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 .

"Good" Caches thread

Post by klaus23 » Tue May 22, 2007 9:59 pm

Many moons ago we had a thread on here where forum members could highlight caches that they considered above the norm.

With Peter (in this thread facing a PQ of almost 500 caches, and considering whether to drop multi's or not), is it not time to resurrect this?

A recent mail from a cacher I met at the 2nd ever event in Ireland, waaay back in March 2004, said: "POIs were what it was all about. I've done a few lately where I've been routed around the countryside to places of no interest and ended up searching for a cache at a gatepost or some other obscure place! Still it gets me out of the house into the fresh air!"

So, folks, could it be done? The original thread is here.

There was a 2nd thread started by Bootle on this topic.

It was called "Recommended Caches" and can be found here
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."
