Ok, I just voted for someone named \"feet1st\" for user of the day. So perhaps he will become \"user of the day\" for the next month or so.

Thanks, but apparently the mountain man has more votes that I do. I went through the boards and voted for everyone that had a profile created, just seems stuck on the man from manchester.

I think you\'re right. Whatever bit of software that is supposed to update the \"user of the day\" doesn\'t seem to be running.

I was under the impression that UOTD was picked at random each day, and that votes had nothing to do with it. I\'ve seen on new projects where someone would be UOTD until someone else submitted a new profile. Maybe I\'ll make a profile to test this. If it\'s not this, then something is turned off on the back end.

[edit] I made a profile, but it didn\'t switch, must be back end

I\'m just going by what it says when you view a profile. It says something like \"recommend this profile for user of the day\". I also saw an old post that said something about \"why am I seeing the same few people over and over?\" and the reply was that only a few people had created profiles, so the list to pull a random one from was very limited.

This function is most definately disabled, or perhaps there\'s a bug in the new server code version they recently installed on Ralph.

As you may be aware RALPH is a test project. The purpose of the User of the Day on RALPH is to test the tolerance of the user community for consistancy in this area of the homepage....

Ok, Ok, I\'ll tell someone about it. But don\'t be surprised if it takes a while for the thing to change. There are not many profiles to choose from.

I have brought this to the attention of the folks who can change it. But there are higher priorities right now.

So if I understand you correctly the User of the Month idea is not popular?
