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 .

August souvenier a day

Anyone else find that this groundspeak idea is a bit ridiculous? How many of the not-so-honest cachers could find 20 or more caches in one day and log each for a different day each month.

Re: August Streaking Souvenirs

overkill alright. You could find 31 caches on one day and log them individually for each day. Not that I've done such a thing. I'm just saying.

Re: FTF war stories

General Melchett had a cache published called Croghan Hill just outside Kilmacthomas, Co Waterford. So I decided to go for it, but CO said to meet him at the car parking and he would come up with me. Didn't know him from adam, but agreed to his company. I cant remember the difficulty/terrain, but he...
