How can you become the user of the day at your favorite BOINC project? Create or edit your profile. You won't be chosen as user of the day on a BOINC project unless you have a profile. Once selected, you won't be selected again unless you make some type of change to your profile.

"There are 9 remaining candidates for User of the Day." That's what the Collatz server is currently telling me. If the BOINC project admin knows a little SQL, he can reset the flag for the user of the day manually, but most won't ever both doing that. So, editing your profile or creating one if you don't have one is the best way to get your name back on the list.

In addition to showing your profile on the project home page when you are chosen as "user of the day", there is a site dedicated to tracking it over time much like the BOINC statistics sites track credits. Check it out at http://uotd.org

Back down to 4 remaining candidates again today. Just edit your profile to get added to the list if you want to see your name on the project home page. As soon as someone else is selected, edit your profile again and you get re-added to the pool of candidates. If you work it right, you could be UOTD every other day!

0 users remaining so if no one else edits theirs, you will be the user of the day again.

Interesting, because I edited mine a few days back and have not become UotD.
