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 .

Accidentally finding a cache.

I came on this video, and it made me think about the fact (and yes, I know that we're guilty) that a lot of caches don't include the standard Geocache information sheet for people who may accidentally find the cache.

Having said that, though, the only cache we have had muggled was one of the ones that had information in the box.

Do we think the information on the supplied sheet is boring for people to read, or is it sufficient for people to actually respect the cache and keep it well hidden and not abused.

One of mine is behind a tree just outside of the property around a holy well. Its been found by accident a few times. People have drawn penises in the logbook. Also people who worship at the holy well have put religious notes inside the cache. Now theres one of those Hawaiian hula things that you put round your neck into the box. Try to explain that one.

Noones taken the cache though :D
