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 .

Two quick Questions...

Post by Serapis » Sun Nov 09, 2014 7:58 pm

1 - Does a final stage of a multi be taken into consideration as regards the placing of a new traditional nearby. The 161 m rule. (OK, I think it does and probably asked a million times before).

2 - If I change my profile name does it automatically on the GC site change previous references to the original name? How does it effect stats etc...?

Thanks

Serapis (Soon to be a different less obscure name)

:D :D

Q1. Yes - final stage is a physical so cannot be within 161m

Q2. Not sure about that - bit like you and your identity!

why would you change your name? And I think it at least changes in all your logs

Q1. Already answered correctly.
Q2. It'll change on your logs but not on your owned caches. The Placed By field is customisable so you'll have to go back and change those manually.

How bout a symbol? Then you could be the geocacher formerly known as Serapis.
BTW ..we always thought Serapis was a cool name (just sayin').
