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 .

The Mountains Names that are atached to our usernames

Post by Daithi2004 » Mon Jan 17, 2011 6:11 pm

I am relatively new to this forum.

I was just wondering how the names of mountains are attached to our account. I didn't have the choice of picking the Great Sugarloaf. I climbed it yesterday. Great walk. I am just curious.

Also how do you get the stats onto your account :?:

The mountains are linked to the number of posts you make on the forums Daithi,

Did you get the caches up the Sugarloaf? We did it & got them about last Sep. Nice afternoon.

Try this!

I thought I was a computer literate but after reading your link, I am completetly lost. Donn't understand PQs and GSAK. I use a Garmin eTrex H which I don't think is very advance equipment. I will study it later but thanks for your replies. Daithi2004 aka David

Look at you adding URLs all over the place these days! Someone's been learning! :wink:

However I think it may be this one that Daithi2004 is looking for? :mrgreen:

I'm only guessing that's what he's looking for going by the signature on his forum posts! :roll:

Hi wildfowler, Thanks for that but it doesn't seem to be working for me. I copied yours as follows but only the URL line is coming up. When you click on it you will get it.

After "url", I see a right square bracket where an equal sign belongs.
