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 .

Short Delay on Reviewing ccaches

Post by Dave-MP » Wed Dec 30, 2009 8:07 pm

This is just a Heads Up to advice anyone thinking of submitting a cache for Review in the next couple of days, that there will be a delay. Niall-Croaghan is visiting Relatives, and unfortunately due to the local weather conditions making the roads extremely dangerous [Niall will comment further on that when he is able to :? ]. It means he's not able to travel home until the roads become passable.

Niall currently is only able to access emails, and does not have net access. Normally if he's away for a extended period, I cover for him. But this is on a hit or miss basis, as I do not have access to clear mapping for Ireland, nor major Landowner Issues. So rather than review caches for the couple of days he's going to be away, I'm simply posting a advisory to any cache submission. That there will be a delay in Reviewing the cache.

Normal cache Reviewing will return in the next couple of days. Barring the road conditions worsening.

I'd just like to thank everyone in advance for their understanding over this.
