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 .

I've tested this. I logged a single 10/10/10 cache find this morning (I'm in the same time zone as GC.com) and immediately got the souvenir.

Or if you log a cache today but set the "found" date to October 10.

Re: Word Game 3: Add/Change/Remove One Letter To Make a New Word

Think we have been down this road before Klossner Has the word already been used? Neither I nor Google can find it. Or is there a question about the word's validity? It appears here as well as in my dead-tree dictionary. There are at least three follow-ons to this word that haven't yet been used. T...

The iPad with 3G has GPS. The cheaper iPad without 3G does not.

Re: Caching technology: advice and suggestions please

Can I buy a smartphone, not pay any monthly package, and still use the geocaching app and the GPS function without any internet access? Or just using wi-fi where available?
