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 .

D/T balance

Post by theswerve » Wed May 20, 2015 6:45 pm

I remember seeing somewhere a challenge cache that required your D/T to balance ...As of yesterday mine balanced with both average 1.73...????

I remember seeing it too. Its somewhere in the UK and I think I found it randomly on Projects challenge checkers. Had a quick dig but can't find it... looooads of challenges over there.

It might have been discussed at an event. I think I remember someone asking me about such a challenge. Wouldn't have been published as it's not verifiable and changes caching behaviour.
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."

Sorry to ruin your day Niall, but they do exist :(

That wasn't the one I was thinking of, but to qualify your average D and average T have to be 1.9.

There is definitely a UK one where the average D has to equal the average T but I can't find it. They shouldn't have been published, I don't think. Qualifying for those would be like pulling teeth. It'd be no fun at all.

Strangely, mine were balanced at 1.85 until I logged four sitters this evening...
