Very unusual first name

Postby Brian Towers » Sat Feb 20, 2016 9:19 pm

The player with the ECF grading reference 302168D has a most unusual first name ;-)
His surname "Suseenthiram" seems normal enough but if the ECF grading database is accurate his parents were blessed with a strange, prescient sense of humour.

We are told in another thread that data for entry into the database is checked by humans first. Perhaps a computer program would do a better job?
Ah, but I was so much older then. I'm younger than that now.

You could have been helpful and emailed the ECF Grading Database Manager to inform him of the error.

You have chosen instead to be gratuitously unpleasant.

Posts like yours do nothing for the good name and reputation of this Forum. On the contrary, they give succour to those who allege that it is toxic.

I doubt whether most people would regard the comment as gratuitously unpleasant and might feel your attitude is more unpleasant. In the absence of a formal publicised post implementation review, posting on this forum seems as good as any to draw attention to the need to check for inaccuracies and minor DPA offences. It's not so long ago that the ECF/BCF published via the grading list all known members dates of birth.

Who is the Grading Database Manager? Is that the same person as the Grading Manager?

I've mentioned it to the Office (as no doubt have others).

Top cartoon BTW! :lol:

Then this thread has run its course.
