CPshared and CPUG: A Couple of Observations

On the two Check Point user community sites CPUG and CPshared, I made a couple of interesting observations today:

  • CPshared already had more active threads today than CPUG. This includes all the public boards, which I verified by loading up both sites in Google Chrome’s “Incognito Mode” to ensure I wasn’t logged in.
  • The number of Check Point employees already participating on CPshared is far more than I’ve ever noticed on CPUG in the past two years.

Keep in mind that the CPUG forums have been around since August 2005. CPshared was only “officially” announced last week–it had been privately tested for about 4 weeks before that.

Again, these are just observations. They may be completely meaningless. You can come to your own conclusions here.
