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: County Tops

Hi all,
Thanks for the responses, that's good to know about the older posts and the fact the subject was broached before. There seemed to be good interest back then and maybe there will be again.

Re: Random musings (feel free to muse randomly)

Like Chris, I don't usually plan milestones and similarly I could get my 2000th in or around my 40th birthday - early(ish) July currently on 1912. Probably not likely now...

Claw

I was searching for a cache recently at a pretty and secluded beach in East Cork: Ring Strand http://coord.info/GC42M2C
I happened upon this 'claw' on the beach - which made me wonder what size of a creature it was attached to. :shock: :shock:
