Just curious why the participation in this forum is so poor?
Is this forum not friendly enough?
You see most of my preparation (in the past) was driven by forums like this and I feel bad that this forum is not attractive enough...
Please speak up, people...
Thanks.

Madhav,
Could be a lot of reasons. It has certainly be more active in the past. Could just mean that we are past the peak of people taking the exam or the economy could be playing a role.
If there are things people want to see, other than real exan questions,which are a BIG no-no, please let us know.

I suspect, really, that the peak is yet to come, as the vouchers from IBM's last free-certification offer expire at the end of March. (I know that I usually put off my exams for as long as I can so I can study.) But other than that... it's just the ebb and flow of things. It'll get noisier again.

Maybe there is just a momentary slow down - I had to stop preparing for the exam to work on something else. I just referred to people to this site though. They had been to the yahoo site. I had checked it out and this is by far better.

I bet a lot of folks check out the site, as silent observers, then move on after the test is done.
That's the way it goes sometimes...
