About Posting 'First!'


A quick note to our visitors who like to post 'first!' as a comment: I'm getting more and more reactions from people who find this annoying. It was fun for a while, but we've seen enough of those. Let's keep comments on topic - 'first' posts will be removed from now on, thanks!

About Author

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender – I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)


  1. Especially Links to commercial that's annoying! However never keep a blind eyes of what could effects our blender community interests.I smell "Autodesk" spies here...

  2. Nobody gives a fuck if you're first posting on a thread on the internet.

    Most likely there are others before you who read the post/article/thread.

    You're probably some dumb kid, even if you made a comment along with your "first".

    It's not like you climbed mount Everest or something, it's just garbage data, similar to spam.

    I guess we need to give it more time before people will start acting up nicer on the internet.

    Same goes for second, third and so on...

  3. hehe, when you work with software, which requires a lot of work around action to take I came up with a work around! 
    What if the post would be like this: 

    Frist (!) of all I would like to tell that these news are awesome! No more 'First' posts :D  

  4. To be honest, I'm not sure why a "first" post would be that annoying. It's not loud or obtrusive. It's a single work that's five letters long and easily ignored. Sure it doesn't add value to the article or discussion, but from what I've read a lot of comments (some of them my own, I admit) are in the same boat: non-constructive. 

    If I were you, Bart - which I'm not obviously (since you're famous and all) - I'd not waste my energy on such comments. Removing spam and hate, sure .. "first" posts almost seems like a waste of your time. 

  5. I Love U Blender :-)
    Since the ''FIRST'' time I installed you on my
    intel 333, I knew you were the one for me !!! lol


  6. Since this is off topic anyway.  I really really like the image of "winter" by Alex Glawion.  It's fantastic.  I didn't want to interupt regularly scheduled posts with that, so I'll just put that here...

    good day.

  7. I don't mind a 'first' posting providing there is some real content also posted.  Posting 'first' by itself is annoying; just what are you trying to say?

  8. Blender need a site for Professional only, Ton has announced that I am still waiting for it.
    Blender is ok but something you  just wish people were not allowed to comment which make the whole
    site feels like: not for professional but for jockers only.

  9. I don't find posting "first" to be so bad. I think it's kind of fun to have a goal to try and be the first to post on something. I guess to some people it would be annoying though.

  10.  I got here late.  What am I supposed to post, if not "first"? 

    I have nothing substantial to offer, but I like to be a part of conversations.  You really are taking away my only outlet. . . .

  11. Disagree 100%. This is not a problem, and it's not worth making a post about. It's not offensive, it doesn't hurt anyone.

    This is a problem on the level of mixing up your Star Trek cannon. It isn't. Every person who agrees wholeheartedly has OCD issues.

    Still, feel free to delete such comments.
