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 .

Hello everyone,

Haven't been on the forums lurking, only just decided to hunt down the community after the BHP series was released.
Was wondering how you's all coordinate these types of things, like the Church Micros and the Bally Cache Rally as other examples.
We started caching last year with Wild Rover (though he's been going a lot longer than us).
It pitter-pattered out quite significantly but after the New Year's Resolution Event I got hooked and dragged the family into it.
Been storming along enjoying all the places geocaching drags you to.
Some of the puzzle caches are very abstract ... you naught yellow dots!!
And some have been fun - Matrix Series was entertaining and a personal fav was Dammit! [now sitting as our 200th find]
Still to do some truly challenging caches like the couple of 5x5s up the Mournes, but all in good time (don't really know if the kids'll be able to cope with those ones).
Anyway, looking forward to chatting and meeting fellow cachers over time.

Kevin

Welcome to forums.....I think getting registered and approved was nearly as difficult as a 5x5 cache :D
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."

Don't worry about it. It is just the last stages of Alzheimers. They go away after a while when someone remembers where they left them!! :roll:
