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: Premium Membership Hike

Does that mean that I have to pay 30 Danish kroner which is around 4 euro, or do I need to pay 30 euro which I will say is discriminating as it is not my currency, and if they start making a difference they have to add the Danish VAT of 25%. How is it for the rest of the world now, does people in As...

Doesn't look like a lobster claw though, seems a bit shorter and fatter

Re: GARMIN eTrex

Mine filters the caches so it only shows the ones that are close by. Just make sure that you are not trying to transfer more waypoints than the GPSr have space to, sometimes I've had 100-200 waypoints already and then missed out on some as I reached the limit without noticing. I think you have to do...

Re: Photo Game: Name that Castle cache!

It is a fairly popular cache, but I would never have heard of this fantastic place if it hadn't been for the cache.

In the first room he saw a dog with eyes as big as tea cups - have a look at this on BJ.
