Very very very few people have the SCJD certification. The only
reason you see alot of activity here is that anyone who has taken
on the SCJD will find this forum sooner or later when they have
questions about the assignment, preparing submission etc.

Oh, and one more point.
The economy in the US right now is bad. For professional software folks in the major cities (Eastern Seaboard, San Fran etc), it's utterly terrifying. Those people are JUST beginning to realize that if they dont take aim to improve their skillsets, they might lose in a competitive situation if they are laid off and forced to look for another job. Further, some people are realizing that their work experience and vocational abilities is not reflected by hard credentials - so they are starting to take on certifications to prove what they've already done.
You might start seeing more and more people showing up here as the
lifeboats start to arrive.

SCJD doesn't mean much to employers. Though it should.

It always seems to come in waves. It seems that Sun gets results out for a bunch of people at a time, then there is a lull, then another set.
Recent posting to the SCJD forum ahs shown that the number of people taking this assignment is growing. Not very big, but growing a few at a time.

I think there is only 1 active good forum for SCJD and that's Javaranch.
There a few others also :
1. JDiscus - not so much activity.
2. Some texas SCJD group - not active
3. Yahoo SCJD - you would find porn mails also there, but the archive mails
seem to be good for the old exam.
