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 .

Anyone know where to get these from a UK or Irish supplier?

And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."

yes there is a nametag icon. Mine has not seen the light of day since I got it last year but events are coming as the snow melts, so maybe it will get a few logs in the next few months. (CCHVFY)

It was just a name tag badge (from an old conference I went to with work!) that I did a new insert for. It had my caching and real names on it with a little dino picture. I got the idea from being at events in the UK where most people wear them as the community tends to be much bigger. I also have one with my reviewer ID on it.

edit to add: these are the badges (being a *real* nerd now!)

I have a reviewer coin that I've been using for when I meet people (also have it on my car) but now that I have the name tag tracking number I'll have one for each :)
