I think people who complain about this whole "First Quest" are extremely childish.
Like whatever people are going to post first on the comments. Move on. Pointing out a guy cause he posted first on the comments makes you look like you literally have nothing better to do. How many topics have been brought up to remove the first quest?
I got the quest (and Remarkin' Spartan) on the first day. That being said, the quest is fucking stupid (so was Remarkin' Spartan. They should've just removed both of them instead of keeping the one for posting first).
So no, I post first whenever I can. It's a dumb quest anyway and should be removed.
I apologize if I come off as a troll but this genuinely intrigues me -- Are there actually people who are so interested in the quests as to actively try to get the first post on a news story or video? Not only that, but to go as far as to get upset at people who happen to be the first poster on more than one occasion?
I was lucky enough to get First! the other day, but when I went back to see my comment was missing. Weird, as the quest shows to be completed in my stats. I'd never steal the thunder from someone else if the opportunity comes up. I've done it once, got what I wanted, and will move on from trying to refresh at just the right time.
There is nothing offensively bad about it or anything.
On the other hand I don't think its very nice to actively seek first just so another person doesn't get a chance, which I have seen quite a few people talking about how much they love grabbing first precisely for that reason. There is really no reason to be ashamed or wary of getting first more than once, but when you go about doing it just to be a dick, regardless of the reason or importance that is just being a dick plain and simple.
If you are actually posting about something relating to the article or video, go ahead and get first who cares about the quest.
The word "inconsiderate" comes to mind.
You might not personally care about the quests, but others definitely do; so deliberately attempting it whilst you already have the quest, knowing full well that others care, would be considered pretty rude. It would be akin to having tickets to some show, then pushing your way back in line in front of someone else that hasn't already purchased tickets.
