after the end of the promotion, Bear started kicking people out for talking about JSF and sending them to the Struts/Frameworks forum.


Like Gregg I wondered why the JSF promotion was held in the JSP forum (but looking ahead the Struts forum has quite a few coming up -- perhaps some load balancing?)
Now that the promotion is over, I felt that such framework questions would be better positioned in Struts and Other Frameworks.
Ernest, you seem to feel otherwise, and I respect your opinion. Your thoughts on this?
Anyone else have input?
thanks,
bear

Like you don't know my thoughts already...
I think JSF questions belong in Struts and Other Frameworks. JSF is a framework. Asking questions about JSF in the JSP forum would be like asking a Struts Taglib question in the JSP forum. That's all the view part of JSF is; a set of tablibs.
My 2 cents.

I agree with Gregg.

I don't really know enough about JSF to speak to this one way or another. I just had noticed what seemed like an abrupt policy change. Sounds, though, as if there were quite a few people who felt that promotion should have never been in that forum in the first place.

Given the confusion many people have (me included, I've not studied JSF (yet)) about what JSF is and how it relates to JSP I'm not surprised...
Also, the "Struts and other frameworks" forum has a name which feels more like "non-Sun frameworks" forum, which would mean JSF has no place there.
