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 .

I know we have a milestone thread, but this is a different type of milestone - and one worth a special congratulations! I spotted it when reviewing recent logs on my caches... couldn't wait to get her to the Chapel, I guess... :D

Congrats to Cashub for getting hitched! No wonder you haven't found so many recently, you've been otherwise occupied ;)

How funny! A romantic walk in Powerscourt, a marriage proposal, and then a cache‽
Congrats!

Hide the ring in a cache, 'discover' the ring, and then get down on one knee ?

Too cheesy :oops: ?

Congratulations :mrgreen:
Some gal would giggle and I'd get red
And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."

Thanks Guys, it's good to be back at the forum.
It's already been a year and 8 months since this post but I just saw it now.
So I wanted to say thank you :)
We're already happily married for nearly 9 months and I must say that geocaching together is way better fun than alone.
:)
