Question of the day

Hello savvy pals,

I request moderators to start something like " Question Of the day " in which savvy people like "Henry Wong", "Ankit Garg" and "Devaka Cooray" to name a few.. start our day with a new question that explains certain important SCJP logic. It would help other people who are preparing for it... The discussion of such topic may start in evening and before that we all learners would try to answer and reason it.

Thanks !!!

Sounds like a good idea, and one you can do yourself!!!

Everyone here is a volunteer, and gives as much time as they can. That includes you. Why don't you start it up and encourage others to do the same?

Also... when you do this... can you also mention "question of the day" or that it is a "theoretical discussion"? The reason is, there are a lot of topics looking to get mock questions answered. And a theoretical discussion topic should get different answers than topic from users looking for hints (or direct answers).

Thanks,
Henry

Well, i am not still SCJP and would really start such innovative things after i am SCJP.

I request other SCJP or savvy guys to please start it ,who has encountered and faced such questions, know loop holes , frequent mistakes and silly mistakes.

Looks like people loving this idea.

I am looking forward for the Guy who would initiate it !!!

Why wait? surely if you are studying for it, you will come across 'gotchas' you could share with others. I would say you are in the BEST position to come up with questions. The process of doing so will even help you understand what you are learning even better.

It's easy to suggest something like this, when you don't have to do the work. Why not make a positive contribution to this site?

And they should. It's a good idea.

Guy, gal, whomever...but my hunch is you'll be waiting a while. folks here are busy. but if you started it, it might get enough momentum to continue on. You seem gung-ho for this to happen, so you'd be the best person to get it started.

You would have to start it within an existing forum (like SCJP)

How about starting a thread in SCJP called "SCJP question of the day"? Or "SCJP question of the day - <date>" if you plan to start a thread each day.

We had a thread rather like that in Diversions a few weeks ago. It kept moving from forum to forum, however.
