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 .

Don't know whether this is the right place but its certainly where I place most of my posts :(
Ran My finds for profile and it produced a record of "1251 finds on 1250 unique geocaches". What does that mean. I figure my total is 1250 and that is what is recorded on my last recorded log.

Found the offending cache. I had logged it twice on gc.com and so have deleted it from GSAK and hopefully when I run the My Finds next time it will be corrected.

I see you've solved your problem, so I'm just popping in to remark that your number of caches found is very similar to mine. I'm sure you'll pass me out soon though.
