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: How are FTFs counted ?

I think you can also do it like this, include;

{FTF}

in your FTF log so project-gc can pick it up as an FTF.

Re: Dublin (and Irelands) archived Virtuals

Here's one that was archived when we were there in February 2011.
It had been archived since August 2005.
It obviously wasn't locked when we claimed a find on it.
But, for some reason, in May 2011 it got locked.
Go figure.

Re: Camp'n'Cache in Northern Ireland

We stayed in a campsite near Enniskillen once but there aren't a lot of caches about the place.
We usually camp up the Mournes so don't know a lot about campsites, sorry.

A Geocaching Statistics site

You may or may not know this about me ... but I like my numbers ;) I've been "tinkering" with this for a while now and whilst still incomplete (and at present, not up-to-date) I'm putting it out there. There are inconsistencies, at least one broken link and I have plans to add additional info but fo...

Re: My Finds Query

If you want to get all your finds then you shouldn't be making a pocket query to get them though.
You should be clicking on the button that says "Add to Queue" - that'll give you them all.

Re: cuckoo caches???

Not in my caches they aren't.
I use micros in my larger containers to keep the log dry.
I do ensure that it is well marked to let the finder know though.

Re: EarthCaching!

I can vouch for what Serapis said - GC1YH94 was more or less plonked on my cache GC1JN06 - and nobody had the courtesy to ask if I was ok with it. :-x Yep, that's definitely a problem one right there. We were there in 2010 and did the earthcache but didn't see the traditional on our gps' map so did...

Re: GSAK 8.0

A year and no reply!? I finally updated GSAK to version 8 at the weekend there. The only thing I've used it for is to archive caches that no longer get updated. I don't know how you were meant to do that before but I had been doing it manually. Since I'd gotten a little lazy at that I was glad to hi...

Nice site but a bit sluggish.
Is it just the 60 caches then?
