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: Nice badges in your Geocaching.com profile

Yeah, the report gives it in html, and you have to manually convert it so it's visible on this site. Here are yours I think: http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r226/ky_m_guy/EvenB.png http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r226/ky_m_guy/FTF1.png http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r226/ky_m_guy/CounB.pn...

Re: Milestone Congratulation Thread

Thanks everyone, great to share the milestone with Lawrence last night, though hes done it much quicker than us. Have to say though it must be close to a record there for Lawrence.

Well done all others on their numbers too, even though it not about the numbers.

Re: WWFM VI - Northern Ireland

Fantastic fun at the event tonight. Highlight for me was seeing about 15 people head off after the main event with head torches and gps units to find the 2 caches nearby. Then to see the lights all emerging from the trees again. Great fun and great to meet everyone. 15 minutes of madness followed by...

Re: WWFM VI - Northern Ireland

Just to clear up a tincey wincey thing. Can I just categorically state that we are not co organisers. This event belongs to Team Houstys and he takes full credit. I am simply a person from Omagh that wanted to improve the cache density in the this town in an attempt to support Team Housty and attrac...

Re: WWFM VI - Northern Ireland

Parkmoy hasnt found all our caches first. Merann and RosMcC have also had fist to finds on them. If you read back in the post you will see that there was a little bit of banter between us and Parkmoy. If that has been taken too far then I apologise. Its exactly the same banter that I would have with...

Im not even going to address the one that has decided to accuse my good husband and I of telling lies as I know this is simply an attempt to stir. Jonny and I decided at the time when we were doing these caches that it would be unfair to hold all of the caches back. The reason we thought that was un...

Re: WWFM VI - Northern Ireland

The intention wasnt to make anyone feel unwanted parkmoy, we dont care who is FTF on the new ones, but we wanted to make sure anyone in the opposite side of the country didnt feel like they didnt have a chance because it will take 90 minutes to get to Omagh. You have rightly said that the opportunit...

Re: WWFM VI - Northern Ireland

We'll certainly run it past Him...hope to stay as dry as possible. There are another 17 caches in the publication queue, ready for release. The problem is, if we release them early enough for people to plan routes etc, then parkmoy will have found them all by tomorrow night, and leave no-one else a ...

Re: WWFM VI - Northern Ireland

We are just finalising the final few caches for Omagh area...its been hard work. There will hopefully be a whopping 28 caches around the area for you all to get finding. Some have already been published, and the rest will be hopefully released on the day before the event, so FTF hunters be ready. Re...

Re: WWFM VI - Northern Ireland

Hi Sinbads friends We currently have about 16 actually placed in the Omagh area but not all have been published and some will be held back for the day before so that there's hopefully some FTFs up for grabs. That's unless Park Moy (who has got most of the FTFs on them so far) dosent get to them firs...

Re: WWFM VI - Northern Ireland

We just published 9 caches in the Omagh area. We have some more almost ready to be set, some containing travel bugs. Its a shame this town seems to have been forgotten on the geocaching scene. Now you should have plenty to keep you occupied during the day before the event...Enjoy.

Re: Alternative to word game V1, V2...

Ahh how silly. I looked at the word "cache" and went with that. In that case Ill go with RosMcC's Akwaaba GC11ROF. A reall great cache in the An Creggan centre between Omagh and Cookstown. We made the walk considerably longer by doubling back on ourselves, in case the trail didnt go full circle (eve...

Echo of Enchantment (GC1NRPH)

Lovely little mystery cache in a strange little wood. The cache is in two stages. Found this during the Bally Cache Rally along with Zoe & Daddy.

Re: Online logs

I tend to mainly do the detailed log online. When out on the field I can log online from my mobile, but tend to just do TFTC, will add detail later, so I can keep the finds in order and not take up too much time logging. Then when I go home, I edit the log online. In the logbook, I tend to just writ...

Re: Orange Broadband

I did notice a few pages wouldnt load for me on sunday afternoon when I was on my website control panel. I went to put the kettle on while they loaded, bit like I used to in the good ol 56k modem days. Had no problems this evening though.
