I'm just getting acquainted with Trello and I do not have much experience with other tools. I am looking for a tool that can help me manage several personal projects and I've started out by setting up several boards for them and populating them with cards, some complising multiple steps. I think I'm on the right track in terms of understanding how you intend someone to use this tool, except in my case the number of users = 1.

Is there some way to make the board's owner the default member of all the component cards? Since I'm using this tool primarily for my own personal projects, all of the cards need to be assigned to me and I want to be able to see cards from the different boards show up in the "Cards" space. Maybe I'm missing something? Manually assigning each card to myself seems like the kind of repetitive task that I should be able to avoid.

A fast way to assign your self to a card: make the card active (by holding the mouse pointer over it, you don't need to open it) and press [space]. – dillenmeister Jan 15 '13 at 14:06

Unfortunately not, there's currently no way to specify default values (such as auto-adding a member) to cards.
You can check the Trello dev board and maybe make a feature request.
