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 .

It's all in the words you choose...... my wife uses "obsessed", while I prefer "focussed"....... "mad as bats" is a bridge too far for me!! [-X

LoL! Talk about 'off-topic'!!!

Back to the subject - was it some sort of virtual geocaching flashmob? And is there an actual flashmob planned for 2011 yet?

On the Australian site we actively moniter this and offer help and support to those affected. Then again, some of us are a little beyond help :P

Just did my calculation on this scale from the day I started to the end of January and was surprised to find I'm sane. My wife says either I fudged the result or the scale is wrong =P~
