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: Selling up!

Hi David. Good to see keeping well and good luck with the new home. Are you moving far?

Anyway are you OK if I post this to the Facebook groups. Will probably get more viewers there.

Re: Easter Eggstravaganza VII

I think I have a solution that will get around the site restrictions and allow Alan to host the event as usual. I'll see if it works and get in touch with Alan direct tomorrow evening :)

Re: Ask The Reviewer

You're welcome. Putting an artificial restriction like that would be called an Additional Logging Requirement (ALR). These are not permitted except in the case of Challenge Caches and the ALR should be about completing a geocaching accomplishment.

Re: Ask The Reviewer

I can't think of one and I also can't think of a good reason why you woul...

Re: Ask The Reviewer

There is no way to view archived listings via GC.com

The only way you could do this would be if you had been keeping and offline DB of all Irish caches and keeping it up do date on a daily basis. You would need to be a real nerdy weirdo to do this ;)

Re: Google 'Park'view

Google have done this in loads of areas. Mostly major cities only. Seem to remember something when they were doing Dublin City Centre pedestrian areas with their weird looking bikes.

Re: Transferring Geocoin ownership

You may also need to go in and edit the name of the owner. Not sure if it's the same as with a cache listing?

Thanks :oops:

Have re-posted under thread "Logging caches as 'Found it'".
No problem.....when I see the bit you quoted I look very abrupt!

That wasn't my intention :shock:

Re: Ask The Reviewer

This is not a reviewer issue. We review the listings to make sure they are within the guidelines. Logging issues are between the CO and the finder 8-)

Re: County Tops

I can't find it! Not sure why? Maybe the search system will only go back so far?
