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 .

LOL :lol: Sorry, they're both not in great form at moment with the hay fever, but I'll hang on to them anyway.

I remember when we still had a monthly photography competition on GeocachingIreland and I would never win :( :lol:

Best thing I ever did was getting my 400D.
Having it made me want to learn more about photography.

looking that way as it was recommended to me by Batsgonemad.

we will have to start a 400d cache to log the find you need to submit a photo taken with the 400d. not sure how we prove that... perhaps we take one with the 400d and one with the old mobile camera and show there is no comparison (well there better not be)

The properties section of the photograph has the make and model contained in it. It is of course possible to edit the property box but like so many things in Geocaching a certain amount of trust must pervail.
