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 .

New years resolutions 2014

Post by mr.-oda » Tue Nov 25, 2014 8:12 am

What were your geocaching related new years resolutions for this year, and how is it going fullfilling them?
Personally I only had one goal, to find 500 caches this year, and as I'm currently on 463 caches there still a bit to go.

I logged a cache this morning, which was #365 for the year, which leaves my find rate for 2014 at 1.0, a considerable improvement on my previous PB of 0.4.

Caches found : 365
White days turned green : 131
New DT combos : 26 (includes my one and only 5/5, and two days where I logged 6 new combos)

Not too bad for a year in which I was, for a 6 weeks period, on crutches and unable to drive.

Thank you to all the COs & Happy New Year
