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 .

Haha! Well done Hauke! Good to see you back actively caching and on the forums! Let me guess, the camera is in for repair? :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

They're great! I love the second one! Is Skellig Michael open to the public again? I thought it was closed to visitors (though that may have been temporary...)

Second image is a combination of 4 images of the same bird shooting past me.

AFAIK Skellig Michael has always been open to the public.
Little Skellig, the one with the 60,000 gannets, is closed to the public though.

Well done on the 300 and what superb photo's.

I want to take photo's like that. So when you are going for the next model up let me know where you are disposing of the current model.
