When I established the forums in 2005 it was to offer a more richer web experience and greater functionality than the platform where we started this social adventure in 2003, Yahoo Groups. The forums were once a busy hive of activity and provided locals and visitors with a wealth of information just like the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook today.

It was a time where we didn't have the many social media platforms we have today, and it was a different time in terms of mobility and technology. There was no instant access to information, no Google Maps and a very limited base map on your GPSr. Mobile connectivity for me was a 9600bps Infrared connection from a Nokia to a laptop and in later times to a PDA using WAP.

As we moved into the social media era so did our forums users. Geocaching Ireland moved there too, and we have a thriving community on the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook. As a result, forum activity isn't what it used to be and I have taken the decision to disable new registrations to the forums and to make the forums read only so any information there can still be accessed.

The discussion hasn't ended, it has just moved. Join us on the Facebook Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group .

Re: A Chatty Cache - Xmas event????

Sounds great.
However, sadly, I won't be there until the 26th of December, but will be staying for almost a month with the lovely Geo-Jennifer.
Hope everyone has a great time.
Merry Christmas.

Cheers from Canada.

Re: EarthCache Virtual 5K

Groundspeak has been know on multiple occasions to make up or break their own rules on the fly to best suit their own interests.

According to Groundspeak's own rules for this event, then theoretically, I should be able to "attend" this event from over here in Canada.

Re: Who can lead a Wherigo expidition?

The old iPhone Wherigo player, which used to be called "Pigo" has since been updated and renamed to, what else "Wherigo". Even though I have the app on my iPhone, I've never used it mainly because I also have the player in my Garmin Oregon. Be advised that the Wherigo cartridge builder has NEVER com...

For me, personally, I MUCH prefer a 10 Kilometer walk through a nice scenic trail with lots of interesting things to see and take photos of. I get much more enjoyment out of finding 1 or 2 cac...
