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: Ask The Reviewer

Not sure if the reviewers would like that idea Chris, but I know of a cache that was published on mistake in Denmark and then afterwards was turned into a tribute cache to the danish reviewers.

Re: Ask The Reviewer

What about owning say ten caches with favorite points, then you would have earned it, but doubt that would accepted.

Re: August souvenier a day

I used to think souvenirs where a bit pointless, but now as I am starting to get more I think they do add a bit more fun to the game.

A dane in Kilkenny

I never got around to introduce myself here, so know when I am sitting with all my bags in Dublin Airport you will all get a thanks. It has been fantastic to get to know the geocaching communities in the south east and in Dublin, and of course thanks for all the caches I've found - still have to log...
