Having fun discussing this with yourself? . The first two posts I follow. The third I don't understand. You couldn't be bumping your post an hour later. If you are doing so for the book promo, posts must have relevant content to win. The third and fourth posts in this thread are not eligible.



I do not understand what you are saying. Is it wrong competing for the book promo. If you check my history I have won many books and replied to many posts. Looks like you don't want members to be active!

I am doing so for book promo and I dont care if they are not eligible.

I did not like oracle's response. Can't I express that? What part of my response is not meaningful?

You have not made any point there... Without any reason why you say so doesn't make any sense to others

Partitioning your post across many posts during the promo could be considered as an attempt to increase your chances of winning.
Not to mention this post doesn't relate to the promo at, a better place would be Java 7/8 where it is already being discussed.

I deleted my post. I was tired, saw a lot of "v" names and thought they were both the same person. Silly mistake I know.

I do recommend writing more than a few words in apost. Andd some more analysis...

John: We are more forgiving of "wrong forum" posts during promos because some books related to topics that cross forums.

While this thread isn't a good example of "post partitioning", it is a good reminder. As is the importance of having posts with enough information to make sense. I would have written a bit more on the response Vyas.

Hmm... I really didn't get the fact that you guys misread the names in the first place. This was actually not meant to increase the probability to win (not related to the promo at all but to Java in general), but to let the people know about the fact. And I didn't notice the thread in Java7/8 forum as this thing was brought in the middle of it
