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 .

Maybe this can be stickied?

These seem to be more and more of these around, so here they are in one place. Maybe when GC make new attributes available for these it won't be necessary, but until then:

Let me know if I've missed any, or if a new one comes along and I need to add it!

Good Stuff...Its great to see so many decent challenges pop up that are all of great quality and merit.
As the owner of one of these challenge caches and after an informal discussion with certain parties we should ensure that things challenge wise don't go the way of other countries e.g. the USA with a ridiculous amount of these challenges that are not really that challenging...keep the standard up lads =D> =D>

:? Are you speaking from experience, knowledge, or just sharing a negative opinion of something you may know nothing about ... Or just hearsay ? :?
