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 .

Owned cache stats messed up.

I run the FindStatsGen macro on gsak to post all my stats on my profile. Ive noticed that my owned cache statistics have dropped considerably, even to the point where one of them is coming up as unfound. Ive ran a new PQ on my owned caches, and still its not right. Has anyone experienced this proble...

Re: Clueless needs help with map install

ha, I had seen that there was another response to this. And expecting the latest post to be addressed at me I read it as such. I was horrified to think that you had thought that it was ME that shaved Niall. Funny how you read things from a different perspective. I can categorically state that there ...

Re: How did it all start for you?

We had enjoyed a lovely phesant lunch in our home one Sunday afternoon with good friends of ours ( candddavey ) they had been introduced to geocaching through the Lantern Walkers. He did a search on his iPhone for our nearest caches and found some of the Belvoir forest ones on the search. I raked ou...

Re: Team vs Solo

We always try to cache together. When we have went solo, we have been told off by the other party about "what could have happened" if I wasn't there. We generally like to try and find a few when were out to make it worth while.

Re: OSI maps on Garmin. Eire Discoverer announced

During our research for a Garmin unit, we wanted to get one with Topo maps installed. When looking at the 400t I used this page to make our decision to purchase, as the map said all of Ireland was included on the maps. http://www8.garmin.com/cartography/topo/oregon/400t/europe_map_popup.html http://...

...ok points taken, though in fairness, it was an early form of geocaching before GPS was in use. He did use a compass though.

Geocaching in Movies

It can be made up or genuine. Ill start with The Shawshank Redemption. ...Red goes looking for a box w...
