Yep, I joined the Beta project yesterday, and minutes later was shocked to see that I was User of the Day. Is that par for the course for new participants, or was I just dropped under the spotlight immediately by simple random chance?

yeah...that's similar to what happened to me...i entered my profile...and the next time i looked at the main page i was user of the day...i think it's when you add your profile that you get tagged user of the day...since i had already been crunching for the test project for a week or so.

The project has such a small userbase that I think every profile has now been selected as user of the day at least once. Therefore, as soon as there is a new one, it is grabbed for UOTD almost immediately.

I haven't. Being a "real" UOTD means that you get a mail from the project telling you that you have been selected as UOTD. And I haven't got a mail from this project, even I was User of the Moment the day I created my profile.

I was User of the Moment also for a few hours after I setup my new profile. I was so excited... after all these years crunching for SETI@home and now Einstein, CPDN and Beta, I finally got picked UOTD. But then it got taken back off rather quickly. LoL. I guess somebody didn't like my profile :(

No email for me either, Fuzzy... perhaps they just don't do that here.

I just wish the preview of the UOTD would display correctly like mine when it comes on you can see the url of the link I have on my profile in its raw state
