  whiteshark: chessgames.com:

"First posters", your days are numbered.
The practice of posting "First!" as the first message to a thread is a tired joke which dilutes the real content of the pages. We are working on a new program called "defirster" which scans our discussion threads and looks for comments which contain very little content other than the word "first". When it identifies a "first!" post, it deletes it mercilessly.

By running "defirster" we hope that the average quality of our kibitzes goes up by a tiny fraction.

It's fairly smart software, in that it tries to look for an excuse to spare the message. If there is anything resembling a chess move, e.g. "Qe2! First!" then it's fine, and we keep it. Likewise, "First! Go Kramnik!" is acceptable. On the other hand, if the message is "ha ha ha!! I am first!! ho ho ho!!" it will not be fooled, and the message gets zapped.

Please don't think that we are callous and humorless. We see the race to post "first!" as an innocent prank and it doesn't really bother us. In fact, sometimes we find it funny ourselves, like when acirce posted "first" to his own player page, or when a Chessgames administrator posted "first" to a live game page that he just set up. (Unfortunately, you can't program a computer to have a sense of humor, so if any of these posts are genuinely funny they will be deleted with the rest.)

The software will not delete messages posted to premium member's chessforums.

Currently, defirster is set to only delete messages that are at least six months year old. This way it won't meddle with current discussions.

If you have one or more messages deleted by defirster, please understand that you have not committed any sort of infraction. These are not violations of posting policies, except that they are playfully off-topic. Nothing is written to your permanent record. There's no need to apologize.

Apr-19-14  david ne: well said whiteshark it is both childish and tiresome to see such posts as notyetagm`s

  perfidious: <david ne> Those reasons are, inter alia, why I <do not> see posts by that user.
Apr-19-14  Fish55: Terrific tournament so far for Shankland, but his last round pairing, against Hammer, is not an easy one.
Apr-20-14  waustad: <fish>They took a quickie draw, which is a bit of a surprise since Shankland could have shared first with a win, unless tiebreaks prevented that.

  perfidious: <HMM> Yes, but no-one smoked him!

  PhilFeeley: This has been over for 10 days. Why is it not possible for <CG.com> to get the results table right?
May-03-14  Everett: <perfidious: <david ne> Those reasons are, inter alia, why I <do not> see posts by that user.>

He also used to have a bit of OCD with FEN diagrams. Since I haven't seen that recently, perhaps the administrators have spoken with him about this.

  perfidious: <Everett> That too, which constitutes a large portion of 'inter alia'.

A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage are fine with me, but a diagram after <every bloody move> is de trop. Some of us are capable of following the proceedings without hand-holding.
