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 .

So, I think this is about the third time I've registered here, having going on small bouts of Geocaching a couple of times, but never sticking with it. My previous accounts have since been archived.

Anyway, my name is Jack. A secondary school student in the Limerick area, and in the last few weeks, I've gotten back into gc'ing with the help of the c:geo android app. I'm at about 11 finds at this stage but hopefully that'll jump up a bit soon.

Hey Jack,

Welcome to the club! Yeah I think we all started off slowly, but then all of a sudden you're addicted and can't get enough :-)

Good to see a new person in the Limerick area, and hopefully it won't be too long before we bump into you out in the field!

Best of luck, and if you have any questions stick it on here!

Welcome (back!) to the forums :)
Some gal would giggle and I'd get red
And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."

Thanks for the welcome guys.

One thing, how do you get the signatures to work? I used a HTML to BBCode converter but I don't know whether it will still auto-update.
