I am proposing to merge the Other Certifications forum with the Product Certifications forum.
I realize there is a possible distinction between the two topics, but I also think they could exist happily merged as a single Other Products Certifications forum.
What are your thoughts on this issue?

"Other" has 70 posts in a month an a half. I think they could probably be rolled into one forum called "All other certifications".

I found myself looking in both the forums when I was searching for info on OCP. True enough there were references in both the forums. I guess, it would be better to merge the two forums together.
Thanks,
Hema

Sounds reasonable to me - but I don't use iether group myself, so I'm just taking others' words for it. Does anyone see a reason to keep the two forums separate?

the best answer for this can be given by the person who created the two forums at first place. what he / she was thinking when the forums were created ? isn't it ?

I'm not sure who did create them - but regardless, I'm more interested in whether they make sense now.

Point is, that product certification as such is quite a heterogenous forum. Its about diferent vendors and such different things as IDEs and Application Servers. It was intended as a everything-but-sun certification forum related to Java.
I interpret Other Certification as all non-Java certifications as for example db2-certification. But there are also references to oracle java related certification, especially after oracle left JCert initiative, so some people might interpret... but well the forum name is n o t JCert certification ... and. well
Hey. Thats too much for me.
My proposals:
the two together in one great pot
OR
rename other certification to
"ALL Non Java certification" .
