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 .

Many of you probably already are aware of the Geocaching Ireland Facebook Group:

http://www.facebook.com/?sk=2361831622# ... 4042039725

Also there are many members of this forum that also have personal FB pages. I'm creating this thread so that anyone who isn't in the FB loop can post a link here or can see others and send them friend requests.

It's always a good idea to include your caching ID in a friend request so the recipient will know who you are.

I've posted in this section of the forums as it's only available to logged in members and gives a bit more privacy.

And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."

I'm on there but have no patience for it.
Did you know that Employers look in there to see what you're up to?
I heard of a chap where a pic of him being 'lewd' while out boozing ended up on facebook.
I'm not sure where it ended up, but in essence you have very little control over who puts what of YOU up there and who can see it.

I will assure you all requests will be declined except those whom I know and are REAL friends.
In fact I am going to relook at some of those supposed friends soon and those with whom I am linked and do not have any real dialogue with will be removed.
No point in having 500 listed friends and communicating with about 20.

Hi, My name is Tina O'Toole, facebook profile http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/pro ... 0726376614

I an not a big fan of facebook, I hate the constant barrage of 'join this' , 'sign that campaign' etc. Also all the silly hugs and flowers etc, maybe some people like all that , but to me it is so insincere. But it is a way to communicate with family & friends etc. So anyway, hello from me! and if you wan't to be friends, do tell me you are a fellow geocacher, thanks.
