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: Re-introducing

Hi Letty....welcome back :mrgreen: Are you back in Ireland permanently or just a visit?

What part of Donegal are you in and will you have a car? What kind of caches do you want to do - walky ones or park and grabs?

Re: Doing well do far...

Hmmmm....the 20th is also the date for the Benbulben night walk for Sligo/Leitrim MRT. I was hoping to do that and don't think I'll be able to make both!

Re: Logging own caches

Good question. I wouldn't log it but I can see your logic. You could always create the challenge on a new basic member cache and log it that way. I guess it depends whether you want to own it or log it more :)

I can make the 20th but not any other so looks like you need to choose between Chris and myself ;)

Re: PQ email

noreply is the correct one. I've seen this discussed on the reviewers forum and it's some kind of internal glitch.

Re: Premium Membership Hike

Just worked it out.

$30 = €23.34 + 21% VAT = €28.24

This means we have been "overcharged" by €1.76 per year. Not really worth getting that worked up about to be honest!

Re: Premium Membership Hike

I haven't paid an awful lot of attention to it but from what I have been told there was no option but to increase European fees as they were officially told they were in breach of some kind of trading law. This means that the European prices will always be higher than the US ones (like there is with...

Re: Premium Membership Hike

If you renew your membership you don't have to pay the extra money. This only applies to new memberships.

Re: Camp'n'Cache in Northern Ireland

Must be somewhere on the North Coast near Portrush or Portstewart? Loads of caches there too
