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 .

Just noticed cacher "ewenger" has Bookmark listings for old active caches worldwide by year.
Might be of some use to Jasmer hunters.

Useful lists - thanks!

Don't suppose anyone has bookmarked a nice, easy website that allows you to search for Jasmers around the world?

Don't think so, but you can abuse a pocket query 'preview' to look for specific ones.

Set up a general query (all caches that I haven't found), set the date to say 1st May 2003 to 31st May 2003 and the radius to as high as it will allow. If you use a center point in say, north France you can check the whole of Europe for your Jasmer that way.

Handy lists those, might well be using them to pick off the final few tortuously difficult ones.
