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 .

Yeah or Nay

I got a request to log my Kilkenny Eartcache by a Porteguese cacher. He had the right answers but oddly has never found any other cache in Ireland according to his profile statistics...

Maybe he hasn't logged his Irish finds yet and was just sending the answers to the earthcache first before logging anything?*

*Benefit of the doubt awarded :lol:

If he's a stats junkie, he may want to log his caches in strict order. :!:

Give him the benefit of the doubt... but also ask him if he has found any other Irish Hides --- and see if he replies. You could also check the *dates and locations* of his Finds either side of your Earth Cache.

Give me a 'c' - C!
Give me a 'h' - H!
Give me an 'A' - A!
Give me a 'n' - 'N'!...well, you get the idea

Ask him straight up and see what he comes back with...

Are his other finds in other countries just EC's too? Who here would look for an EC without picking up a tradi too while in another country. Doesn't make sense to me. If the guy only found EC's then I'd get it but going by the numbers on that map I doubt it, so why not find a cache n'dash while you're in the area? Only other logical explanation is he is sending you his email for the EC before he logs all his finds and wants your response before he logs them...but i'm going to stick with chancer. Maybe he was there pre-caching and is trying to log it now.

I think the cacher you refer to has arrived back in Portugal now and has logged the rest of his finds. He/She had a DNF on one of ours and we found it to be missing subsequently. Looks like they did a good few in Kilkenny and Dublin while visiting family in Enniscorthy.
I have given permission to log a find on Our one which has since been replaced (again)
