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 .

Has anyone here used this site or know anything about it? I picked up a tb from a cache in Ireland a while back, it was being tracked on geokrety.org. I logged on there that I had it. I finally got around to dropping it in a cache yesterday and when I tried to log onto geokrety.org today to log it the site isn't there!! Can anyone help?

Thank you, that's interesting.

I still can't get into the site though even though I did get into it no bother to log that I had picked up the bug a few months ago.

I'll try again later on.

Interesting idea to own free "travel bug". You can make you own trackable item.
Original TB are quite expensive in my opinion.
You can track them there on http://geokrety.org/index.php
You can log any found "geokret" (no need to register!).

Just made my two items. Let see how they go!

From my experience it isn't a real alternative to the groundspeak approved trackables, at least not here in Ireland. I put out a few last Autumn, but they've barely been moved and from my own experience, it is a bit of a hassle to log them. There is a lot of copy paste work if you want to dip them into the caches you visit. I believe you can get a greasemonkey script for firefox, but I never got around to try it. One advantage is that they will also work in caches from other sides than geocaching.com, but as non of them are very big in Ireland it isn't really relevant here or in many other countries the trackable would travel to.
