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 .

Basic/Premium membership

I have been a premium member since I started geocaching in 2006. Why then, when I log into GC.com, is it suddenly telling me that I am a basic member and inviting me to upgrade to Premium membership?

Has your membership expired? I seem to remember that there had been an issue with folks not getting an email reminding them that their membership was due to expire! Maybe that's what the issue is? You can check on your profile page what date it ran out or email them at contact@geocaching.com and hopefully they'll be able to help you further.

Thanks Graham. No, my membership definitely hasn't expired, but will do as you suggest and email them.

Thankfully my premium membership was restored this afternoon. It took a couple of emails to GC.com - which they have yet to reply to. I do think an explanation of what happened and even an apology may have been nice! Main thing though is that my premium membership "perks" are back.
