Why is it that exam results need to be posted on a separate forum? IMHO, it would make more sense to allow results for the SCBD to be posted in this forum. Reading through results posts is very helpful to those preparing for the exam. It is inconvenient to have to go to a different forum, wade through hundreds of posts to find ones related to this exam. This forum should be a "one stop shop" for those preparing for the exam which means including results posts.

Hi Keith,
Recently, such a discussion was started on the SCJD forum, and then moved to the main JR forum : look here.
You'll see there that I agree with you , even if there are pros and cons to both possible solutions.
I suggest you to post your comments on that existing thread, because its scope covers *all* cert forums.
Best,
Phil.

Alternatively, the moderators (or whoever in charge) should let members cross-post the results to both the groups at once.

Or they could have a separate results forum for each of the Sun's exams.

The problem with cross-posting is that people can then reply in two different threads and that makes it hard to follow a discussion. For this reason, we usually don't allow cross-posting.

This is a good idea but then we would be overwhelmed with a big number of forums. Sun is not the only organisation to provide certifications. At the moment, Sun provides (only) 5 certification exams. IBM provides more than 150 certifications. Imagine if we had to create one forum for each of them. Agreed, all certifications do not generate the same amount of traffic, but according to your idea, this is the way we would have to go.
As Philippe mentioned, there is another thread discussing this problematic and I'm going to close this topic now.

Thank you
