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 .

Well done to our eminent geoblogger, Sarahmur who reached the very significant 2000 mark over the weekend. She was allegedly vising his parents in the East Midlands area but still managed to grab a cache or six!
Congrats on the 2k milestone for now!!!!

Wow... Fair play Doug. It looks like a serious series of D/TS in the UK yesterday. Medic better watch his back!
Project GC hasn't caught up yet so will be curious to see how much of loop5 is already done!
Over to you Feargal...pressure is on!

Thanks guys. I also used the milestone as incentive to join Facebook and the Geocaching Ireland Facebook Group.
Never thought I'd see the day... ;-)
