown by the picture below), there are numbers that appear below each username. At first I thought these were reputation points of each user, but apparently they are not. I have no idea what these numbers mean, however...

    $\begingroup$ The tag support is more appropriate when you ask a question about how the site works, rather than initiate discussion about how it should work. $\endgroup$ – user147263 Jul 20 '14 at 20:06

    $\begingroup$ If you mouse over the number and hover for a moment, it tells you "Reputation this month: 5109" and so on. $\endgroup$ – user61527 Jul 21 '14 at 2:22

These are reputation changes for the current month. Select all on the right to see total reputation values.

    $\begingroup$ Whoa, someone is in the first row without being an expert in either homework or calculus. $\endgroup$ – user147263 Jul 20 '14 at 20:00

    $\begingroup$ Second row has only one calculus expert, and no homework experts. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Jul 20 '14 at 20:29
  • $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila I just commented on what I saw on the screenshot. I don't look at those rows myself; in fact I hide the green number thing in the top bar with userCSS. $\endgroup$ – user147263 Jul 20 '14 at 20:37
  • $\begingroup$ I'm colorblind, so you'll have to do much much better than "the green number thing". Because I have no idea what that would be. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Jul 20 '14 at 20:39

    $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila It's a rectangle with + symbol next to a number, which has been linked to dopamine rush in certain users. As opposed to the neighboring rectangle without + symbol, which has been linked to snarky comment exchanges. $\endgroup$ – user147263 Jul 20 '14 at 20:41
  • $\begingroup$ Ah. That green thing. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Jul 20 '14 at 20:42
  • $\begingroup$ @Thisismuchhealthier How can we use userCSS to hide the all those +5's and +10's? They are a distraction for me as well. I think I found the code on this page (meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/261022/…) but where would we paste it (e.g. somewhere in our accounts or our Internet browsers)? (Please keep in mind that I have no familiarity with userCSS or its usage.) $\endgroup$ – Cookie Jul 20 '14 at 23:43
  • $\begingroup$ @glace Search for <the name of your browser> + user + css. For example, if the browser is Chrome, you will find extensions Stylebot and Stylish, both of which manage user's CSS rules. $\endgroup$ – user147263 Jul 21 '14 at 0:02
