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: Milestone Congratulation Thread

12 formal cache types, a lab cache on top - and a waymark, just for fun! A lot of fun, after some very serious preparations and some keen time-keeping - pity we didn't have more time to do some of the puzzles - the D/T grid was there for the picking... it would have been cool to do all 81 D/Ts in a ...

Re: Knitting Needle Square up for adoption in Dublin

Yeah, I have two other caches in the immediate area, so I can accommodate this without too much difficulty.

Re: Photo Game: Name that Castle cache!

The plane is an A319. Why? Well, just because it is. Same way if you saw a mini you'd now it wasn't a Lamboghini. Now which A319 is a slightly more interesting question; to me it looks like the 'new' Tatarstan Airlines livery that was applied weeks before they had their operating license removed. ht...
