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: Assistance needed in Larne, please

I'm not anywhere near , so can't help.Sorry.
Are you on FaceBook?
If so,you might post on one or both of the Geocaching pages: Geocaching Ireland or Emerald Isle Cachers.
I'm sure someone on there may be able to help.
Although I am curious ......
Good luck

Re: More than 5 logs and images in Garmin

I think if you go to the drop down "Geocaching.com access" - the fourth choice down - "Get recent logs" - might help.

Re: Potential event?

I ran the event before the "Pieta House - Darkness into Light" walk in the Park earlier this year. The best way to do it, (and the allowed way) is not to mention the name etc of the walk on your event page, you can say there is a walk taking place after the event and then discuss it here or on the F...
