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 .

gj Gill & Lawrence =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

Bad news about WeeBookWorm & CheekyCheetah ... I didn't realise that so many caches we did were Premium Member only caches so they're milestone won't be reached until next weekend I suspect :(
(I don't know for sure as I haven't written up their logs yet).

EDIT: Yep - confirmed, kids were scuppered at 699 ... ah well - won't take much to get to 700 ;)

Email the COs of the MO caches and ask them if they will turn off the MO for a few hours so that you can log the caches and then turn it back on again.

Thanks all and well done to those recent achievers! Chuffed to bits that the swerve's 1000th was one of the CAGE series caches :)
