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: County Tops

This was discussed a few years ago and I'll see if I can find that thread but with the expanded community and Facebook as well as the forum this should be much more manageable now :)

Re: GSAK wrecking my head

Me? Don't have an Oregon and don't have that problem with my ancient 76CSx so no use unfortunately :(

If you are on FB try the Geocaching UK or Emerald Isle groups. You will probably find more Oregon users there. Shout if you need the links.

Re: Not sure what I should have done

Sounds like the older, now archived cache. The CO is UK based so I would have removed it and emailed him to see what he wanted done with the container. However, you weren't to know all that history so you did the right thing :)

Re: Dublin (and Irelands) archived Virtuals

Virtuals, and other cache types, are not locked after archival in order to allow cachers to log them. The concept is more along the lines of team accounts splitting and the individual members relogging or kids setting up their own account and logging those they found with their parents. Some virtual...

Re: August souvenier a day

Meh! Who cares if they do? I've seen a lot of excitement about this as well as a lot of poo-pooing. It's not compulsory and adding a new dimension for some. I know some people who are finding one cache every day with x favourites and another who is posting a log with a cracker photo each day. You ca...
