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 .

Email received today from podcacher re: WWFM X Geocoins (See pic below) They can be ordered from the following link:http://www.coinsandpins.com/wwfm-flash- ... nt-geocoin or we hope to have one for FTF raffle prize if you're feeling lucky ;) (Will confirm that when it's in our hands 8) ) Quote from the description about the coin design "...It has 10 sides and 10 Swarovski gemstones. Being able to sense where caches are hidden is key to successful finds; kind of like being a Jedi master. Coin measures 1.75" diameter. Solid, translucent, and glowing hard enamel colors..."

Another email received today: UPDATE on WWFM X Geocoins

"The geocoins have sold WAY faster than any prior flash mob event, and the first batch was gone in less than 24 hours. We didn't expect this huge response, but have immediately put plans in place to get more coins so all of you can have some.

The presale page for the next batch is already up at the same link:
http://www.coinsandpins.com/wwfm-flash- ... TolVnzF3vg

The coins are expected to ship out on April 3rd, a month before the event date, so all event hosts should be able to get some."


Also in the email was info. re:WWFM X pathtags:
"WWFM X Pathtags are ready for ordering at the Geocoinstore!
