March 13th 2017

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: Geocaching Statistics

Who was it you were talking to in CAAN Robin? I used to work in the same building as them in Barnett's Demesne when I worked for Belfast Activity Centre. You might want to mention that there is a cache stuck to the wall light on the left hand side of their courtyard gates! They should talk to BAC to...

Re: Basic/Premium membership

Has your membership expired? I seem to remember that there had been an issue with folks not getting an email reminding them that their membership was due to expire! Maybe that's what the issue is? You can check on your profile page what date it ran out or email them at contact@geocaching.com and hop...

Re: found a cache but its not showing on my system...

Was the container a small camouflaged metal bison tube that says Hogwild or something similar on it?

Looks like this?

Would that be Dunseverick Castle and the cache of the same name?

Re: GSAK Forum Post - How FindStatGen Deals With NI

It must be right on the line or just outside it that defines County Londonderry or there is an anomaly in that line. The only way to include it would be to rewrite the macro. It may be worthwhile posting a request in the GSAK forum to query the boundaries and hopefully expand them to include it or p...

Anyway enough about last years Ice Capades and back on topic to this year's event!

Has the car parking issue improved any in the Wicklow Mountain region? Especially for those of us with NI Reg cars?
