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 .

Problems with forum last night 30th April.

Had a strange one last night,
Logged on to the forum at about 11.30pm however the site date and clock was for Sun 27th April and not the 30th !.
There were no posts dated after the 27th ?
Was it a problem with the forum itself or perhaps my own PC ?

Keep up the good work with the site.

Can't say I noticed any issues last night. It might be that your browser was displaying cached content. Next time it happens hold down the shift key (assume you using windows) and click on refresh in your browser.
