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 .

Unrecognized state name

Post by mr.-oda » Sun Jan 15, 2012 8:45 am

When I run FindStatGen I get an unrecognized state name. I have mainly found caches in the Southeast and a few in Dublin. Does anyone know which one it is, or how I can fix it? #-o [-o<

Is this in GSAK? or is that a stupid question?

FindStatGen3 is a macro that is used by GSAK.

While I missed the original post, I've never come across this issue with GSAK though I use that macro.

SOLVED :lol:
Under found geocaches on geocaching.com there is a field with region/state and country. On some of my Irish finds there were no region, so I went in to each single file in gsak and changed the region from none to whatever it should be and then locked the file. And now it works.
